Hi, I appreciate all this content coming out of Techrasa. This is the most systematic exposure of highly accomplished and super smart Iranian tech community to outside that I’ve seen. I am in New York City. Just want to provide feedback that the video streams to where I am in US is very bad. Please host your videos on Youtube or another CDN so the experience of watching your content is not diminished. The video stream keeps buffering from what I assume to be either distant hosting server or low quality bandwidth pipes.
