Flock IRC Channels
Here’s the lineup of IRC channels we created on irc.freenode.net for remote attendees to follow along. You may want to configure them in your IRC client now to make your remote attendance easier. I’ve linked each channel name up to the freenode web client just in case it’s helpful.
If you’re using xchat / hexchat and just want to copy/paste the full list in a format xchat will take to allow you to auto-join, here you go:
Remember, the #fedora-flock channel is for general discussion / updates / questions about the Flock conference. The room-specific channels are for live transcription (if available) of the talks in the rooms as well as discussion about the talk as it proceeds.

So I previously posted a little call for requests for talks you’d like transcribed and for help getting talks transcribed, etc. So far I’ve only gotten one talk transcription request (Evolution of a Linux Distribution and its Ecosystem) and no other transcription volunteers yet.
So if you’d like a particular talk transcribed (especially if you’re a remotee!) please let me know… and if you can transcribe let me know as well. 🙂 I added a ‘Transcriber’ column to the Flock Volunteer page so you can sign up there as well and check out which talks need coverage.
Also, if you just sort of spur-of-the-moment end up in a talk or watching a talk stream and decide you’d like to try your hand at transcribing it – please do it, it doesn’t matter if you signed up to or not. I might end up transcribing more than I signed up for depending on how busy things are around my house at the time!
