Essay
Most of the planet will not be attending this meeting in person, so we would like to use the web – and the social web – to get inside the doors, educate ourselves, find answers to our questions and perhaps collaborate.

Critical events need to do the best job possible when it comes to being public-facing. Yes, we want to have access to livestreaming video – the official proceedings and the in-the-corridors chats that could be streamed via Periscope and FacebookLive.
