Web: Anglican Church of Canada General Synod, 4 – 11 July, 2001
We're happy to note this news from the Anglican Church of Canada: 'Web surfers anywhere in the world will be able to see on their computer monitors exactly what synod delegates are seeing on the screen of the large plenary hall, the site for most of the business of synod. The website feed will be live, for the duration of the week-long synod, from July 4-11, and will consist of raw footage, without editing. From the General Synod web site click an icon to access the live feed.' You'll need RealPlayer software, a free download available at the website. There seems to be an administrative limit of 100 people at a time watching it, so you might not get in.
