Hi all,

Just a quick update:

We had a great inaugural event last week. Edited HD video here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUGr_Z04SKs and speaker links:
http://www.meetup.com/Cyberspectrum/pages/Meetup_%231_%28Nov_2014%29_Links/

It even made Hackaday yesterday:

The lineup for next month is complete:
http://www.meetup.com/Cyberspectrum/events/218737038/ and looks pretty
exciting!

I live streamed the event last week, and had over 20 viewers even though I
had only tweeted it a little while before the beginning of the show. I
would very much like to do this again for next month's show. Could someone
please tell me whether I'll be able to plug my stream encoder laptop via
Ethernet cable into the network there, and what sort of upstream bandwidth
I could expect (so I can config the encoder)?

Many thanks,
Balint
