EmacsConf 2019 is tomorrow. Even if a conference about Emacs doesn't seem like your thing, it's worth taking a look at how it's being put on.

It's 100% remote, all talks are live streamed, live transcriptions are posted to IRC. Audience questions are taken from a different IRC channel.

It's the conference version of "everybody dials in." I'd like to see more conferences put on this way.

@ieure A handful of glitches with the streams etc. so far, but I struggle with random people, have never got conversations going at conferences, and this Jitsi + irc thing really shows the way for a certain style of low carbon conference. I'm pro.
