We have posted an initial proposal for investigation of
teleconferencing systems for multicast of GAs to occupytechnology.

http://occupytechnology.org/content/initial-proposal-teleconferencing-ga-multicast

The goal is to most cheaply / efficiently provide widest possible,
highest quality access to real-time GA proceedings for the "curious"
and off-site folks in solidarity. It has ancillary benefits like
providing for recording/remote transcription / user feedback.

We consider this an alternative to technically flawed and expensive
(to many 99%) "internet radio" and video streaming options, and hope
you will consider this as a more resource-friendly option.

Upshot:
- We are investigating some options for sourcing & systems design
- We will propose some specific implementations based on test vendors
- We are willing to coordinate and fund trials, maybe even production
systems
- We don't necessarily need GA participation or approval for this,
just coordination on the ground to max reach;.

But feedback from active GA participants and those familiar with
diverse field constraints would be very helpful, for utility's sake
maybe we drive that to the OccupyTech forums:
