Yes, I am hoping that all of the talks are recorded on video. I will
be working with the conference center this week to see what we can
actually accomplish. My hope is to just use their A/V team to handle
the setup and recording. We'll take the videos and publish them
somehow/somewhere. I hope to know more about this soon (what we can
expect for video files, formats, etc.).

Thanks for the pointer, though! I'll keep it in mind.
