Live Streaming WordCamp SF in Style

Brad Williams, founder of WebDevStudios, couldn’t make it all the way out to San Francisco for this year’s WordCamp SF.

Instead, he’s streaming it in style.

Paying for a live stream is something new that Automattic added this year. Total sales for Live Stream + T-shirt is 229 and Live Stream only is at 317, for a total of $7,292 in sales. That’s a fairly big chunk of revenue considering that many other WordCamps offer live streaming for free.

I wonder if this will become a trend — charging for live stream access — or if this is particular just for WordCamp SF since it’s the official WordCamp.

Are you watching the live stream? What are your thoughts on it?

    I loved being able to watch it, but I think those of us that paid should have access to the whole thing so we can watch more of the speakers at our leisure. On out own time. Yes?
