For all they LUGS complaining about this I'd like to make a point from
my time on the LUV comittee (2005-2007) whilst we certainly weren't
usually booked three months ahead we almost always knew about the major
talks at least a month out and often two. That level of planning is why
we were able to have such consistantly high quality of talks.

And no, being in Melbourne wasn't a bit aid to that, of the "top shelf"
talks I can think of during our time many of the best were from people
who were travelling Australia and we (OK, big props here to Chris Samuel
who did most of the speaker finding during my time on ctte) were able to
convince them that taking the detour to Melbourne was worth it to speak
to our group.

Stuff that. I'll just say that if a LUG gets the talk recorded should
they request it I commit to working with them to get me source media
in some format and I'll get it edited, encoded and uploaded.

If all six groups all decide to buy DV cameras and post me tapes then I'll
just have to go and buy a deck.

I'd also prefer to see it so that (say) LUV and Melbourne Perl Mongers
don't both get a set. A set to the largest group in the locality who
have shown themselves able to manage it under the expectation that it be
lent to other local groups for their needs.
