I know we can't record sessions but we are hoping to have a video booth for
folks to record their experiences. My thought is for folks to capture which
sessions they thought were most useful and then ask the presenters to review
session notes, then give a five minute speech on the salient points. Either
way, someone needs to bring a video camera in case we can't get funding for
taping the interviews, etc.

Agreed. People tend to self-censor when being recorded. I think the above
plan is a good compromise.
