probably. we will start with #lad on irc.freenode.org, and create 
ad-hoc channels for the three venues. additionally, chat ops and 
stream relay ops will internally communicate via another channel.

those rooms will be listed on a yet-to-be-written website that will 
also list the stream and webcam relays as well as provide links to 
papers and slides.
