While I agree very much that it is tremendously useful at RIPE, their
logistics are somewhat different.  While I don't know the specifics of
how they manage it, one obvious difference is that they have far fewer
parallel things going on during each session, and I believe the
transcription services are only happening in the main room.

I'd love to see it, as professional transcriptionists have a skill
that to me seems superhuman and personally unachievable.  I fear
though that the practical obstacles to it are large.
