Slightly different, but in the same vein as recording talks, we setup a 
live feed using an Axis 205 webcam at the Syracuse Innovators Guild. You 
can check it out here


I'm curious as to the hackerspace community's thoughts on live feeds. 
Part of me says its a cool feature, but part of me says its a bit too 
invasive. Obviously we're recording the video for a limited time for 
security purposes, but not sure if we want to keep this video stream 
public. Thoughts?
