    I am betting there is some wonderful info to be gleaned here… but I cannot hear the man speak… website design may be a forte, but video editing and creation seems to be lacking… I’m just sayin…

    I gave it up… frustrated me.

    Got a link? Daryl’s blog seems to be abandoned since May. Is this project still alive?

    note to the camera guy: tripods start at around $30, and if you can hook up a directional mic, try to construct a little cardboard or paper acoustic cone when shooting a distant speaker. Thanks!

    I must admit I’m crazy about working inside the carrington framework but this vid has me extremely interested. I can’t wait to try this out on my test site! I’m especially interested in the export option and it’s possibilities! Keep up the good work guy!

    after googling and following some links, I finally found the link to the project at http://code.google.com/p/elastictheme/ but it seems somewhat stalled for the last few months.

    It would be nice to mention the project status or a link in the video meta-data.

    This looks awesome. I don’t really know enough about building my own themes from scratch for WordPress so I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

    if only we have a regular post to learn about this. The video player doesn’t work if you don’t have a very fast connection. Why don’t you switch to the Youtube player? It adapts well to all connection speeds.

      Even with HD enabled, the video only uses 8-20kb/s which is quite nice.

      What use would VideoPress be if Automattic wouldn’t use it for WordPressTV?
      For my taste, the player is just fine.

    I get a headache just thinking about programming this, but I really like it. It’s amazing to see how crazy projects like this that massively extend the base system, all because of the freedom of open source. I feel like CMS’s like Drupal and Joomla integrate theme management (node and menu based systems) into their administrative section, which is their main advantage over WordPress as a CMS. Yet WordPress is the best blogging platform out there. It’s infinitely customizable and hackable, and I often use it in conjunction with a Drupal or Joomla based site.

    Daryl is taking on two major responsibilities here, theme development and CMS development. He is focusing almost entirely on theme development and the javascript UI for it. I’d personally like to see more consideration towards how this will affect WordPress as CMS. Either way, bravo! This looks totally awesome.

    Rather tiring to watch when the video is bouncing around. Would be ideal to use a tripod and zoom in to pick out finer detail when required. Content is good but could use a more confident style of presentation. I like the concept – a lot.

    I’ve found for these videos I get better results if I just subscribe to the podcast feed & watch them on my computer.

    Is there a place to be updated as Elastic is modified/updated? I will be a user, not a developer.

    I posted video of Daryl’s Sunday Ignite session talk – it’s brief, also handheld, but I think you’ll find the audio acceptable.

      Thanks for the link to the other video, Joly.

      Is the Sunday stuff included in the masters you’re sending me? I’m looking forward to receiving those so we can get them posted up here.

Change the way you look at WordPress themes. Daryl Koopersmith talks about Elastic and the concepts behind today’s WordPress themes. Elastic is a plugin and theme framework that began development during GSoC 2009. Elastic isn’t just a parent theme; it represents a fundamental change to how WordPress themes work.
