@KirstieJane Will all the sessions be streamed live?

Hi @WinnieMakokha - I don't think they will....
@arlissc might be able to correct me there...but I don't think we're streaming sessions in the Open Science space at MozFest

Hi @WinnieMakokha - Kirstie is correct - some floors may be streaming some of their sessions but Open Science is not.

Can someone remind me if learning labs will have projectors?

Hi Sam - all learning labs will have screens - they might not all be projectors but you'll be able to show something to your participants for sure :smile:

Dear @KirstieJane thanks a bunch for your help so far. (1) To followup with one of the earlier questions today, is there a way to request a projector for my session #480? (basically anyway for me to show what's on my computer to participants) It is apparently floor 9 room 902. (2) Will there be big pieces of paper for people to write on? (3) I know this was asked before and know that we should have a backup plan, but can I reasonably expect there to be internet access for everyone?

Hi @penyuan - all the sessions will have a screen
you're all set for showing your computer to your session participants :smile:
I'm sure we'll be able to find a few big pieces of paper. If you need lots and lots of very large paper then send me an email with more details. But we'll have pens and paper and sticky notes and things for you to write on
Yes - you can reasonably expect there to be internet access....for you. But I don't think you can expect everyone in your session to be able to connect or to have their own device.
I hope that helps :smile:
Hey @/all - I'm about to go into my Book Club (we're reading Frankenstein this month) and I'll be offline

Gonna spam y'all with a few questions. First, is anyone interested in trading practice sessions (I serve as a practice audience for your talk, then you do so for mine)?
