great - I wish, I could participate...

Are there any plans to make the speeches afterwards online available?

I second the question about making the event available online. Are there any plans for this? This is a historical event and it would be shame if it goes into ether with no video record.

It's not likely we'll see this caliber of participants together any time soon (if ever), especially given the age of some of the participants...

Also, Rich Hickey's presentation is shown to go from 18:15 to 18:15. Is this a typo or we have finally learned to control time space continuum? :-)

It would be fantastic if there was some audio or video recording of this event. Especially when we look back at it during Lisp100.
