The March 2010 meeting of Washington DC Linux user group will take place
on Wednesday, March 17 at 7pm.
Eric Rzewnicki will talk about Conference Video. Video recordings and
live internet streams of a growing number of Linux and Free Software
conferences around the world are being produced by teams of volunteers
using largely donated resources and Free Software running on Linux. This
talk discusses the hardware and software used for a variety of the
productions in which Eric has participated. The software covered
includes dvswitch and tools from xiph.org. Challenges and experiences
with regard to quality sound, lighting, volunteer organization and
workflow management will also be touched upon.
The meeting location is our usual 2025 M street, NW in downtown DC.
There will be signs in front of the building. The location is within 3
nearby Metro stops, both on the red (Dupont, Farragut North) and
blue/orange (Farragut West, Foggy Bottom [a bit of a hike]) lines.
Parking in the area is available for approximately $5; there's even
parking in the building itself. Street parking requires feeding the
meters until late in the evening. There's a parking lot at 23rd St.
between M and L that is not enforced after 7pm (people have successfully
parked there for years---no one we know was ticketed or towed yet, but
it could happen).
The meeting dates for 2010 are Apr 21, May 19, Jun 16, Jul 21, Aug 18,
Sep 15, Oct 20, Nov 17, and Dec 15.
