Have you considered recording the weekly chats for a podcast? I know some people aren’t able to attend at times (including myself), and it would be nice to be able to watch later on during the week.
Just wondering. Thanks!
hi alex, there isn’t a good way to record 1+ hour of live video over ustream and sync to the chat text (irc/flash chat) – if and when there is an easy way to do this that doesn’t require hours and hours of post production and uploading gigs of files we’ll do it for sure!
