Modern technology makes it easy to record audio and video. Now, after a brouhaha in which an individual attending a public meeting of the Regents was barred from recording the session, the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the policy barring such activity is about to be officially changed.

Audio from the Regents meetings is streamed live. But the audio is not made available after the meeting ends. Any reason why not? For that matter, video could be streamed and then archived, as is done at many other public meetings nowadays in California. Any reason why not? Just asking.
