XDC was a really great conference and loved the fact that it was
in just one room which kept all the hallway conversations in that room resulting
into more networking.
But I agree with Andres that for the videos, it would be great to split the
huge youtube video stream per presentation and have seperate links for each
talk somewhere on the XDC page.
