Well a good work-around there is to live stream the sessions. That way no

anything after the
conference. In Gdansk 2010 all sessions were live streamed. That no
Wikimania after that has held up to that standard is confusing me.
That is actually a good example of a bad example. :) The sessions were
indeed live-streamed, and it actually worked. But to this day, this
category is empty:
Despite the sessions _also_ being recorded, in all four tracks, the
recordings have disappeared with the vendor under confusing circumstances,
and several attempts to recover them have all foundered (I never found out
the details); the recordings are lost to the movement to this day.
More generally, I'll say the arguments made in favor of recording
(particularly by Andrew Lih, Victor Grigas, and Ed Saperia) are persuasive
to me, and I'm in favor of the extra investment in the future.
