Wait, are we talking about setting up a two-way communication bridge,
or just streaming "out" from Noisebridge?

And while we're on the topic: I would have a HUGE problem with video
communication in this context.  It's overkill for the purpose of
extending the meeting to those who can't physically be present, and
it's a safety/privacy hazard.  (References gladly provided upon
request.)
