Also, please consider the "caboose effect" when documenting speaking events. Multiple cameras rolling means a great deal of hard drive space, and external audio means a long time syncing.

I think that transcription is a far better way to document the GA. If livestream is being archived, then there's your video. Doesn't have to be a big production IMO.
I also feel this way about many of the speakers and discussion groups. It was far more convenient for me to read Zizek's speech from yesterday, rather than watch the video (although he is a great speaker).

I agree. I've been audio recording them but never have time to go through them. Strictly archival. Better to write shit down for quick access to information. But still super cool to have the recordings.

are you really going to WATCH and log GAs? I mean.. it's awesome, but could be very overwhelming..

I think it would be really interesting if we had not only minutes, but
transcripts of the GAs.
Has anyone done this yet? Can I?
Inorder to do so, I would need the archives of the livestreams and I
can't seem to find if those exist.
