Should there be 3 seperate irc rooms then?  One for each concurrent lecture?

hi everyone!

as you will certainly have heard, we are getting closer to the 2nd 
linux audio conference at zkm (http://www.zkm.de/lad).

as you might also have heard, we will have live streams of all talks 
and lectures in ogg format for those who can't make it there in person.

last year, we had an irc "feedback channel", meaning i would sit in 
the lecture room with a notebook, answer questions from people who 
were listening to the stream and relay their questions to the 
audience if necessary. i want to do the same this year.

problem is: there are three lecture rooms now.
so i'm looking for a couple of people who'd be willing to help out.

specifically, i need people who

* are at the conference :) preferably the whole time
* bring their own laptop with working sound output and headphones
* have some experience with networking
* have or can operate a webcam on their machine and are willing to 
install xawtv
* like to chat

your tasks will be:

* to attend talks
* to have an irc window open and answer and relay questions
* to set up a webcam that will provide the listeners with stills so 
that they'll know which slide is up atm etc.
* to monitor the outgoing stream and to ping the relays from time to 

the more helpers, the less work for all of us. last year, it has 
been great fun, although chatting, monitoring (with some 5 seconds 
lag) and listening at the same time can make your head spin in funny 

please cc: me privately on any replies. thanks.
