It's a great event, but I don't think the organizers know what 'LAN Party' means. LAN, of course, stands for 'Local Area Network', and a LAN Party is what you get when you connect a bunch of computers together in a basement or living room, using ethernet - in other words, locally. And the reason to do this is not to have a chat or conference - you can just talk to people, they're in the same room - but to share in playing the same game, like Doom or Duke Nukeem (did I mention that the term is also very dated?). Nothing like that here - a video with kids that like blogging, a confersation, but no LAN Party.
