        • Ben: how to moderate?

          • Diego: don’t expect unexpected amt of ppl

    • budget for videoconferencing
      • max USD 5,000 for all of event infra spend (videoconferencing is part of this)
  • Meet.coop

This sounds interesting, I looked at some Collective68 web pages last night after someone from their organisation followed the Webarchitects Twitter account, they might well be interested in the librehosters network.

Let us know how the event went? (I assume it is over now?)

The Open Publishing Festival is over, but this call is about an upcoming event that Diego and a couple others in the Dat community are planning for July 30.

The Open Publishing Festival has an interesting setup, sessions on the agenda are all on different platforms. It looks like the event provides a BBB server on cloud68, but there are sessions that run on Jitsi, Zoom, even Twitter. It may be a good path for OPEN 2020 as well, as it doesn’t singularly fail on a single platform.

For a session that I attended that was on the cloud68 BBB, it was really nice. 20 people listening, two presenters on video screen sharing and with slides, well moderated with Q&A.
