Pulling off remote sessions like that have a very real and potentially
large cost because it is far beyond the scope of GotoMeeting or
Facetime. In order to not have it look like a high school television
station newscast, you need to pay professionals who do this sort of
thing for a living.
I do not disagree that making these sessions available to the widest
audience possible is important, and that there are some benefits to
leveraging the internet to do so. But it's not cheap.
