Reflections on the world premiere of bookofjoeTV
Constant readers will recall it took place 10 days ago, on June 28, 2012.
It was an hour-long live-streamed event in which I spoke for about 15 minutes up front, then took questions from participants via a moderator.
I enjoyed it a lot, broadcasting from atop my moving treadmill here at boj World Headquarters®™© in Charlottesville, Virginia.
I kept the treadmill speed down at its lowest setting (0.5 mph) so as to keep noise and motion artifact to a minimum, though I did give a short demo of my usual 2.0 mph setting.
Gray Cat also made an appearance, which seemed to be the high point of the broadcast for a large proportion of viewers.
Hey, I don't care what floats your boat as long as it enters my waters.
But I digress.
One of the best things about the show was actually speaking to and seeing people who up to then were just legends to me, among them Richard Kashdan and Clif Marsiglio, affectionately known as clifyt.
I was stoked for an encore and in fact had already set it for this coming Thursday at the same time, only to run into some issues with the banner ad for the event that was to appear on bookofjoe to advertise the event.
Long story short: the banner didn't fit in the right hand column as configured, and those in control of its appearance couldn't or wouldn't slim it down to fit.
I was told to just cut 15 pixels off the right side, which looked terrible.
I did that before the first show because my hand was forced but I wasn't willing to repeat it and I told the folks running things that was the case from the get-go.
Alas, they wouldn't bend nor would I so the show's not gonna happen.
But stay tuned: There are many other fish in the sea and it won't be long before bookofjoeTV appears on another network.

How long before it's a paid channel?

Why do you keep scheduling these when I have conflicts?

Make your own banner and don't worry if it is interactive or not. Put things in a GMT time and hope that you have a smart enough crowd to know what this means.
