Rest assured, there will be a tape MADE of the event, just as there was
last year.  There is already a willing videographer, editor and even
distributor. It's just a matter of whether or not management can finally
agree on *allowing* it to be distributed (and working out a deal with the
speakers -- oftentimes it is the speakers who do not want their lecture
redistributed). Karen has outlined the reasons for why this was done last
year.  It is my hope that at some point the convention lectures will be
available for anyone with interest.
