I made sure I arrived early in fact I arrived over an hour early, that wasn’t exactly by design but it was certainly God’s plan. Let me tell you I did not expect the main guest speaker for the weekend Phil Bubar to be the one to open the door and let me inside. It was very nice to meet Phil and get to chat with him a little before the first presentation. That said I was glad I got in as early as I did because it enabled me to set up my laptop and all it’s accessories, I needed to be prepared to Tweet or Facebook or whatever the weekend.
Once all my stuff was set up in the back of the room I went to talk to Richard Tinker because he had been talking about the possibility of livestreaming the event. Much to my (happy) surprise I found that indeed we were going to be sending the event out live over the internet, and with that knowledge I went back to my laptop, opened the page, and logged in.
Live chat! Oh my! That was unexpected. To be honest I hadn’t expected something both so awesome and daunting however that wasn’t going to stop me from doing my best to include those online in the truthstream into the weekend proper. So I set about making them seem as much as possible as if they were ostensibly right there in the room participating with us.
Get ‘em Involved
As the first day continued I began to try and figure out ways to further bring the weekend to life for those joining us through the truthstream, all the while using my facebook update as my pseudo twitter feed. I was putting a lot of information out there and you can look me up on Twitter by searching for Ross Cooper and friending me or checking out my history on the wall. You’ll find a lot of information from each of the weekend’s presentations.
Friday night as I sat on the very couch where I am typing this post I contemplated how I could make Saturday even more interactive for those joining us through the truthstream. Looking at the breakout sessions I realized that there were two Questions and Answer Breakouts on in the morning and one in the evening- that was my answer.
I would make the offer to all the people on the Truthstream to ask their questions of Phil Bubar and Dale Ratzlaff…and record their answers.
And I’ll share those in Truthstreams Part Two!
