Well, today’s Periscope Dark Matter Joseph Mallozzi Q&A was a tremendous success! Insofar as I actually got it to work…eventually. One full minute of confused dead air time aside, it came together as expected: fun, informative, and sporadically awkward. I think that, in the future, I’ll just stick with the onscreen questions as bouncing between two screens should only be attempted by true professionals. Also, what is the deal with the color schemes on the floating viewer commentary? Small writing against pastel backdrops make shout-outs an extremely challenging proposition.
I suppose it could’ve been worse. I could have spent the half hour unwittingly talking to myself – or worse, failed to turn the damn thing off and given everyone a fascinating peek at the life of an Executive Producer on hiatus (mainly sitting around watching old episodes of the 1960’s Spiderman cartoon).
I DID manage to save the Q&A and upload it to youtube. Whether that’s actually a good thing is debatable.
Anyway, now that I’ve worked out all the bugs on this, my first Periscope event, the next ones will be smoooooth sailing. Nay, dare I say: Perfect! Depending on how I’m feeling, I may actually try to do one following this Friday’s North American airing of Episode 107, 11 p.m. EST, 7 p.m./10 p.m. PST. What do you think?
Meanwhile, for those of you who missed this afternoon’s debacle, here it is in all of it’s raw, unedited glory:
