i'm willing to take care of the streaming like last year. this time, i'll
try to provide a webcam as well, but i'm not yet sure about streaming
video. but a picture every 15 secs or so should be possible. ;)
my plan is to have an ogg stream of the talks and the concerts, an irc
talkback channel, a website with the presentation material for download
and a crude webcam to give you an idea which slide the presenter is
talking about atm.

work to set up a relay network for streaming will begin by the end of
february, i've got a couple other things to do atm.

[call for mirrors]

if you have a host with good internet connection and are willing to donate
some bandwidth, please contact me off-list. either you provide an icecast2
server yourself, or else i will need shell access to build one (though not
root). the distribution needs to be recent, or else building icecast2 is
for the webcam, we'll need a couple http servers as well.
i thought about round-robin dns, but a friend just pointed out a master
server with some php code that will produce a different link each time it
is called is probably easier.
so all you have to do is pull an image every couple seconds, make it
available somewhere and send me the url.
