Accessgrid and Real Time Comms

Jump to: navigation, search

Hi Wayne,

I'm putting this here as am taking it that Eric has got you on his watch list and it concerns both of you.

I've been talking to a one of my mates who is Eric's = on the accessgrid (AG) . If you don't know it, it's a way of tying together real rooms using virtual stuff.

Mentioned to Chris Willing (and he is) about using the AG to tie together Alexandria and the runners up (Capetown, Atlanta) for the Wikimania conference next year. It's a bit fatter than Skype and IRC but basically the same IP technologies. We're also talking , if we get as far as linking, about how we might be able to plug a few of the sessions into some public broadcasters like CBC at your end and ABC over here.

I thought I should mention this now as, with a bit of planning, and some better comms we should be able to run something rather special next year, if we have the time to plan (both agenda and link up).

It's getting on the night before Xmas and nothing will happen until after the silly season, so in the meantime hope you'll have a lovely white christmas, while we have a hot one. --Simonfj 05:23, 13 December 2007 (CET)
