Hello Shane.  And thanks Ludo and David for handling this; I had missed
this response yesterday.

As the others have already said we should use some free software program

However if possible I'd like to restrict that to the final Q&A part
only; in my experience such software tends to be shaky, and I'm even
having some problems with the network connection quality at the venue (I
work there a couple days per week).

We have another speaker in a similar situation, and I think the same
solution can work for you: why not pre-recording a talk?  It can be a
commented screencast, you speaking at a blackboard, slides with your
voiceover, or any combination of these things.  Showing your video will
be easy for us: we'll use the same projector we have for presentation
slides, and loudspeakers.  That just *can't* fail.

You would be part of the audience (to keep the experience less
impersonal), and we can have a live audio or audio/video Q&A session
with you at the end.

We can attempt a live remote presentation as well if you want, but I'd
like to have at least a backup plan.

Would this be OK for you, Shane?  We can work out the details on
ghm-discuss -- other people will have useful feedback, too.  In any case
I'm adding your talk to the page.

I'm CC'ing address@hidden  Please subscribe to the list, using the

not bother the good hardworking Guile people with more distracting
followups :-).

Thanks, and welcome.
