#EventProfs Audio Experiment – Hit or Miss?

eventprofslogo #EventProfs Audio Experiment   Hit or Miss?

I hope you enjoy and dont mind this Talkshoe #eventProfs Audio Experiment which I threw down the MeetingsPodcast feed. Lara McCulloch-Carter started this Event and meeting bi-weekly chats using Twitter and Tweetchat which lets you see only the tweets with the #eventprofs hashmark. Today eventprofs took another step forward (or backwards some said) by adding video to the mix. Robert Swanwick of SpeakerInteractive.com headed this trial run today. The process was hindered by Twitter really lagging behind I found it to be 8- 10 minutes behind so most people who werent on the call were left out of the action. But I think they had some good conversation.
