I use Meetecho to do this, and I place myself next to the front participant mic (so I can see the name tag of the person speaking), and then I type on jabber the name of who the person speaking in the mic. There is (I've been told) now a suggestion to the IETF secritariat to reserve the seat next to the front mic (at table) for Jabber scribe, and this would be great. Now we just need to teach everybody to flash their badge to the jabber scribe as well.

I also do this, and agree it’s a good idea.

My guess is that most people use Meetecho because it gives the complete view of what's going on, you get chat+presentation+video+sound, and you can also ask questions (which was used numerous times in the sessions I participated in).

I also noticed that remote people don’t seem to want slide numbers called out now. Might be interesting to see if we have stats on numbers of people listening to the old school audio-only streams, or on non-Meetecho participants in Jabber (the login IDs of Meetecho people is distinctive there…), just to get some data points on current trends.

Just like Beetlejuice :)
