It will be sad, a great loss or even a travesty if the worshops are not
recordered somehow.

Even if by using a couple of mobile phones for good sound and "so so" video.

The simulcast won'rt be anywhere near as useful as it could be without
these Workshops.

If the slides,text, resources  etc ultimately become available that could
go someway towards mitigating the situation,
and not waste of all that programming wisdom by limiting it's access to the
wider community.

We still haven't got our 2000 widgets after nearly 4 years, and  I will let
others decide why this is - I have my own opinions.

Any Workshops -  whether Monty's, Marks Ali's or yours -  should be
recorded (I hope people in the audience don't have their phones confiscated
for making "bootleg" copies).

If LC wants an extra pound of flesh then so be it - but "Say it ain't so".

My 2 Pence worth
