i know aaron would like it recorded and understand his reasoning why:
there are people out there who don't have time to actually watch the
real talks over several hours and prefer a compendium of summaries
both as an FYI and perhaps to determine whether it's worthwhile to go
hit the full videos.

for me, it's not as important, so do whatever is most convenient for
you. i don't know if anyone has spoken up about what you do, but i
find your service of recording, editing, and putting the videos online
to be a privilege that would not exist if you aren't volunteering and
putting in the effort of doing it. so i'd like to offer a big THANKS
from those of us who appreciate what you're doing.

if you feel it's worthwhile, feel free to announce after the meetings
that you're taking donations for more "professional editing" of the
videos. we used to take donations to cover for hot food that someone
used to bring, and there was no problem with ppl chipping in. of
course, things may be different in this economy....
