Proposal Summary: More in keeping with our university mission, this approach was used by the British Open University to create a live webcast from the Matterhorn. They used "genuinely domestic-level" technologies to create a Webcast-without satellite or videophones-that would still enable anyone in the world to share the experience. In this applications, text chats and  audio reports were transmitted and held live by a party climbing the Matterhorn and those following on the website.
