The primary goal (and product) of the OLS Transcription Project is to provide high-quality transcripts based on the recorded sessions from the Ottawa Linux Symposium. The sessions from OLS are of a highly technical nature in most cases. These transcripts provide access to important technical detail regarding protocol and kernel internals which might otherwise be easily available only to people attending these talks (or those listening to the audio recordings).
