@xldrkp Hi! I'm going to be connecting virtually with this conference tomorrow at 5:45 Hamburg time! See here: virtuallyconnecting.org/blog/2

@chendricks Cool! I've been invited for the first session today at 16:15.

Never did that kind of virtually connecting before. Looking forward to it.

@xldrkp I couldn't make the first session--too early in the morning in my time zone. How did it go? I could only stay for a short time in the later session.

@chendricks I liked the experience a lot. It's a really good idea to virtually connect this way.

I would like to see VC moving to another video tool for conferencing that is not Google. Might jitsi.org/ be an alternative?

@xldrkp I know there has been some discussion in the community about the platform but I haven't been part of that discussion yet. I know that the ability to both live stream and record is important, along with being easy to set up and use. And free--we are a bunch of volunteers. Jitsi looks possibly promising, but perhaps a bit complicated for a newbie to set up? Seems like a lot of tools & I don't know which to use.

@chendricks I see. I will check if Jitsi fulfills the requirements you mention.
