Need more bandwidth for Bar Camp LA!

Hi ChisSo go figure, CocoaDevHouse is streaming video and we’re having a hard time just watching it in real time owing to our meager 384Kbps connection at Bar Camp LA.

Fortunately we’re still a few hours off from the main event, but we’d love a hookup like we got from Etheric Networks at the last minute at the original Bar Camp.

Obviously if you’re able to help out — say, with an 80MBit directional wifi drop or some kind of new wave mesh network — we’d be eternally indebted to you. And yes, we’d probably blog about it a lot.

A lot.

So — if you know anyone, or know anyone who knows someone who once dated someone who ran over someone and lives in LA and has some sweet bandwidth to send our way, do let us know! Or at least blog this bad boy and get the word out. Let’s see if the internets really can connect ppl!

  1. I will attest to Tyler’s coding skills after spending 14 hours with him at CocoaDevHouse; but as for spelling, you be the judge.

  2. Have you tried viewing the streaming videos through some kind of proxy. You may find that using a web proxy like will take a load off and should carry a higher bandwidth speed. Not all of the web proxies will allow a “file download” as such, however there are those that do. Its definately worth a try.
