[Owasp-board] Conference Video model

I think sending someone from the US is a bit expensive unless he is going to
pay his own way.

>From an OWASP economics standpoint,I tend to agree, but this is also the
time where a lot of people are not able to attend conferences.

So it is even more important for OWASP to make the conferences available as
free online video.

But we can indeed have a period where DVD's can be ordered (and also
afterwards) to cover the production costs.


Currently I have not yet foreseen video recording in Poland: is the 'US guy'
a good candidate to come over?

Can you send me his contact details?

Given the economics of this year, I think it would be prudent to reduce our
video recording costs where possible. In the U.S. the guy who did the
conference last year normally works on a model where he does the videos' for
free, and then sells them. Maybe we could work a deal where he provides the
videos to us six months later or something so we still get it, for free, but
don't have to pay for it, and don't have to compete with ourselves by
offering them free right away.


Does this seem reasonable to pursue?


Related to that is a question about the Australia con. They paid for video,
but the con last money. We could sell the DVDs for a while (6 months) and
then eventually put them online for free. The idea is to try to recover some
of the costs of the cost overrun. At least the amount we paid to record the
videos which was like $5K.


Are you OK with pursuing both of these options?


Thanks, Dave
