I'm thinking about organizing a small virtual Camp Mustache, for forum members to connect a bit better and get to know each other, and learn some Mustachian things from those willing to teach.
It won't have the best parts of Camp Mustache (the hanging out and impromptu hallway chats), but parts of it can be replicated; enough that it could be worth doing despite the drawbacks, IMO, because of the big benefit: allowing people who can't travel to participate.
1) Is this something people would be interested in once kinks are worked out?
2) Is there anyone willing to participate in beta runs, understanding it will be awkward and filled with technology problems?
3) Suggestions for the technology? Ideally looking for two different products (hopefully free):
A) something that would allow ~5-6 people to video chat split screen at a time, and
B) Something that would allow a main "speaker" to present to a group of 20-50 (ala a webcast/webinar), with the 20-50 people being able to ask questions (via a text-chat, and/or individually one at a time via audio).
I have a few ideas for this based on the three Camp Mustache Seattle events we've been to, and how CMSeattle 4 and Camp Mustache Canada are shaping up, but before I get into that, the first thing I wanted to do is broach the idea for interest, and see about technology thoughts.
(Time zone stuff will obviously be an issue, but we'll work through that.)
