    Re: A Proposal from Jeff - Need your feedback

    Wow, Jeff!
    It sure would be cool if you could make a video for us long distance guys. (Camtasia Studio 8)
    No matter where you go, there you are.

I do recognize several member names that seem to know very good info, but wouldn't want to bother you all with questions. I wouldn't be able to attend, but I would absolutely vote yes 100% to the concept and would assuredly learn from a video.

      Thanks ( to all ) for all the stuff you all have provided that I am learning from,

      Don,
      IMHO I believe there are no stupid questions, more that there are people that make assumptions and screw everything up because they didn't ask. To me that is stupid, not the person who asks because they don't know and want to learn. Just my humble opinion... :D
      HAGD,

      Even though I try to tell everyone upfront, understand that I am still a Newb. I wish the status of Seasoned Veteran/Senior Member, etc. was earned with time not posts...

        Sounds like a perfect plan - with a couple months notice.

          This is a great, great thing you're proposing, Jeff. Here's hoping that it happens.

          That would be great if vendors don't do it or if Jeff decided not to have vendors do it. I am sure the diy community could pull together a great video tutorial while still allowing Jeff to demonstrate without feeling constrained by trying to make a video at the same time.

            Even though I am too far away to attend ( west coast), I think it's a great idea. It would be very helpful to someone (like me) who is wanting to start measuring and designing.

              Another definite maybe here. This would be great for those of us who learn better by seeing and asking questions. I would do all I could to attend. And to you Jeff, thanks for all your contributions and even entertaining the thought of something like this. This is what makes PETT such a great community.

                OK, a few quick replies.

                First, this took off faster than I expected. I'm leaving in the morning with the family for a few days on Lake Michigan at a little town we run off to every summer. I'll check in, but not as frequently as normal.

                Second, before everyone decides that this will be a joint venture with someone like PE, please keep in mind that I haven't decided to do that and may not. I have not talked with anyone yet, and since I have a strong relationship with another vendor I had considered asking them to come. However, PE may still be to be a part of it all, this is still in the thinking stage.

                Third, I have no idea of a date or what exact preparations I will need to make. I'll start looking into it as soon as I return from Michigan.

                Fourth, I will likely use OmniMic and DATS (so PE might get involved) since these are used by a lot of people and are plug and play on my lap top. Since I will be using OmniMic I have already thought about contacting Bill Waslo to see if he would like to join me.

                Fifth, I am not sure I am sold on the video recording and live streaming. This is all new to me (doing the seminar) and those things take some of the casualness out of it and leave little room for error. I will have to think about that. I would be more comfortable if the first time is a bit more intimate of an experience. We will see, like I said, still thinking....

                Jeff
                Jeff, I think this will do alot to advance the hobby. I understand your reservations about the live stream/video aspect but maybe it could be done after the
                event like some of P/E tutorials. When I built the Aviatrix kit, it was very helpful to have
                the video tutorial to go back to for the X-over assembly. Maybe P/E would produce a
                video for exactly for what you propose. I'm sure most people on this forum would love
                to attend an event like this but life, logistics and money will play a part. I can only see this as a win/win for P/E and us newbies,please consider the benefit to all outside the ability
                to go to Kokomo. Maybe you could win an Oscar for the video. Best of luck Mike

                  Jeff, you better get the biggest room. You're likely to need it when the DIY world finds out!

                  And how about a trip west to the Pacific region?

                    I would love to attend to such an event, but being in another country makes it kind of difficult. The video idea sounds great, I would buy it for sure and it might even be included on the purchase of an omnimic as part of the instructions...

                      Have video, will travel! I have real video lights, Canon video cameras and lenses, I can arrange for BoomCams or whatever is needed. Give me some lead-time, and I might be able to get Winner Communications' production semi up there with all the people needed to do a "small market" college football game or the Union High/Broken Arrow High football game. I've run their Chyron for them enough on short notice for free they owe me a BIG ONE by now. Once it's "in the can" DVD's, Blu-Ray's, and streaming is easy.

                        I might be willing to donate some flyer miles to Jeff, if he were willing to do it somewhere south (like Austin, TX).

                        Otherwise I'll be chipping in for the webinar!

                          Other options along the "record the video" line
                          (sorry if these have been mentioned-it's late, I rapidly looked at the replies)

                          --YouTube videos. Less formal. Can't make much money but more internet fame...
                          --Do an audio recording with a screen capture program and post that on YouTube.
                          audioheuristics isn't around right now...

                            Jeff I hope you reconsider this - streaming and online video is such an integral and effective part of learning/dissemination of information these days. Certainly one could say that before TT and other forums such education was also more intimate. Of course an attendee could just as well make their own video of what they learn but then we head off into a game of telephone and secondhand informrtion, which the internet is NOT good at - so I hope you will be open to the possibility of streaming; perhaps as a compromise if there is someone who has the savvy, your seminar can be converted to an online presentation with focus just on slides and your voice for audio only, etc. Lots of possibilities.

                                I think you're right and although i'd very much like to see a video, I can understand why you wouldn't want to do one (I'd hate the thought of doing a seminar, let alone the extra pressure of it being on video).

                                How about a separate video with the camera pointed at the computer screen, with you explaining how to use your software? If it doesn't work out, just delete it and forget it ever happened.
                                I'd be more than happy to pay for a video tutorial (I tried to use PCD but must of done something wrong :( ). As i'm sure loads of other people would too.
