It appears that so far, of all 2007 talks only 3 are available to public.
Is it planned to improve on that, and maybe implement the idea of making
audio/video recordings? As it stands, BoostCon is going to have limited impact
outside those that attend.
(And on the topic of venue and airport -- I've just checked flights to Apsen,
from Moscow, from Berlin and from London, and all of them appear to be 2+ stops.
