I’d like to see talks from my event or organization on DGREE.org. Who do I contact?
If you are a conference organizer and would like to see your talks on DGREE.org, we would like to hear from you. Be aware that a series of basic rules apply to DGREE talks: no corporate presentations, product pitches, or self-promoting speeches. Interesting/original content, passionate/compelling storytelling, and good production quality (audio/video/slides) area key prerequisite and welcomed.
You must hold the copyright on the talk and be ready to share it with LENS Ventures, LLC on a non-exclusive basis. All DGREE talks are distributed under the same Creative Commons license (see “Are DGREE talks copyrighted?”).
Please send us information about the speaker, the talk, the event/location where it was filmed, and a short written summary of the speech.
Ultimately, the choice of the talks and speakers that belong on DGREE.org is decided by the DGREE team exclusively, based on criteria of interest, originality, quality, insightfulness, affinity with other DGREE talks, and capacity to further the mission of DGREE.
I’d like to post my own talk on DGREE.org.
Although this isn’t currently possible, we are investigating the option going forward. We do welcome your thoughts and feedback on our existing talks via our DGREE forum.
