    While I don’t think it looks at all like him, based on the more recent video making the rounds, I found several blogs that say it’s John Underkoffler demonstrating the G-Speak interface. I can’t locate a pic of Kevin Parent to validate whether it’s him or not (or any of the other Oblong principals, for that matter).
