Hi Michael, 

Do we have any solid evidence of this? Clearly as
conference organisers we worry may impact the economics of running the
conference, but perhaps it servs more for the very remote (overseas)
audience? I know fromt he January streaming of TBL w ehad most viewers
outside of Australia. 

The cost of streaming (versus recording) is
almost nothing (indeed, its easy to get this sponsored). The base cost
you reference is incurred to video - which I see as a continuing return
for all parties involved. 

In Perth, PLUG applied for state lottery
funds to get equipment - $8K. PLUG has effectively enough equipment
itself for a one room stream - LCA each year is between 3 and 6 streams,
so we could scale and own all or some of the equipment (perhaps not
cameras, but the rest of the kit). Perhaps we should apply for federal
grants for any identified equipment (I defer to those more informed on
this possibility).
