I was imagining a format where we could hack together on stuff, while also 
having someqpresentations.

I liked the format of the FSF for libreplanet, where they were able to 
livestream the talks. They used jitsi and something in icecat to send the 
stream, and had a m3u link that can be opened in vlc or mpv.

I was also imagining something more unconference-style, where we could have 
smaller discussion and working groups.
