The video does not appear to support the article text. [?]

wow! That's going to take years to listen, and will come out of my reading quota.

Wonder what's the thought behind this? Coming after a no photography/no recording regimen. Surely it is more than just about openness.

That is going to be really interesting.

I clicked on the link but is says that I have to be a digital subscriber to the Herald to read the article.

Does it say where the video/audio will be posted?

Thanks.

I sure hope Munger did the same with the WESCO meetings. Those were gems.
Hope they were recorded too.

It doesn't say when it will be out or how but it is in the working, the company that did the photography is working on converting all the footage to a digital format.

The newspaper is owned by Berkshire so little doubt about the accuracy of the reporting in my opinion.
Very exciting news, hope they won't be too greedy and charge money for it  ::)

Thank you for putting some colour on this for those of us that are non-subscribers, WneverLOOSE,

I speculate and suppose, now that the operational responsibilities for all the Berkshire subs have been delegated, Mr. Buffett somehow feels bored and - perhaps -  started to pump subscription sales at OWH.  [j/k - ; - D ]

This is great news! I can't wait to see / hear them.

I'm sure they'll end up on YouTube eventually... my commute is about to get a lot more educational  :)
