I have never been to WWDC. When I have gone to other similar things for flex/flash/actionscript programming they give everyone a dvd at the end with recorded lecture sessions and source code on it. This info is also available online.

If this information becomes available online can someone please post the web address (and username/password if needed).

Also it would be very nice if someone could get a .torrent of this information as soon as the wwdc 2008 is over.

Apple has recently been releasing selected past WWDC videos over iTunes to developers with the free online ADC membership. I don't think they do DVDs anymore.

However, all the information presented at the WWDC sessions is under an NDA, so anyone who posts any information is likely to be sued. The public won't get any information regarding new API and so forth until Snow Leopard has shipped or is close to shipping.

No, not all the information is under an NDA, there are lots of sessions on general mac programming, like this for instance:

http://developer.apple.com/wwdc/sessions/#tab=mac&session=556

That would be of interest to developers but certainly isn't under an NDA. Now almost everything about Snow Leopard is, but if you are a developer targeting the mac, there is plenty of stuff that Apple could release to the public without really revealing anything under NDA.

Everything at WWDC is except the keynote is technically NDA'd. It's incredibly dumb.

As Catfish said it is under NDA, because there's a blanket NDA for the entire conference except the Keynote. (I was there and there were signs everywhere reminding everyone of this.) However, videos of sessions like the one you posted above are likely to be released to all developers in the free ADC program later through iTunes (usually some time after the select/premiere members get it).
