Gun Blogger Rendezvous Simulcast

A few people have requested that I simulcast the GBR. I think I can probably do this, since I plan to take my MacBook. It appears that Google Talk can handle AV if I use iChat. If anyone wants to give it a try, I’ve set up a GTalk UserID snowflakesinhell. The webcam is on, and we can give it a try.

Appearances can be deceiving. Google Talk can only do it with a special plug-in. I’m giving Skype a try. My ID there is SnowflakesInHell. Feel free to connect if you’d like to help me test out whether this will work for GBR.

UPDATE: Skype seems to work pretty well for one on one, but not so well for broadcasting.  Given that Kevin says wireless coverage at Circus Circus is spotty, I’ll keep looking, but will keep Skype in mind.

    I’ve added you, but you need to verify before I can see that you’re on.

    On Skype on GMail?

    Hopefully you have Verizon wireless. The hotel’s wireless service is less than stellar, especially in the hospitality area where we congregate. There is no hardwire hookup available. US Citizen used his Verizon card to good effect last year, however.

    What means “less than stellar?” :)

    I admit, it cracks me up that a blogger event is held at a location with crappy wifi.

    I actualy have Skype downloaded onto my computer, where it has been for about a month now. I got it to talk to friends, but the day after they had a majr virus attack. They are still working on it, so I haven’t got to use it yet.

    I’ll be running a test period tonight as well. A post will be forthcoming.

    Perhaps it should all be put on YouTube.

    “LiveTube” or “LiveTubing”.

    Maybe you can script the whole process.
