Online Conference between us and Yorkshire

On Sunday we prepared for the conference in the evening. We planned to use Skype to link to a group who assembled in the Sagar Street Gallery in Castleford. Jake would deal with the computing there, and I set up the laptop here. There were some problems initially, but we got it working, even with video. For a while we used also the online conference system DimDim. Our group showed some of the poems and paintings that had been created, and we presented the results of the interviews. We had been a bit sceptical before, as the mobile internet connection appeared not to support the require bandwidth. But in the end it worked out fine.
