Always good to know!  :-)  At the least, we could do a delayed 
broadcast, where I upload to the server and then it doesn't start 
streaming until half way through the meeting, ya know?  Then the rtt 
isn't as important.  I mean, it would be awesome to be able to do a live 
Q&A from afar, but certainly not necessary.  ;-)

Once we get the wireless connection perfected at Symantec/Vertias, then 
we can really start to look into some of these options.  The public 
wireless connection for the group is the first major step forward that 
SVLUG is taking in terms of technology at the meetings, so I think baby 
steps is a good way to go for now.  Don't want to throw too much too 
quickly, or else we may not have the resources to maintain the system.  
It's always good to keep these things in mind and work out the details 
ahead of time, though!
