[Community-Discuss] How good was Afrinic-27 ?

Actually, it is customary at ARIN meetings to give a long pause towards the end of each discussion asking for any remote participants.

It feels awkward in the room, but it does mean that the 30 second delay doesn’t create the problem you describe.

There were only two or three others logged remotely into the chat room, which I found disappointing. I guess other remote people may have just silently watched the stream. Anyway, the system worked well and the Scribing was an excellent addition. My remote screen was delayed by about 30 seconds - which meant often something had completed before one could even comment - little that AFRINIC could do anything about. Perhaps the AFRINIC staff representing remote participants could be allowed a place or two forwards in any question queues to compensate?
