This sort of stuff happens literally EVERY year! At this point, you can 
pretty much guarantee that for any Dconf, Day 1's keynote doesn't get 
professionally livestreamed, if its recorded at all. At the very LEAST, 
it makes us look bad.

Is there SOMETHING we can do about this moving forward? Maybe use 
Dconf/Dfoundation funds to hire a proven video crew not reliant on 
venue, or something...?
