[erlang-questions] Videos from Erlang Factory SF Bay 2014 up on ErlangCentral.org

I had the same problem - I cannot read or watch content on Erlang Central
website without an account so I actually set up an account in order to do
so (very rare occurrence). Then I do not receive the activation email which
it seems you must have to actually use an account. So I try to log in and
fail, then go to the effort of requesting another activation email, which
also does not arrive. At this point I throw up my hands, close the Erlang
Central tab, and move on. ;-)

Probably not the experience folks are looking for in an outreach site ...
