Hello Ross,
thank you for your reply.
Below the missing links to the website[1] and video[2], sorry about that.
The objective is provide to speakers (most from ASF) and attendees an
enjoyable
experience in a not ordinary venue.
I did not expect any financial support from ASF, just support to get the
word
out.
