I don’t exactly know what’s going to happen, but it looks like I’ll be giving a presentation which will be streamed as a live video in May. Intellectually, I know that it’s not all that exciting, but still, the thought that my voice and moving image could be accessible by anybody at a given hour is…scary. (It will be available later on as a download). More details later.
I am not that shy, but if people are going to be doing this on a regular basis, won’t that mean that everyone will be having their own macaca moments?
Seriously, won’t it cause people to spend more time grooming themselves for the camera (don’t forget that makeup!) and working on delivery skills? People are conscious of the digital legacy being left. At SXSW, I noticed audience members making sure to identify themselves and their company name when asking questions (knowing full well that the number of podcast listeners would far exceed the number of people physically present in the room).
