It’s true that I don’t have a lot of free time on my hands, but last nights UStream event with the crew was lots of fun. Isis and Arikia have been hosting a regular Friday night get-together on UStream, which is a total blast, but last night Isis couldn’t tear herself away from her hot, hot science to host. As an experiment, I opened up a UStream channel and we happily chatted far to late into the evening.
And…the format is interesting. I can broadcast live video, and have a parallel text chat. This got me thinking. There are one or two online doctor shows (OK, only one that I know of…Dr Anonymous). He uses a call-in format. I’m thinking about having an occasional series where I’ll broadcast and take questions, etc, via text. This is simply an embryonic idea, as I’m not sure I can find the time slot in my life, but it could be great fun, discussing medicine, health care, skepticism…we’ll see.
