Subject: Volunteers Needed For AAPT Committee on Video Streaming


Dear Colleagues,

I have just returned from the October AAPT Board Meeting where I was
tasked to come up with volunteers willing to serve on an Ad-Hoc
Committee on Video Streaming Issues for AAPT Meetings and Events. The
charge of the committee will be to investigate feasibility of video
streaming and to suggest guidelines and policies for its use. Items to
consider are online video delivery of AAPT workshops and events, like
what PIRA has committed to do with the Demonstration Workshop in Omaha
in July 2011, to simple video recording of AAPT sessions for later
delivery through the web. I see this as an area where PIRA can take the
lead in helping to determine how AAPT conducts future meetings. I
strongly encourage anyone who is planning on working on the video issues
for the summer lecture demo workshop to get involved.

Enjoy entropy. -Steve
