I have two Asterisk servers (one in the US, one in the UK) sitting on 
the end of my cell phones so I could arrange for this to happen next 
week, if you'd like :-) Caveats are that I need to work out a way to 
capture the audio and stream it...

Anyone who wants to help test other recording ideas is welcome to do so 
too - anyone want to bring a camera along and try that too? Let's 
experiment with a bunch of different ideas at the same time.

Hosting wise, I can offer free hosting on up to a few 
GB/month - we could get that going and if it starts eating too much 
bandwidth, we'll have to figure something else out.
