This sounds like a class I really need to be at, but I can't make it to NYC at this time.
I guess the length of the masterclass precludes the organizers from recording it.
*Anyone who is planning to go who would like to take some notes or produce a list of key points they might like to offer for my eyes?*
For a fee and with the organizer's consent of course.

I will attend this seminar and I will probably get some notes. I have no problem sharing them with you, if this is proper - It should be I think. I am not going to accept money for that, it won't be any trouble for me anyway :)
