January 4, 2006 - YAPC::NA 2005 download stats

This year the Toronto folks managed to record audio and video for the YAPC::NA conference sessions, as reported on use.perl.org. After a few months of availability, Fulko Hew has shared his stats with me:

7 mail-orders
111 CD downloads
953 DVD downloads
? private duplications
---------------
= 4 Terabytes

Given that the DVD was 4.23 Gig, that's a lot of bits, both for the sender and receiver. I don't think that many folks would download it unless they were really going to look at it. I just hope some of those folks will be convinced to join us in person next year! :)


Bittorrent next year then?
