hanging out


Published Jan 31 2013 via RSS

Yesterday I mused on Google+:
I used to do a "seigo on kde" live video cast back in the day ("straight from his bedroom, heeeeeeere's aaron!" ;) with viewer interaction, and they were a lot of fun and pretty well attended.

Years have passed, and I'm considering starting up again using Google+ Hangout, though with a slightly broader scope to encompass the bigger world of things that make up the Free software user experience landscape. It'll retain a KDE perspective, but not be limited exclusively to "things KDE makes".
The response was quite good .. and so I've decided to go ahead with it. I'll be hosting the first Hangout tonight (!) at 18:00 UTC. Why the short notice? This will be something of a dry run to get the feel for "on air" Hangouts, both in terms of the production bits and the audience management. If all goes well tonight with the technical details, I"ll make this a weekly thing with a regular schedule posted and a proper announcement a day in advance to remind all you wonderful peoples.

Tonight's agenda will look like this:

  • Introduction: why the hell am I doing this?
  • Four dot Ten: A preview of why the upcoming 4.10 releases of KDE's Platform, Workspaces and Applications are interesting and exciting
  • Onwards to Five: Reflections of the plans for Frameworks 5 and Plasma Workspaces 2 as revealed in the last week across various people's blogs
  • Open source groupware: More public tenders for open source groupware are appearing, but are they "for real" .. and Kolab 3.
  • The Meditation Chamber: this is where the audience will be invited to join in the conversation with (topical) topics of interest and questions to share. We'll ruminate on it together while avoiding it becoming a vapid chamber of echoes. Or so I hope :) So if you are able to show up, come with ideas for us to discuss! Compelling topics that deserve a more complete examination may even become the topic of future shows ...

The intro will be 2-3 minutes, the next 3 sections will each be under 5 minutes and the Meditation Chamber will be open ended. That's the plan, we'll see how reality pans out.

The resulting video will be posted online (one of the spiffy features of Google Hangouts) immediately after completion, and if all goes well I'll set up a permanent schedule and we'll see how far this takes us.

p.s. This is distinct from KDE Teatime in that it won't be a bunch of nice KDE people talking to each other about $STUFF but a quick set of informative (or so I hope ;) bits of news and reflections followed by viewer interaction. I enjoy watching KDE Teatime, and hope it continues entertaining me and its other viewers. :)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
