Re: [PLUG] COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19)

RTMP with VLC, and use IRC for interaction)

A bit overpowered for our use, but also:

and Moodle has a livestreaming plugin (I've never used it, YMMV)

There's of course also Twitch, but I think it'd be cooler if we self-hosted.

Relatedly, I wish I had a presentation put together already on
telecommuting since I've been doing it for 9 or 10 years now, but here's
a link dump: (for you company
