Meeting of the Minds 2012 Ustream Video
We know that last week's sessions at Meeting of the Minds 2012 in San Francisco were valuable and unique - so it's no surprise that we've had many requests to post the video of those sessions. Indeed, every one of the sessions is worth another look.
We've begun the editing process for the high-quality videos, but as you can imagine, we will need some time to edit and polish.
In the meantime, we've asked that the video captured during our live webcast on Ustream be made available. Below you will find the webcast footage, accompanied by the list of sessions captured in each video. Again, these are unedited videos that contain multiple sessions. Edited videos are on their way, and when complete, will be added to our Talks page.
There have also been requests for the slides of each session. If you click on the title of each session below you will find the session's description, speakers and slides (when available).

The key to the Access Pass success was to make sure from the beginning that it was as easy to sign up for as possible. Eligible residents only need to input their Access Pass number into Indego’s website to make use of the discounted option. While BTS figured out the technical side of setting up the Access Pass, the Coalition has been vital to getting the word out about this alternative, and encouraging individuals to enroll.
Progress needs to be made in the evaluation of approaches to developing resilient communities. The evidence base for the effectiveness of these approaches is currently lagging behind practice. Funding for evaluation is generally too short-term to offer scope for capturing the developmental nature of community resilience related activity and evaluations on wider outcomes are lacking.
Disaster resilience is frequently pursued separately by the public and private sectors in the US. Federal, state, and local governments take it as their role to execute disaster preparedness and emergency response for their populations; however, economic recovery is often not addressed. The public sector does not necessarily engage businesses, nor does it seem to plan for the economic “reboot” required after a disaster, resulting in business disruption continuing for much longer.
