Looking For Presenters For How-To Sessions At Streaming Media East Show

At the end of this month I will publish the advance program for the Streaming Media East show, taking place May 15-16 in NYC. One of the changes I am making this year is that 50% of all the sessions will be stand-alone instructional how-to presentations. I've also added a fourth track this year so we will have a total of 35 sessions, half of which will be all how-to presentations.

While it's great to talk about a lot of streaming media topics like encoding, video players, webcasting production etc. attendees want to do more than discuss these topics, they want to see them in action. So we're going to have more hands-on sessions at East than ever before. Many of these sessions are already decided on, but I have room for a few more. So if you have an idea of a how-to session you want to do at the show, reach out to me now. I already have the following how-to sessions confirmed: (to clarify, I am not looking for presenters for the below sessions, these are sessions that already are scheduled and have presenters)
