You can also use the same interface as remotees, even if you're physically at an event - for instance, if you're sitting in the room for one talk but are interested in what's happening with another, you're a "remotee" for that session and should follow the [[FUDCon_Live#If_you.27re_remote|instructions for remote participants]].

# An IRC channel for each track/room of the event
* on what online channels

# A location to view streaming video/audio for each track/room of the event

The IRC channel will also be displayed on a projector thrown on the side wall of the physical presentation room, so anything you type in the IRC channel will be visible for all attendees in the room to see.

coarse points - general results from the survey itself
 
it seems alot of people were aware of fudcon live, but did not necessarily participate
 
more than a quarter of surveyees were not aware of fudcon live
 
fudcon live only hindered five people, i'm curious why
 
docs were good, but not excellent
 
most people think the wiki is the best distribution center
 
people are not hot for google wave
 
- probably because it is non-free
 
- that's not true though, but it's not fully understood yet either
 
- well, the client is not open, true
 
gobby got some good attention
 
whiteboarding too
 
audio/video streaming needed, and whoever said that about the CCC guys (probably andreas thienemann) is 100% correct
 
 
 
and that puking pony could very well have been me, i did have a horrible cold after fudcon
 
 
 
 
 
fine points - details that are otherwise missed but also important
 
 
 
none identified yet
 
 
 
 
 
TODO:
 
  1.  Decide what our goals are - what do wew want out of fudcon live in the future
 
  2. Decide on the results we should see on the following survey - translate the above into quantifiable goals
 
  3. Identify changes and the expected results - put your thinking caps on!
 
  4. After the next event or two, see if we've made improvement - include the results in the previous half of this doc so the next person who does this isn't working on a clean slate

FUDCon Live is a process for capturing FUDCon content and relaying it to remote participants, either through IRC, AV streaming, or other means.

If you're organizing the event

Overall event organizers (for instance, the planning team for a FUDCon) should coordinate with the FUDCon Live planners; this page is so you know what this "FUDCon Live" thing you'll be interfacing with is all about.

If you're organizing FUDCon Live for the event

Organizers of a FUDCon Live should look at the FUDCon Live organization process for the things they need to do.

If you're physically at the event

If you're at an event with a FUDCon Live presence, please consider volunteering to transcribe one or more sessions. Instructions are available at FUDCon:How To Transcribe a Session, and the FUDCon and FUDCon Live coordinators for your event will point you to more specific instructions (if they don't, ask them to!)

You can also use the same interface as remotees, even if you're physically at an event - for instance, if you're sitting in the room for one talk but are interested in what's happening with another, you're a "remotee" for that session and should follow the instructions for remote participants.

If you're remote

If you're a remote participant for an event that you know has a FUDCon Live presence, refer to the FUDCon Live page for that event for specific participation instructions.

Generally, remote participation consists of the following:

  1. A schedule grid (typically on the event's wiki) of the Barcamp sessions that will be running to the event
  2. An IRC channel for each track/room of the event
  3. A location to view streaming video/audio for each track/room of the event

The IRC channel will also be displayed on a projector thrown on the side wall of the physical presentation room, so anything you type in the IRC channel will be visible for all attendees in the room to see.
