Perhaps. We have to focus on the local timetable, and work off that -
remembering not to confuse and lose our attendees with 'too much tech'
distraction. So we'll see how we go.
Having thought live reporting through a bit further, what we can do for
most of our 8-hour lab session (4 on 16th, 4 on 17th) is to run a webcam
of our SFD gathering, and supply an ftp link for that (- unless SFI can
sort an ftp server & accounts for teams to use for pix stream up/down-
loading?) With the ftp link we'll supply our local cellph#, so that
anyone wanting an interview just needs to ring that for the audio feed -
and get interviewees in front of the webcam. That way, you can get your
clip directly from us - within the timebands we can go live. We'll
strive for something live on SFD nite too :) and keep an eye out for IRC.
PS Sorry to hear about Steve Irwin ~ be well with the crocodiles :-/
