BOGLEHEADS 12 VIDEOS

Post by VELO724X »

To All:

The first video from the proceedings of Bogleheads 12 is now up on Vimeo. The rest will be going up over the next few weeks. To start off, please enjoy another wonderful discussion between our mentor, Jack Bogle, and Bill Bernstein.

BH 12 - Bogle & Bernstein Fireside Chat
https://vimeo.com/channels/bogleheads/77404520

The channel, which collects the proceedings from the reunions, can be found here:
https://vimeo.com/channels/bogleheads

Here, you will find the Jack Bogle Keynotes, Q & A's, and Panel of Experts discussions from past Bogleheads Reunions, currently Bogleheads 9, 10, 11 and, starting now, 12.

You will also find links to the proceedings in the Bogleheads Conventions section in the wiki.
http://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Boglehea ... n_Meetings

Once again, heartfelt thanks to Jack Bogle and all the authors and experts who traveled to the meeting to impart their wisdom. Also, I am especially grateful to Mel Lindauer and his army of organizers and volunteers for making these gatherings possible. The wonderful and interesting people I always meet make attending these meetings the intellectual and inspirational highlight of my year.

A special shout out goes to my colleagues Pongo, familydoc and Victoria who work very, very hard documenting these events for all to enjoy and benefit from and also LadyGeek who brings it all together with the amazing wiki.

Thanks for doing this, and thanks to everyone who puts this all together.

To those that did not attend, it will be well worth your time to watch these videos.

These guys and gals are doing a great public service by providing this free investment advice to the general population.

Excellent fireside chat.

Not quite as good as being there in person, but sure is a close second.

Keep in mind Bill did that chat less than 24 hours after surgery. Serious Boglehead commitment there.

I watched the fireside chat video with Mr. Bogle and WIlliam Bernstein. Excellent. I like Mr. Bogle, he wears really well and is more impressive the more you listen to him. BTW, I bought Bernstein's book today the Four Pillars of Investing.

For those of us who were not able to attend, are there any videos of the other sessions?

Yes! I have all the sessions recorded and will be uploading them as quickly as I can. Keep an eye on this thread as I'll post when I upload each of them. (Although I have unlimited storage space, the main limiting factor is a weekly limit for uploading large video files. Well, that and my day job!)

Glad everyone is enjoying. The sessions were phenomenal!

Thank you everyone of you for making these resources available. I assume I'll be able access the videos directly on my web browser, but I was excited to see if they were accessible through Vimeo on my new Apple TV...

...I found Bogleheads on my Apple TV/Vimeo, but it says that there are no videos there. :(

The videos feel like a nice warm bowl of chicken soup for my financial health, as compared to all the financial porn that I'm constantly being inundated with out there. Happy Holidays to all the Bogleheads!!!!

Are these videos archived someplace – perhaps on Wiki? My computer is too slow to play these videos; however, I shall be buying a new, super duper computer early next year, so I thought I might be watch them at that time.

Tears of joy are a good thing, Taylor! Let's hope that together, the three of us can continue the crusade that Jack started for many more years! We further hope that future generations of Bogleheads will continue what we've started when we're no longer around to do so.

Thank you, Taylor!

Doing a secret handshake with Jack was a great honor, and now I have this spectacular memory of the event!

Growing up in the Soviet Union, I could not imagine in my wildest dreams that I would live in the United States, become a capitalist by the virtue of owning shares of companies, own the entire market using index funds, and shake hands with the greatest patron of the individual investors.

Speaking on behalf of all the Bogleheads, I hope you three musketeers can continue the crusade and give ordinary investors a fair shake for a long, long time. Your Boglehead legacy including the The Bogleheads' Guide to Retirement Planning and this forum, as well as your experience and wisdom have been invaluable to this younger newbie Boglehead.
