Disappointed by the lack of official webcast of Lotusphere 2010 OGS

As I was not able to attend this years Lotusphere, I am relying on IBM to post a webcast of the Lotusphere 2010 - Opening General Session to hear about all the great stuff.
Obviously I was relying a bit on IBM's previous LS habits to post this webcast during Lotusphere itself. Or at least that is how it was in my mind.
Does anyone have an idea when or -if- it will be made available for us poor souls who where not able to attend?

Of course there has been a great coverage on the many blogs around the world already and even the live-blogging was great, but still it does not beat watching the real thing (even it is not live but a webcast).

It will come - hopefully this week. Sorry it hasn't come sooner.

The Webcast is being loaded into the IBM Software Virtual Conference Web site. We will let you know as soon as it is up. In the meantime, you can enjoy the DJ Steve Porter Remix Video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uy7micFCcA

I too was very disappointed.

For an organisation that is all about electronic collaboration it is pretty poor.

On a wider point I understand that it is important to have LS as a huge physical event but it does sometimes feel that it is operated as a profit centre and sharing the information would detract from that ( maybe I'm just too much off a sceptic ! )

Although, to be fair, the availability of slide decks via the presenters themselves is much better this year than it has been in the past.

If it were my show I would make the keynotes available immediately and ALL of the stored content available on a Lotus site 6 weeks afterwards.

It would be better for the brand as a whole - use Lotus Live and show off what it can do !
