We are holding EmacsConf 2021 as an online conference again this year.
We remain fully committed to freedom, and we will continue using our
infrastructure and streaming setup consisting entirely of [free
software][freesw], much like previous EmacsConf conferences.
+## Watching
+On November 27 and 28, you will be able to watch the livestreams via
+<>, which will also have details on how to
+watch the streams using media players that support streaming (like mpv
+and VLC).
+In the meantime, please feel free to enjoy the videos from [[2020]]
+and previous years.
+## Participating
+For audience questions specifically, we will use a
+collaboratively-editable Etherpad as the primary means of collecting
+audience questions. We will be posting a link to the pad closer to the
+event. If, however, you are unable to access the pad to add your
+question(s), we will still try to take questions from our
+questions-specific IRC channel (`#emacsconf-questions` on
+``), and we ask one or two volunteers to kindly add
+questions from that channel to the pad on behalf of folks who are not
+able to or prefer not to use the web-based questions pad.
Come hang out with us in the `#emacsconf` channel on ``
(the [Libera.Chat][libera] IRC network). You can join the chat using
[your favourite IRC client][libera-emacsconf],
