Hey everyone. We're making our maiden voyage on UStream, which allows you all to see me as we converse about Les Topics of Le Day.

Please enjoy.

(You may or may not have to register to be able to chat with me.)

I will be checking the comments section ... to make sure you can hear me and all.

Yep no comments for me either, at least I get the audio and video though. That's more than I got at work with the regular campfire

THT and I are here but can't get the comment thingy to work.

Blogger cincytiger said...

I sent Jay G an email, maybe he can fix it for us. I can see and hear, but no comments

2:54 PM

THT 2.0
How did you do that?

Blogger Mr. Sensible said...

Nice technology, Jay.

Jay G ...

Saw earlier today that the Cowbell Girl was blind.

Well, I thought I'd be able to participate while at work via the ustream viewing app, but ustream limits that app to only searching "featured" streams at their choosing. So, I can't find the HABOTN stream.

Maybe next time. Exciting technological breakthrough fir the HABOTN family!

This is like Jay on the radio, but better.

Blogger LGGByron said...

Yet another step of media evolution on HABOTN, next step is a holograph Jay being projected out of your computer onto your desktop :P

Awesome Jay. Great work.

Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Good job on the Ted Roof impersonation, JGT!

4:02 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

That was AWESOME! I need to figure out how to post comments/questions live. It may be somehow blocked here by the man.

4:03 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Ok. I may get fired, but I had to witness history, so I had to log on at work. Shhhh.... Don't tell my bosses!

I couldn't get the chat part to work though. Not sure why?

Nice Ted Roof sign off JG!

Blogger cincytiger said...

Mine cut off just when Jay started his impersonation!

Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

If she's blind, I'll feel bad.

I think the one I'm talking about is a xylophone player.

4:04 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I don't know if those of you who couldn't get on were doing this, but I was writing comments and hitting the send button. Doesn't work. You have to just hit enter.

4:04 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

Scotto Choco, where us your little choco shop located again? Somewhere in the 'Ham, right? I gotta drop by and sample the goods sometime.
Shoot me an email with the locale, if you don't mind, sir.

4:05 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I have about 20 comments that are flying around in space somewhere. Not sure where they went.

4:05 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Glad you all enjoyed that.

It's probably better than a standard chat from my end. I can play music, use visual aids, laugh at the things y'all say.

How often would you all attend these kinds of functions?

4:05 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

I could see the "comments" section, but not the "chat" part. They are different, aren't they?

4:06 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

It can replace the campfire.

I can work and have it in the background, and it's much easier to follow than the campfire.

4:08 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Just looking over some basic stats.

The "show" lasted 1 hr, 40 min.

We had a total of 489 unique viewers.

We averaged 83 viewers watching at any one time.

Great start, everyone! Incredible.

4:08 PM  
Blogger THT 2.0 said...

JGT, THT would attend them whenever he isn't at work, like today. We both enjoyed it.

4:09 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

D.Miller ... there are two separate elements to that deal.

The first is video. That has its own code.

The second is the chat interface. That has its own code as well.

Comments is a separate deal, yea.

Sounds like you missed both of the UStream elements. Bummer.

4:10 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

I agree, possible campfire upgrade.
I wonder if ustream allows video conferencing? Like can we send in video questions or do a full on video chat with 30 (90) people?

4:10 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Thanks, 2.0!

4:10 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

I have the option of "taping" them for later playback.

I didn't do that today. I'll make that happen for the next one.

4:10 PM  
Blogger Harrison said...

I missed it. Was it awesome. Did Jay have a shirt on?

4:10 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

D ... I'm 95% sure we can do that.

I have the option of adding people to the broadcast, so I think that would work. You would just be part of the show, as it were.

4:11 PM  
Blogger D. Miller said...

I snuck in on the tail end of the video portion, JGT. (hopefully the man doesn't fire me because of it).

4:11 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

If they're on Tuesday afternoons, I'll attend every week. If not, probably not so much. I dug it, though. Sorry if my critique was sounding like complaining, I was just trying to help on the first run. I do that.

4:13 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

D. Miller - just sent you an e-mail.

4:14 PM  
Blogger LGGByron said...

That was a good distraction, while I am currently chloroxing my bathroom. :(

4:14 PM  
Blogger mytommyd said...

Really enjoyed the video campfire. I imagine one day you will have an actual fire next to you to make it even MORE true to word. Comments wouldn't update, and I was afraid everytime I refreshed, at somepoint I'd get kicked off, so I didn't try to do that.

The band girl was standing with the xylophone player. But I got to say even if she is blind, blind people have fun too. I mean she's at the Fiesta Bowl on national television!!

On that note, Boise State's band has to be the "whitest" band on earth. I would have to say there may have been 6 or 7 kids in that band with actual rhythm. It's a good thing they were on before TCU.

Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

New thread UPZ.

4:15 PM  
Blogger API said...

It apparently would not let me register - or post any comments. I was on the actual site, and not viewing thru HABOTN
