My initial reaction is why waste the AG for this . . . if you're going to
record them, you could use other technology that is commercially available
at a very low cost--I can't think of the names of the products, but
Microsoft has one, etc. The AG is really designed for live, interactive
collaboration and discourse.
When is your annual seminar in bioinformatics? How important is this
seminar to Idaho? Would it be beneficial to expand your coverage? Perhaps
we could send someone to help you set up your AG in the auditorium . .
. or loan you the Kentucky portable AG for this purpose so you could
multicast your seminar via the AG? You might want to talk with Marty in
North Dakota, they have presented two virtual bioinformatics and genomics
conferences. Let's talk about this.
