Noise & I both played with that a few times. It's reasonably simple. My netbook had adequate horsepower.
Here's a video I shot one Wed. http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/5690418 [nsfw? mild language]
It would be really cool if someone had a good mic and a slightly better camera that you could use. Then you could use it to bring around and showcase different things at the meeting. If you can record it while streaming you could also edit it later into a highlights reel.
An actual camera and quality mic would be great. Using a netbook & built-in webcam is suboptimal.
We also have a couple of overhead document cameras kicking around the shop somewhere. Those would rock for soldering tutorials and such. I think it might be cool to record some of the classes and have at least video highlights online, if not entire sessions.
Ustream can record online, or on the local hard drive. Not sure about formats or editability.
