  > For the World social forum held in Mumba=EF in january 2004, a new
  > interpretation tool is being developed by programmers, technicians and
  > artists from apo33 and interpreters from babels network. This tool
  > will be used for the first time in the 5 main WSF conference rooms (24
  > 000 persons) and aims at replacing in the future the existing
  > translation equipment currently rent during continental or world
  > social forum. The cost of this tool (and of the whole system called
  > NOMAD) is at least 75 % inferior to what is normally spent on basic
  > equipment, and tends to give a greater autonomy of the movement.
  >
  > This tool will also for the first time enable the debates and
  > translations to be archived and streamed so anybody can virtually
  > attend the meetings or listen to them afterwards.
  >
  > Regarding streaming, the idea is to have in India a main server
  > feeding several mirrors to which surfers can connect so to follow the
  > debates. The more mirrors we have, the wider the debates can be spred.
  > Technical implementation would mean to relay 1 to 2 Mb of streaming
  > flow from the 16th to the 21st, 10 to 12 hours each day.

  > If you are still interested in the process, please let us know so we

  > Don't hesitate to spread the information to whoever might wish to

  > For any question or further information, you can send us a mail at :
  > stream_trad at fse-esf.org , wsfsm at babels.org and info at apo33.org=20
