For those who missed it, Steve Kondik, the founder and lead developer of CyanogenMod, along with several other members of the CM team gave a compelling talk in San Francisco at the start of Google I/O. Delivered during the SF Android User Group Meetup (hosted at Yelp), Kondik's talk took a look at CyanogenMod's role in the Android world, some of the project's goals, solutions, and the challenges the CM team faces in getting CM to new devices, explaining everything from conflicts with proprietary drivers to locked bootloaders and more.

Thanks to Marakana, the talk is now available to watch via YouTube, with the subsequent Q&A session coming "as soon as it's available." Without further ado, here's the video:

Update: Here's the Q&A from that same session:

    Remember back in the good early days when Google sent Steve the C&D notices? We all we're wondering what would happen to Steve and CM. Now Steve giving a panel discussion at Google i/o. Android has matured so much over the last 3 years!

    Interesting, but man, he's not much of a speaker. Watching anyway for the insight.

    It's always so much better to NOT see the geeks. They're much cooler when you can't see them. Sergey Brin is one of the few geeks who's managed to break that cliche and he even does it while wearing the android glasses. Go figure.
