Comment on "Announcing NSCoder Night"
by Scott Stevenson — Oct 24
@Steve Weller: Is the bandwidth good enough for iChat? If it is you could publish one iChat address for triage and then help remotely those who cannot attend. A good work-out for iChat theater as well.

Personally, I don't think this is a good venue for realtime video or anything like that. It's at a coffee shop, so we may be spread against many non-contiguous tables, lots of background noise, etc.

In any case, the whole point of both NSCoder Night and CocoaHeads really is to be there in in real life -- to encourage you to get out from behind your cube and/or home office (if you are able) and meet other people doing the same sort of work. If distance is an issue, I'd say that's a cue to startup a local chapter.

I do realize some people are not physically able to be there, and it would be nice to have a solution for that as well. But it would be nice to do it in a way that doesn't eliminate the entire "get out of the office" element.

This is just my opinion, though. Chris may feel differently.
