General Assembly Webcast – 24 Nov 2007, 15h00

If you can’t attend the meeting, we invite you to participate in our first live webcast on the occasion of our extraordinary general assembly Saturday 24 Nov 2007 at 15h00. We’ll send you the password per email to be able to follow the live-stream.

This is a first so expect some bugs and glitches. UStream allows also a chat functionality as well as the possibility to launch a quick poll and to record the event. If the chat feature doesn’t work, we’ll set up a parallel chat conference on Skype (or something similar) and we’ll advertise the decision. You can either watch the video stream here on the blog or directly there at UStream http://ustream.tv/channel/general-assembly.

In case you need quick support on Saturday, please call or send an SMS to +176 23 94 14 78.

In case you are interested:

  • Skype Video currently offers only a one-to-one video conference, so the video feature does not work for conferences.
  • Gizmo‘s video features are currently only available in a Windows Beta
  • Anyway a videoconference is more tricky than most people think, so we decided to broadcast the event and allow participation via chat.
  • Alternatives would have been tokbox.com/meebo.com and the best quality and coolest choice would have been veodia.com/veodia.tv, but our (old) Apple Notebooks (PowerPC) don’t meet the system requirements, also viewers need to have the quicktime browser plug-in installed. UStream is the simple, offers some great collaboration and conference tools and… works with wordpress.com. There you are.
