Are you planning to record the conference sessions and make them available as Podcasts?

Hi Ian,
You can find two keynotes and one session online already as posted here. Stay tuned as we make more sessions available.

Unfortunately, the streaming from the video site is very choppy here and subject to resets (I haven't yet got past the Tableau V4 new features demo when it goes from State level to zip code level maps - it jumps back to the start at that point - less than 14 minutes in).

Any chance of putting it in a form we can download and play back locally?

The sessions are very impressive btw. I'm starting to wonder if the mapping recognises UK county names, postcodes etc - or how to get the long/lat data in to enable this capability...

FWIW, I also have difficulty hearing Stephen Few... I guess I should have been in Seattle :-}
