[Chicago] Carl and video

I need to correct some things.

I am not a team.  I am a chipy member that has a ton of gear and
expertise.  I  likes making videos of things like chipy talks.   For larger
events like PyCon I will assemble a team of volunteers for that event.
There is a group of about 6 of us that work together on the software and
workflow.  I am the only one that lives in the US.  They generally don't
know ChiPy happens unless we are experimenting with the live stream system.

I feel uncomfortable saying I charge money for doing chipy videos.  That
implies I am making videos because I think it is profitable and won't if I
don't get paid.  I am comfortable saying I will sell add space on the front
of the video, and will spend the money on whatever I feel like. In the last
12 months,  I have collected a total of about $1000.  ChiPy took out 20%.

I have a for profit LLC.  It makes the PyCon expense reimbursement process
100x easier.  I could be a 501c3, but my accountant said "don't bother, you
are not making enough money for it to be worth the paperwork."

Here is what I "charge" to setup my PA system and do video:

Find three companies and collect some amount to have their logo put on the
title of the video.
