   I videotaped both days of the NANOG (Regional Techs) meeting a couple
years ago and got many compliments on keeping the camera on the talent,
zooming in on the overheads such that they were readable, and even picked
off the main audio feed in the auditorium.  My motto is: If ya can't get
all the available information onto the video tape, then the event wasn't
worth taping. 
   I'm willing to do this again but as I won't be getting overtime from my
employer to be there, I'd have to ask my usual consulting fee of $150 per
day. (I know, I work cheap).  For that I'll provide the folks running the
MBone gear with a clean baseband audio and video feed.

P.S. Kinda short notice for Monday's meeting, but, to really do it up good
the meeting should be shot with two cameras, one for talent and the other
for wide shots and when questions are coming from the peanut gallery.  A
shotgun mic for peanut gallery questions would be nice as well :-)
