Whether we can or not is TBD. I would greatly appreciate suggestions for services, software, etc. I think it'd be a very neat way to supplement a meatspace conference, so that people who can't attend in person can still participate. At LCC2 we had both a live audio webcast and IRC chat, but videoconferencing would be better if possible. Timezones are of course always an issue, but you can expect that it'll probably be 9-5 wherever it is; that's currently most likely EST. Subideal for you Europeans, but hey, staying up late one weekend isn't so bad for a cost of cross-Atlantic admission eh? ;-)

Alex is the person to contact for the LCC1 vids; see the link he gave. LCC2 vids are all ripped now and undergoing editing. Will hopefully be released together with LCC1 vids and (long!) LCC1 interviews I did that haven't been released at all yet (w/ Sally Caves, John Clifford, Matt Pearson, David Peterson, & Sylvia Sotomayor).

All on the website, under 'supplements'. Hopefully we may be publishing a proceedings (eventually...), but that's pending various things getting worked out first.

That too is possible. I'd been considering making another group buy... might as well do it. :) See new post. - Sai
