I've done a fair bit of thinking about this and I've come to the same
conclusion. I think it'd be far better getting an active video
infrastructure into place to make it really easy for those with
existing equipment to get involved, off the bat, and that doesn't
have to involve a huge (or even necessarily any) supplied equipment,
although that may be an indirect consequence.
Video footage I think is something that would definitely be a big
asset to the FOSS community, and the more people we can educate/get
involved on the various techniques/technologies/etc, the better.
Costs involved with single events (versus a conference) can actually
be quite cheap, and entirely volunteer powered if properly
structured; the key here really is exposure.
More on this soon, I hope ;-)
