George, someone on Twitter thought that having to install software was  
a usability FAIL, which triggered this thought...

If you're using Wirecast, then the video presents as a Quicktime  
source within your OS X streaming server. This means you can the use a  
host like Ustream http://ustream.tv or Mogulus http://mogulus.com to  
stream it out using their embeddable Flash players with integrated  
chat (which in the case of Ustream is IRC under the hood). Indeed, the  
latest version of Wirecast will connect directly to Ustream, IIRC.

Since both Windows and Macs come with Flash pre-installed in the  
default browser, this removes that issue -- and also adds a recordable  
discussion channel, because you can use any IRC client to log the chat.

One potential downside is that on the "free" services there's  
advertising, which may not suit ANU's or Senator Lundy's needs to  
appear independent. Still... experiments n'all.
