>From my perspective we're happy to put in place anything that we can
reasonably do, and that will increase participation. Bear in mind that we
don't have massive amounts of money or people - the costs of the event as
it stands is just about covered by the sponsors we have, and I'm putting
most of the logistics together ( with help from Tom Fifield and a few
others ) as well as doing my day job.

We've already had a very kind additional offer of infrastructure help ( in
kit, bodies, connectivity etc ) from Canonical, if we want to put in place
stuff to enable remote participation in terms of audio streaming, IRC etc.
etc. If only we had some OpenStack public cloud then it would be trivial to
spin up whatever servers we might need to support that .... ;)

It would probably be helpful to have some gauge on how many people are
interested in remote participation before we do anything in terms of
enabling that in a more extensive way than etherpads - not sure the best
way to get that number, any ideas ?
