I agree with Steve.

At the end of the day, most or all of us are volunteers, and we at OK
Melbourne have really stepped up our game over the past 5 months with
just *running* weekly events, let alone publishing videos of them
online; it really is quite a bit of work.

I'd love nothing more than to be able to publish all our meetings as
video and text under a CC license all over the 'net, but I work
full-time and have 4 distinct volunteer positions, only one of which is
Open Knowledge. We're doing our best.
