[After further OOB discussion with Matt]

OK. I'm remain unhappy that there was recording without the awareness
of those involved (no, it wasn't made clear, to me, that there was
recording going on, until the very end of the day when I walked to
that end of the room and saw the microphone), but I can see that
completely removing everyone's contributions for the sake of my
distaste is counterproductive and that it's unreasonably
time-consuming to remove individual contributions.

So I propose that:
1) The recording is edited to contain only the full-room discussions.
2) A list of participants is compiled.
3) Permission is sought from the participants.

If all participants are willing, the recording of just the whole-room
discussions could be published.

I agree. I merely believe recordings should be made with the advance
consent of those involved.
