1) Alex:  How specifically do we do that: get the start of the
presentation from the older video?  What is the cut point/time?  [Any
chance it would be remedied by July 4 (one day before the Berkeley

2) Anyone: Is there a way for a person to download & save a copy of
these youtube videos for later playback?  That way sites watching the
video could avoid streaming bottleneck network problems, & people can
watch the videos without interruptions.

3) So far I've found or been directed to these videos as possibilities
for the July 5 Berkeley/Americas meeting:

a) BayPIGgies Monthly Meeting: Python on the OLPC XO Laptop

b) BayPIGgies Monthly Meeting: Overview of about twenty Python Buzzwords

c) Google Developers Day US - Python Design Patterns

d) Painless Python for Proficient Programmers

e) OSS Speaker Series: Python for Programmer

I'm thinking I'll, in advance of the meeting, on the mailing list (which
I'm working to set up now), ask the meeting attendees which talk they
would prefer to have for this first multisite meeting.
