Local video deity Jonny Goldstein is doing something really cool on his blog. Jonny is the type of guy who isn’t satisfied with things working okay the way they are and is always pushing the envelope to see what’s next.
His latest thing is doing live webcasts of a talk show he has been producing on and off for at least a year. Jonny and I worked together briefly for a company doing this, but it quickly became apparent that the money and technology had not yet converged to make the enterprise successful enough to sustain our employment.
Me, I went on to developing other things. Jonny continued to pursue the live webcast route and has been testing a number of different platforms. Now he has a pretty regular talk show going, streaming live from East Hyattsville.
This Wednesday you can catch Jonny interviewing Beth Kanter, who will be joining the show from Lowell, MA. In addition, if the gods allow a reliable connection, Jay Dedman and Ryanne Hodson will be on the show live from Thailand, where they are working to help an NGO do some video production to prevent human trafficking.
I think this will be quite an interesting show. Please come check it out if you have time.
When: Wednesday, 9:00 p.m.
What you need: Viewers just need a computer connected to broadband.
Interaction: During the show, you can participate in the group text chat, and if you have a webcam, he may be able to put you on air.
