I wish I had a screenshot to show you, but, as I mentioned before, episode 2 of Stilgherrian Live Alpha wasn’t recorded. It only lives on in the memories of the 20-odd people who watched it live — and then probably not for long.
What did we learn this time?
The key lesson is that it just isn’t possible to do everything on my old PowerBook G4. There ain’t enough processing power. And there isn’t quite the cashflow to organise my new Macbook Pro for a couple of weeks. That leaves me with an important decision: How do I shape this alpha series in the meantime?
The coming Geek Week will provide plenty of interesting interview opportunities. Perhaps I should get hold of a DV camera for a few days and record material for use over subsequent weeks? Does that defeat the “live” bit?
That said, anyone got a DV camera with Firewire output I can borrow for the week?
Should I do live reports directly from the conference venues, using simplified audio and video layers so my poor little ‘puter isn’t overloaded?
Ah questions, questions… and it’s Saturday. I have no answers.
