I'm looking for some volunteers to make a trial run at virtual lightning talks. This is an idea that came to me during Code4Lib earlier this month -- use a webinar tool to replicate the environment of the conference lightning talks. The outline of the concept is at:
LYRASIS has a subscription to a 100-seat instance of Centra Saba that we can try. It is Java-based with claimed support for sharing desktops under Mac, Linux and Windows. I'd like to test that support to see if it can be used. So I'm looking for a half dozen volunteers to sign into a test room on Wednesday at 2pm.
Please let me know if you can help. Read the presenter guidelines at the URL above to make sure you have the minimum requirements and for links to install the webinar client software. The URL to the trial run space is http://tinyurl.com/5vzd8st and it will be active on Wednesday at 2pm.
