... if I may refer to myself in the third person.

Anyway, I'm trying an experiment. I'm fiddling with doing a live video chat every week for an hour, and I want to give it a test run. At 7:00 p.m. Mountain time (02:00 Thursday morning Universal Time, 1.5 hours from the time I post this entry) I'll be live on my new UStream channel. Here's a handy countdown clock to help you know how much time is left until the chat:


When you go to that page, if it's working (and I'm logged in), you'll see a window with me sitting in my office, blabbering about something. There is a chat room embedded on that page, so you can chat with me and each other, and I'll try to handle the load of the conversation! You are automatically put into the chat room with a name like user87950875 or some such; "type /nick [nickname]" (replace [nickname] with whatever nickname you want) to change your name.

As part of the experiment I am embedding the video stream here. If this works, you'll see me on this blog page when I'm on!

Eventually I hope to do this on a regular basis, and make it fancier like Chris Pirillo does (and thanks go to him for his help in getting me to understand this fancy schmancy tech).

See you on the web! Actually, I won't, but you'll see me...

Update: I think that went pretty well! Lots of folks, fun comments, and good questions. I know there wasn't much lead time, but this was an experiment. When I do this again I'll give more notice. But I do want to make it a weekly event.
