Well, the practical reality of it is that it is HARD to do full-blown  
video for a conference.  Shooting is easy, post-production is hard-  
and they charge for the disks...  (Mostly post-conference corporate  
purchasing gets the disks).

Additionally, there's less incentive to *go* to the conference, if  
everyone thinks the vids will be online afterwards- and everyone  
knows a good con is about what happens BEING THERE... :)

I think it could all be done in a way that makes the conference  
materials openly available, but I'm wondering if there's any idea  
about the impact of doing it that way, (having all conference stuff  
online right after the conference?)
