This past summer at the first annual Open Video Conference, there was a lot of buzz surrounding Kaltura, a software that enables people to edit, host and publish their own videos, as well as make use of re-mixable Creative Commons content. We had an opportunity to sit down with Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura's CEO, at the event and discuss why the web needs an open source video platform so badly.

(Update: Download an ogg of this video here.)

For the record, it was Ron's idea to wear the red hat in the video.

I'm a video editor and producer who has been with Red Hat since 2008. Before that, I worked in television. I have a passion for storytelling and story structure in a variety of forms. I'm interested in visual culture in general, and documentaries in particular.

As a member of Red Hat's video team, I strive to tell real stories that reveal the brand's most valuable asset: the talented people at work in the company and the community.
