Yep, PyCon AU's videos were online the day after Ryan from NDV
returned home (we had rather poor speed at our conference venue).

At LCA2011, videos from Monday were online by the Wednesday *DURING*

And to prove how right they've got it, compare the LCA2011 videos to
the LCA2010 videos. I know which I'd prefer.
