ISBBC 2006 Conference Proceedings

In this section are audio recordings of the 2006 International Straw Bale Building Conference hosted by the OSBBC and held at Camp Kawartha in Lakefield, Ontario, September 24—October 1, 2006.

There’s some 30 sessions in all, and many of them have an accompanying copy of the presentation visuals. Many many thanks to the very hard work of Marlene Ziobrowski who dedicated 600+ hours of her time to making these recordings available.

We know you’ll enjoy listening to these sessions.

Notes from Marlene

All of the material was either recorded with the permission of the speakers (in some cases given after they learned that they had just been recorded; given ever so graciously, in those cases, too, I might add)  or were files given to the ISBBC committee solely for the purposes of sharing with conference goers a record of the conference. So, if you want to use any material from the audio OR presentation files OR any of the images please contact the presenters themselves.

The sound quality for session audio files is all over the place. I did my best to clean it up. In many cases you wouldn’t know it. We recorded over 30 sessions, 3 simultaneously, on volunteer power and 100 bucks of equipment rental. Kinda cool, really. Ya gets what ya pays for. Hopefully the amazing content will render  every background noise and file that has gaps missing irrelevant. My deepest apologies to presenters whose presentations—in whole or in part—have been lost.
