Our community welcomes in every time zone to the New Year in this annual event.
The Hacker Public Radio LIVE New Year's Eve event will be streamed live from noon to midnight EST This Saturday December 31st. That's UTC 2011, Dec 31, 1700 hours to 2012, Jan 01, 0500 hours.
All HPR contributors and listeners are welcome to call in via mumble and discuss their favorite HPR shows and topics of 2011, or bring a topic that you think would help us to have a good show. We'll be taking calls up to the limit of the server. We'll be streaming the whole thing, as well as distilling it down to one or more podcasts for the rss feed.
Whether you've contributed to HPR or not, please consider calling in and helping us to make this a great HPR community event.
For callers, there will be a seperate room to test your setup before jumping in the live room just to avoid doing on air mic checks. Please check your sound there before jumping into the main room. Please set compression to the 31.8Kb/s speex codec for compatibility (NOT the CELT codec), and use push to talk.
Stream Address: Mirrors to be announced. We have at least one high bandwidth offer so far.
