Unedited Feed from the Viz Industry panel at Anime Expo 2011. Transcription: bayoab
Note: ( ) is usually commenting on the panel and was not said.

16:10:15 <bay|AX|Viz> (Viz will be starting late, the Miku panel appeared to have started about 35 min late.)
16:17:08 <bay|AX|Viz> (Correction, 45 minutes late)
16:18:49 <bay|AX|Viz> (So far the Miku panel has just been a generic overview of what Miku is, all the other Charater Voices, how the system with Miku works with copyright , etc)
16:25:03 <bay|AX|Viz> ( http://twitter.com/#!/AnimeExpo/status/86933352426389504 < orly?)
16:25:34 <bay|AX|Viz> (Wow, miku cookies with QR codes on the back that you can scan.... Miku senbei)
16:26:00 <bay|AX|Viz> (The QR code plays music)
16:27:22 <bay|AX|Viz> (Showing off the good smile racing car which won the last GT 300 race)
16:30:15 <bay|AX|Viz> (Talking about Project DIVA and how the users put together the loading screens)
16:31:02 <bay|AX|Viz> (And the costumes)
16:32:17 <bay|AX|Viz> (Going over lots of collaborations on things such as creators on fashion brands, and tshirts)
16:38:51 <bay|AX|Viz> (I've confirmed with staff that Viz will be starting after the Miku panel, it started really late. Like at like 3:50 or so.)
16:39:27 <bay|AX|Viz> (Also, AX clears all, even press out of the room between panels, only to let them back in again first (??????) )
16:44:20 <bay|AX|Viz> (AX clears all out of the room between panels, even press... basically the press walk in a cricle out of the room and back in again.. go figure -_-)
16:44:17 <bay|AX|Viz> (At NYAF when they went is when they first begin to see how popular it had become overseas)
16:44:18 <bay|AX|Viz> (It made TV news around the world as well)

16:46:21 <bay|AX|Viz> (Now talking about append versions)

16:52:25 <bay|AX|Viz> Thank you very much
