I liked the video, I really think we should make more standalone video of what can be done with the notebook.
Like really small tutorial/demos.
If I had to do the video I wouldn't show how to start up a notebook from the command line, start the video in the dashboard.
Would it be possible to record only the current window, and possibly without any clutter like tabs/ menubar…
and much less wider than previous video, it would make it more readable I found that it was a little difficult to see
was was beeing typed.
Now, if you are more comfortable with english than I am, I would really appreciate a voice that describe
things instead of the music, but that might be a little too much asked :-)
As for the feature that need to be shown, I'm probably biased as I develop the notebook a lot,
and think that the input of user will be better :-)
If you plan on making short transcript on what you think showing in a shared ether pad or along that would be great.
If you want to "cheat" a little to type long cell, I might be able to code you a patch that allow to create cell already full of code or mimic
the fact that you are typing really fast :-) I should completely do that for my tutorial at euroscipy :-)
