Thanks to everyone who came out tonight! Our amazing hosts at
Bloomberg, the cats that made good on their RSVPs, Ted Booth, Jennifer
Bove, and Dave Malouf all made this another great NYC event! Add to
that the post-post-reception going away afterparty for Dave, and the
night was complete :).

I want to solicit feedback on our stream of the event tonight, and of
our streams of the past few events. If you joined, what went well/ill,
and what can we do to add to the ex-event experience? Audio and video
quality? Is the chat useful? Helpful to have someone watching and
talking back during the evwnt? If you didn't join, what could we have
done better on our side? I'm working on a streaming best practices
guide for F2Fs around the globe in the hopes of taking out the
guesswork (and thus making streams more common). Please send your
thawts off-list.

Cheers, good night, and good luck!

Nasir,
Thank you for setting up the stream tonight - it was great to be able to log
in and follow events.

My feedback as a remote observer is as follows:
* the quality of the video tonight was not as good as the stream from Will's
presentation last month;
* The video was very pixelated and difficult to make out any real details.
Certainly the slides were indistinguishable; I was lucky that I was able to
follow along using the google docs version.
* The sound was, mostly, good, but spiked rather disturbingly during periods
of applause and laughter.
* The chat is only really useful if the comments I post are conveyed, in
some manner, to the speaker. For example, a question could be relayed to the
speaker as a proxy for being there. However, I know that this isn't always
possible - clearly. Usually, though, there are a few comments asking for
clarification about a question from the audience that wasn't audible through
the audio and at those times it's good to have someone actually following
the chat and responding.

That's about all. I have to reiterate: it was great to be able to see the
presentation.

Regards
Steve
