I was actually going to send out an email asking if anyone had the
equipment to do this. I'm willing to transcode the video into other
formats, create vodcasts, and host them at MSU if someone is willing
to tape. We discussed after last year's that it would be good to have
a more formal waiver though I don't think anything came of it or it
was forgotten. I suppose we could throw together some sort of waiver
or try to get the presenter's informal permission there and remove if
the decide later they no longer want it online.

I don't want to pressure anyone into being videotaped if they're not comfortable with it, so I only plan on taping a session if the presenter opts in ahead of time. I haven't figured out anything along the lines of subsequent storage and distribution of this content post-conference, either... it's just a last-minute idea that might make sense for those who were unable to attend this year (Brad, Peter, and undoubtedly many others). For the presenters, it might be useful for CV / whuffie credits, too.
