  1. So KillerCon has their Con set up so that you fill out a form to register and click on the link that opens the Zoom app. And you’re there. Great video, fantastic audio. See CoNZealand, it can be done.

  2. @Cat,

    Unfair comparison. Killercon is using ONE Zoom room for ALL their live events. CoNZealand had up to eight(?) concurrent Zooms.

    The challenges of scaling up are very real. Please don’t underestimate them.

  3. Soon Lee: CoNZealand had up to eight(?) concurrent Zooms.

    And not only had to tie membership permissions to Zoom, but also to Grenadine, Discord, and The Fantasy Network.
