in reply to Do you plan to attend YAPC::America::North 2002?

At this moment only 7% of the answers are some form of "Yes". Not that monks represent a huge proportion of the conference's public, or that even this poll has any statistical significance really, but...

Sure looks like a great excuse to lobby them to live stream the thing for us! All tracks, all talks, real time. Not only would it be a First, but it'd be more affordable, possibly interactive, and more.

Imagine if a company sent one person, then four others back at the office watched the tracks they were interested in, and used the person on site to pick up books, get autographs, etc. :)

And, wouldn't exhibitors like it if we could interact with booth staff?

'course, that's all just a pipe dream...

    I'm thinking of trying to capture the conference via my dinky intel cam and vaio sr7k. I'll have to play with it some to get a feel for how much space I'll need. I'm leaning towards a slideshow with sound kind of idea. Maybe grab so many frames per minute or hour. Of course, it might not be nice copyright-wise to record it and make it available on the web. I suppose I could always ask. Let you know if it works out or not.
