Hi Darsha,

i once remember "seeing" a virtual talk of i think Ben Bogart, who had 
his desktop relayed via VNC, streamed his voice and the output of his 
patch via an audio stream and was receiving questions and responses via 
an irc channel.

This worked out quite good. If you want to give it a try, let's arrange 
a date/time to do so?

lg, PP
