Re: Enabling remote participation at Folsom Design Summit


I'm still loooking for *hardware* to make this happen. 

Lets try to make this more sexy and see where to cook hackers are: what
if we buy a few beaglebone boards ($89 each) and spend a weekend hacking
a streaming server on them? 

The boards are cheap enough and should have enough power to acquire
audio, convert it to mp4/h264 using their hardware and send the stream
over to a public icecast server. As with many other things, the software
is already out there, it needs hammering, put it together, testing and
praying it works at the summit.

Any volunteer?

Or any other option? Cheap desktops would work too: I wouldn't refuse
Dell or HP to ship 6 of their smallest machines either :)

let me know, please.
