I don't think live streaming is what we want.  People live in different
timezones, so having recordings/slides/papers/proceedings available that
anyone can download an consume whenever he has time seems more
reasonable to me.

Although (IMO) the 2009 workshop recordings didn't come out with the quality we expected, we have identified the causes and their new equipment and infra-structure were highly enhanced since then.

oh, and if we did it on the moon, I prefer we did it on the dark side of
the moon, so noone can see us making fun of Perl, Ruby, and Python ;)

I can hear the soundtrack on the opening session already :)
