Yes! In the past I have helped a few different projects set up a way to do
a hangout that live streams to youtube so people can join the conversation
actively or passively depending on their involvement. I actually helped
write a blog post about it as well. Cinder has been doing it for a few
years now and Neutron started doing the same at the PTG in Denver. Monasca
just got started live streaming in Dublin.
If there are any teams reading this that want help getting things set up
for next time I would be happy to help. Just let me know and I can walk you
through the process.
Also in the past, the Foundation has provided bluetooth speaker/microphones
to those that needed them to help with virtualization for remote attendees.
Perhaps that is something we could bring back.
Hope this helps!
