Will there be any video/audio from the conference available on the web?

Sorry Markus, at this point we are sticking with blogging only. We still have many speakers/audience members who aren't comfortable with the idea of live proceedings on the web. Perhaps in the future. But we have additional blogs on the horizon one of which will be posted this evening. So please join the discussion in that way if you can.

I understand. It's just that when you promote your conference so well your readers (like me) want more, like audio/video.

Thanks for understanding, Markus. I hope you can join us for live audio/video soon.
