Ok, an update. We will be having online participation. We will have Slack channel where you can ask questions and have someone with a legal background answer. We'll try our best to answer question quickly but if you happen to be working at night (or day but from across the pond) there may be a delay. We haven't figure out all the logistics yet but we also plan to steam parts of the event, mainly the opening with introductions and team formation, any short talks we happen to have, and judging/feedback at the end.
I'd also like to throw it out there, what can we do that would make participating online better?
