BJS Newsreel — Streaming Media for the upcoming Conference this Friday/Saturday

February 10th, 2011 Post by

NOTE: Updated information available here.


We felt with the number of people asking for conferences closer to where they are that it would be useful to our membership to have live audio streaming of the conference for those too far away to attend themselves.

We will stream the Friday evening banquet, but to listen to the Saturday presentations we ask for a $5 donation. The streaming with be 64kbs MP3 audio, and we’ll make it available on our website.

To help give us an idea of how many might listen live, please comment here or send us an email if you are going to plan on listening during the event.

It will still take us a few days to get the audios online after the conference.

Rules for comments on this site:

Engage the contents and substance of the post. Rabbit trails and side issues do not help the discussion of the topics.  Our authors work hard to write these articles and it is a disservice to them to distract from the topic at hand.  If you have a topic you think is important to have an article or discussion on, we invite you to submit a request through the "Ask a Pastor" link or submit a guest article.

Provide a valid email address. If you’re unwilling to do this, we are unwilling to let you comment.

Provide at least your first name. Please try to come up with a unique name; if you have a common name add something to it so you aren't confused with another user. We have several "john"'s already for example.  If you have a good reason to use a fake name, please do so but realize that the administrators of the site expect a valid email address and also reserve the right to ask you for your name privately at any time.

If you post as more than one person from the same IP address, we’ll block that address.

Do not engage in ad hominem arguments. We will delete such comments, and will not be obligated to respond to any complaints (public or private ones) about deleting your comments.

Interaction between people leaving comments ought to reflect Christian virtue, interaction that is gracious and respectful, not judging motives.  If error is to be rebuked, evidence of the error ought to be provided.

We reserve the right to identify and deal with trollish behavior as we see fit and without apology.  This may include warnings (public or private ones) or banning.

    Sign me up … I’ve been watching for this for a while now. Audio is great and would request that a move to stream both audio and video be considered in the future.

    I wouldn’t be able to listen live, but if they could be made available for download/podcast… :)

    What, no video for future playback? What will the brothers do at our next circuit meeting? :)

    Yes, the Lutheran Catechetical Society plans to be there and record the sessions and Service. DVDs should be ready within a few weeks. (Five”ish” hours of material will take a bit of time to edit and burn.) Watch for an announcement on BJS re: availability.

    Yes, please count me in to watch/listen.

    Looking forward to recordings….
