We're looking at 20k to bring in a professional video company to record 
all the talks, and do post-production. There's also the option of 
splitting the cost with another sponsor - one has identified themselves 
privately, but are not, at the moment, willing to pick up the entire 
tab. So there's an opportunity for sharing the cost.

And, lest this number feel really large, folks that have done this can 
verify that it is indeed a HUGE amount of work to do this well.

But it's kind of an all-or-nothing thing, so far as which sessions we 
record. We don't want to field "why was that talk recorded and not mine" 
kinds of questions, and we don't want to miss talks. So we don't really 
have a half-way option.

We also have the option of bringing the ASF's digital recorders, 
plugging them into the audio boards, and then doing volunteer audio 
editing after the event, like we did in Vancouver - but that's *just* audio.
