Okay, you know I'd send you there if I controlled $budget. I don't. But
I do know there's a little money available for you to get there (if the
RH sponsored seats are still available)

Now, maybe we just send the videography intern over, and get someone
like Alex to look after him and point him in the right direction? That
can save us cost, and well, you can continue on with your internship :P

Greg, do you know this videographer? Can you send him to FUDCon II? Of
course, if you say yes, we shall draw up plans for him (and let his
creative juices run wild, as well)... If you say no, we can still draw
up plans for future FUDCon's

FWIW, Red Hat / FUDCon organisers *need* to have DV Cams lying
around/available for use. Really. And that's only the start of the
problem. Disk space, beefy machines, do you want to broadcast, etc. all
come into play. Last time we had Pogo give us machines... Jesse has
since left, and next time we ain't going to be so lucky
