No ruffles, comments are always needed and appreciated. I wanted to assure you and everyone on this list that there has been a lot of planning in this space, we are not just jumping into this today. We are asking the list today for PPV/Streaming suggestions (in terms of who would use it) as we want to monetize any live streams produced this year.

I'm not on the advisory committee, board, any leadership position in the group. I do feel it important to participate in the group discussions and provide input as someone who is distant from the event, and I attend the event when possible, which is my reason for list subscription.
> I have no horse in this race. The potential concerns I raised will not affect me if they come to pass. Except for the possibility of getting access to the live feeds while I attend in person, I'm not sure I am affected in any way by this effort. And, I align with the concept in general, so I have no philosophical issues with the idea.

> I mean no disrespect to the valiant volunteers who produce the show and the live and recorded material. As someone helping to produce similar material in the Midwest, I apologize for ruffling feathers. I can do no better in the areas I mention, which is why I hesitated to surface them.
