Tom, I vote/concensusify/whatever: Yes please on the icecast services ( This would look like something FLO can get behind and help get implemented in larger scale too. This can be a tool to support workgroup/ga meetings in general? Can FLO and IWG members please pause, take a look at ICECAST and offer wavey-hands up/down so this can get ratified as a "plan"?  Any blockers please explain thoroughly... why?

Maybe take the pressure off of tonight's meeting for live streaming since there is not already a solution in place? (unless somthing that works that is ready pops up).

Perhaps re-using the live google docs, some basic do's and dont's to keep it workable.  It self organized pretty well, if we spend a quick few minutes with a how to comment/add questions at end page for the folks online... the note thing again with a couple of in-meeting typists could work in a pinch until a better open solution is online?

Perhaps some guidance on how you want comment from online folks, I think the highlight text and right click for "comments" worked well in the interface.

Would USTREAM / Livestream work?

I could also set up an Icecast server (not tonight, but for the
future) on one of my Rackspace machines, and we can stream that using
Nicecast Studo from a laptop.
