The majority of us are members and appreciate all that has been done for the community. However, if the community wants to be the vanguard in having online teachings of high quality, we should all do our best to help make this happen and not be complacent.
Yeah, I'm trying to help right now by pointing out that it's not a problem that needs more money thrown at it, but probably less. If Hoodstream can broadcast illegally to tens of thousands consistently, night after night, via Ustream without problems and for free, then certainly Namkhai Norbu could broadcast legal activities without a problem. Use DC donations for more important things like not losing the Conway property--and I don't mean worldwide broadcasts are less important than a single piece of property, but if they can be broadcast cheaper and more efficiently, then there are better ways to spend that money.
Less money, less effort dancing around trying to fix problems. Win/win situation here. Everyone knows this sort of thing is way too expensive to maintain; that's why we have so many professional services who specialize in this sort of thing for free or cheaper, such as Ustream, Justin.tv, Livestream, Openoffice, etc. Their whole business is based around delivering such possibility efficiently and affordably.
