The DMCA conference streaming seems to use Silverlight
Authored by: Tkilgore on Saturday, March 16 2013 @ 11:14 AM EDT
They, meaning the conference organizers, might be willing but unable.

The Law School is not the university's IT department. The IT department might be
one of those Microsoft Only setups that lots of institutions of higher ed. have
at this point. The only thing which has thus far saved my institution from the
Microsoft Only "solution" is that there were just too many users of
other operating systems from the very beginning of computer use around here. We
have had administrators who have itched and wanted to do the Microsoft Only
trip, but they never got what they wanted. Too much push-back.

So, if U. Santa Clara is a Microsoft Only shop, the conference organizers can do
nothing about that save to be embarrassed.

Of course, when people who are caught in such a situation can be embarrassed in
exactly the right way, sometimes it induces them to do something about whatever
is causing the embarrassment.
