Webcast & Meeting in St. Louis Tonight

Tonight is the first quarterly meeting of the Gateway Autodesk Users Group for 2009!

When: 18th February- Wednesday - from 6 to 8:30 pm
Where: Clayco, Inc., 2199 Innerbelt Business Center Drive, St. Louis, Missouri 63114. (google map)
What: "BIM as a communication, coordination and analysis tool using Revit MEP, Greenbuilding Studio, Ecotech, Navisworks" by Jason Steele, Autodesk
What else: Pizza and Drinks – sponsored by Seiler Instrument

If you *can't* make it in person (although we'd really love you to stop by and bring a friend, and don't worry about being stuck in traffic, we'll happily accept latecomers!) I will be setting up a Webcast! This is my first one, so I hope the sound and video are going to be sufficient for the space (I'm showing up early so I can tweak if necessary).
If you can catch the webcast live, I'll be monitoring the chat window for questions and will try to relay them to the presenter as appropriate. If you can't catch it live, I'll be recording it and you can access it through the same link as the live webcast.

Great idea Webcasting your meetings. How did it work out for you?

Thanks, Brian.

I got the idea because my girlfriend in Chicago (who is really environmentally conscious and using Revit MEP) wanted to come, but, couldn't... and I recalled Mark Kiker doing a live broadcast from the AUGI Booth last year, so I asked him about it.

I'll post the video for everyone after the presenters have reviewed it.

The sound was great (but, I have a really good mic). The video wasn't as great. I was likely a combo of a cheap-ish camera and the small size of the video allowed through this service. You could see the folks, but, whenever there was white on the projection screen, it looked like a huge glare instead of, say, the Revit interface.
