Oh, everyone knows cons are easy.  Demos and streaming are the easiest part!

When we did the first con, Ike argued video recording only worked if you
hired an outside firm, particularly in open source land.

I argued against it.  We didn't get actually uploaded video or streaming
until Patrick, I think. In the process of me recognizing I was wrong, we
never had any recordings. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure nothing
worked until Patrick took control.
