Chat with Chris 2018

Chat with Chris 2018
Date - July 25, 2018
Time – GMT 20:00

This year we are going to do something a bit different. We shall be having a video chat.

This is how we expect it to work:

Chris (and other participants from CW) will be live on video and audio. I will act as the meeting moderator and will also be live on video and audio. All other participants can connect to the "meeting" in a passive way with muted audio and no requirement for video. Prompted by me, the CW guys will work through various topics, using verbal explanations, supported by pictures and other visuals.

To make the process interactive but retain some sort of order (previous "chats" have tended to get a bit chaotic"), all participants will be able to "ask questions" directed to me using the keyboard (Zoom chat function). I will filter the questions - remove duplicates etc, and ask the most interesting ones by audio.

A transcript will not be provided, but instead we will (hopefully) provide a recording of the meeting, together with any supporting pictures or links for your viewing pleasure.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is what you would need to do to participate:

Download a free copy of the Zoom Client program prior to the chat. Available here. Tablet and phone users may get Zoom in their App stores.

Inform Kip that you wish to participate. Please contact me via pm/email to let me know and include your email so I may send you the link on the chat day.

We are limited to 100 participants so first come first served.

Open the meeting link that you would be provided with. You would be able to join in at any time even if the chat is already in progress. The link will be sent the day of the chat approx.. 1 hour prior to start time.

Click on the link to participate

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

During the actual chat, your audio and outgoing video would be disabled by the host.

After the chat, a post will be made providing a link to the video, photos used during the chat and any appropriate links.


The "Chat with Chris 2018" will be held on Wednesday July 25th.

The chat will start at GMT 20:00 and will last for approximately 1 hour (we usually go longer).

To expedite preparation, I have started a thread here to post your questions.

I shall start the chat with the top 5 questions and/or the ones of most interest to everyone. Please have your questions posted by July 22. I will post the list of 5 questions that will be asked so you can have any others you may have ready to go.

During the chat, you may also ask questions via the Zoom chat function. Direct your questions to me and I will make every effort to get them in based on interest and duplicity.

If you are unable to attend and have a specific or general question that you do wish to ask, please send me a pm and I will make every effort to get your question in if time permits. No guarantees….but I will try.

As in the past, we are anticipating some talk about the upcoming new models (perhaps some revelations), as well as CWLs future plans.

All our prior chats have been very enjoyable, most informative and very well attended.

As we are limited to 100 participants this will be first come first served. Remember to contact me via pm/email asap to let me know you will be attending. Include your email so I may send you the link on the chat day.

We realize that the time will not suit everyone, but it really is the best we can do for the majority of time zones we cover as well as coordinating with the busy schedules.

Just one comment. During our testing, it has been quite challenging to get the video recording into production. Of course, we are aiming to get that done for the actual chat, but it cannot be guaranteed.

So, to ensure you don’t miss anything, I would recommend watching it ‘live’ if at all possible.

Thanks to everyone who attended the Chat this evening.

I will begin, so called, post production processing. If all goes well we hope we can get this up in a few days. If not I will put together some sort of summary.

For those that attended, it would be great to get some feedback. I saw a few on the Zoom chat, but would love to see what you think here.

With the video format Chris was able to cover a lot more ground than in previous years.

Some great new releases coming up.
