    “One web, CSS3, and HTML5 (video)”
    Is Java required for that one or something?
    All I get is a box with “Determining user environment…” and a hidden login box for a “Password Protected Conference”.

      Honestly, I have no idea.

      Try searching for HTML5 in http://tcs.java.no/tcs/

        Thanks, found it.

        Download links:
        Audio only (MPEG-4A)
        Video (AVC-1+MPEG-4A)

        Not sure if they’ll work (might be IP based or something), but might as well post them anyway.

            Glad it were of help.

            This below here is just a review of the video:

            Personally I didn’t like it very much. I guess I were expecting a more high-level talk, instead it were mostly a listing of CSS elements (a la CSS3.info) interspersed with advertisement for Opera. That and the only thing he mentioned about HTML5 were that short snippet at the end and no mention of canvas, drag’n’drop, better forms or threaded JavaScript.
            The only new information, that I gained, were that Opera Mini doesn’t render anything on the local machine; the rendering instead happens on remote servers owned by Opera. This pretty much made it feel like he wanted the title to be “One web, under Opera”. Obviously this is probably not true, but not really the sort of impression you’d like to leave.
            Next time I think he ought to plan his time better and choose a better title. I can’t really see were the “one web” part fits in in the video?
