We wouldn't be able to host the videos on the BLU servers, but I see 
no reason why we couldn't host them on something like YouTube. We could 
also make DVD-quality images available on the Installfest server so 
people attending our Installfests could burn their own DVDs. 

I started videotaping our meetings back in 2000, with the idea of 
having the raw footage available for when the Linux video editing 
tools finally mature. I kept it up for a couple years until one of 
our speakers asked us not to record his presentation. After that I 
never really got back into it. 

Also, it didn't occur to me until later to ask for signed releases 
from the presenters, so the footage would be unusable anyway until 
I tracked down whoever I needed releases from for each meeting. 

As long as we can satisfy the liability issues, I see no reason not 
to try this. Josh sounded willing to allow it for his talk in January.
