The event went very well, from the point of view of someone who was
in the room. George Bray's "Technical Wrap Up" on how the video
streaming was done is at: <http://dld.anu.edu.au/public-sphere>.
I have made some suggestions for improvements, including making the
talks slightly longer, varying the format between presentations and
using something like the DimDim Web conference software:

Sorry, it my ancient copy of Eudora. I pasted from my blog and seem
to have lost the line breaks in the process. During a "live" event it
is difficult to check formatting (usually I wait 12 hours and edit
each of these Link postings three times).
While on the topic of technology for these events, I was wondering if
anyone had experience of using DimDim
It is one of those web conference systems, which provides audio,
video, chat, slide sharing and the like. It seemed a little more open
and less resource intensive than most. But I have not used it for a real event.
ps: George's report includes a photo of my Akbil electronic token
from the Istanbul public transport system. But that is another story. ;-)
