In these sad confinement times, we decided to organize an epic remote party with some friends. The idea is to make it a "burn" with different spaces, rooms, art, performances, some toilet paper burning, chill places to chat with friends - a marathon of maybe 72h, about 200 people.
I figured I'd come here for some technical advice. There is
1: the technical challenges of making this work at all
2: the user experience challenge of making it fun and not too convoluted
So we would need to have multiple rooms, livestreams, video chats and all. (Right now we're looking at having rooms on a pro Zoom account).
But maybe people want to stream on other platforms like Discord/Twitch/Youtube? Maybe we want some kind of IRC (or Hubski-style chat) where people can text chat/post link to private streams? Thinking of having all (or some) of the links on a "map" on a password-protected website.
Sounds like a fun technical challenge, so I was wondering how you would do it? Any cool ideas? Services that would be fun to integrate? Suggestions if you have experience in these kind of things?
And to make this a more fun thread - what would you do on such a stream? What kind of performance or fun activity?
Exited to push all this technology we have to the limits, see what kind of funky stuff we can come up with.
Edit: If anyone has experience watching/creating Twitch streams i'd love to hear from you. Basically trying to see what are the benefits to integrating it vs having people stream directly of Discord or Zoom.
