Sorry for delay, true to form — sucked up by all the festivities of the weekend. But, we’re officially back to work and I’m glad to say that today we’re releasing the complete video of “Heroes of Usenet,” with moderator Jason Scott and a host of luminaries. The description:

Now only browseable through Google’s dirty porthole, Usenet’s early history holds parallels, lessons, anecdotes and memories well worth sharing with the current online world. Moderator Jason Scott brings you a panel of historians, history-makers, internet famous and internet infamous figures to talk about Usenet, the worldwide networked messaging system that showed everyone How It Was Done.

Uploading big honkin’ files have been giving us a bit o’ trouble with Blip, but rather than delay the content coming out, we’re starting to split panel videos into sections. So, Heroes of Usenet is in three, glorious sections (and embedded for your viewing pleasure after the jump)

It’s also pretty easy to navigate the sections by going to our main show page. Enjoy! More to come in the next few days. Stay tuned.
