This is a cool idea, but there's a lot to be said for having one video per
talk as far as archival purposes are concerned.

I often like to kick back and watch videos from conferences I wasn't able to
attend (or for talks I missed) while waiting for long db builds or
compilation sessions.

Do we have the resources to do both?

Also, do we know what that groovy video-mixing software they use at PyCon is

 Tim? Do you want to say anything about AV-related planning?
