Finally got on to the site. Disappointed to see this comment:

Our sincerest apologies. Thank you to those of you who were able to get in. There were many more who did not. Therefore, we will be rescheduling and sending an email announcement shortly.

Not sure that it's cancelled, Roy, just that not everyone was able to get on. At least that's what appears to have happened. It's actually not clear.

I posted a comment to the message window (and it confirmed sending) but it hasn't been posted in the list. I said how disappointed I was and asked if the presentation materials would be available today. I suspect they have been inundated with such messages and have switched the facility off.

I'm not going to gamble with it working next time (I lost 3 working hours today to get home to watch this) so I'll wait for the materials to be made available.

EDIT: Hmmm . . . on re-reading the apology message it does appear that they are apologising to EVERYONE, so maybe it was cancelled.

As a working webcaster, I can tell you this stuff ain't easy. There's a whole bunch of things that need to work right on multiple servers of different types and a streaming content delivery network to pull off a large-scale live webcast. Then there's the origination and live encoding of content... it's complex, indeed!

Regarding the allure of live... I suspect Ian and Grazie won't be going far out of their way to see the next live SCS event. On the internet, people are used to getting the information they want *when* they want it. So, an on-demand archive of the webcast will be preferred by many viewers.

Having said all that, if I'd produced this webcast on behalf of a client, I'd be fired, I'd lose the client. That's why I test, test, test, and test again prior to any live webcast!

Word to the wise - you have one chance to impress your audience and build credibility and a following in a live webcast.
