Dont want to steal any attention from the main talk though where you will see a more professional setup i'm sure
Will be there on Saturday only.
There have been no volunteers to set up and run a video/audio production feed for streaming, but I do hope to stream the proceedings using best efforts with a (good) webcam.
We will be looking for volunteers to help with video/audio production and streaming at future events (CAT 20 for example) - please think about this as these things do not happen by magic!
Sorry - you are correct, I did not ask. It was a last minute decision on my part to provide very basic streaming at this Mini-convention as there had been a lot of requests for the previous 2 mini-conventions to be streamed.
We would very much appreciate your help for CAT 20 which will be a full production.
