ParticipationCamp: Just like being there

I wanted to attend ParticipationCamp in New York. Apparently I can. From Montreal. They have live video feed with great quality:

Of course social reporters can use add the #PCamp09 tag to their tweets, which are aggregated on front page of their website.

Great use of social media and attention to virtual participants: livestreaming video, twitter, skype. And of course great topic:

Democracy is a game in which we all make the rules. How do we make this serious game more inclusive, more fair, and more fun? Participation Camp will provide the spark for an explosion of sharing, experimentation, and collaboration around this question. Participants may attend a wide range of physical and virtual presentations (or deliver one themselves), compete in a conference-wide participation game, or roll up their sleeves in a hands-on workshop.
