Paul,

Since its free to mathematica customers, shouldn't it be possible to tape
it and host it on something like google video?

I know they have a pay-per-view type of service, but I don't know if they
have a password-protected service. I'm thinking something on the order
of:

    a) users calling mathematica with your key/receipt/proof-of-purchase
    b) getting a password for downloading these videos via google video.

That way, it would be a lot more convenient/informative for those of 
us who would like to attend one of these seminars but for whatever
reason cannot. Its not quite equivalent to being there, but its
an acceptable alternative.

Ed
