Details for Interactive Episode

Here are details for the interactive, FIR episode, number 142, on Thursday, June 1. The show begins at 9 a.m. PDT, 4 p.m. GMT, 6 p.m. Amsterdam time. To participate, start out at our Skypecast page:

https://skypecasts.skype.com/skypecasts/skypecast/detailed.html?id_talk=6843

You’ll be able to participate LIVE in the conversation Neville Hobson and I generally do by ourselves. I’ll announce the process, but in short, you’ll have a keyboard command you’ll use to virtually raise your hand. I’ll announce whom we’re hearing from next and release you so you can talk. We’ll record the entire session and post it as our regular podcast. At the same time you’re listening and (we hope) participating, you can also engage in a live, real-time chat right on our podcat website:

http://www.forimmediaterelease.biz/index.php/chat

You’ll need Skype to participate, but it’s completely free and drop-dead-easy to use. If you don’t already have it, just download it and install it at http://www.skype.com

IABC Conference Dinearound Details

For those of you who RSVP’d to join us for dinner at the IABC conference, here’s the lowdown:

We’ll dine at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 4, at Cafe de Paris, 751 Denman Street. This is the evening of the opening reception, which is being held at the Vancouver Aquarium. The reception begins at 6:30 p.m., so you’ll have plenty of time to network before leaving for the restaurant, where we have a reservation for 12 people. That means we have a few open spots, so if you haven’t let us know you’ll be joining us, you can still snag a spot and enjoy a moderately priced French meal with Neville and me and several other FIR listeners. Some of the folks we know will be there: Laura Smart, Donna Papacosta, Tom Keefe, Dave Traynor and Ed O’Meara. If I missed you, let me know!

The restaurant has a website: http://www.cafedeparisbistro.com We’ll. see you there!

FIR goes live on June 1

Listeners to For Immediate Release: The Hobson and Holtz Report will be able to participate actively in the show as we record episode #142 on Thursday, June 1.

Since we record the show over Skype anyway, it was not a huge leap to record a Skypecast, a conference call-like service that allows dozens of people to participate. We’ll cover the normal content we usually review in a show, but you’ll be able to join in the discussion with us in real time. In addition, you’ll be able to chat with each other by visiting the chat room we set up just for this live, interactive show. The chat room will be at www.forimmediaterelease.biz/index.php/weblog/chat/. We’ll monitor the chat room during the show, taking questions posted there and commenting on the discussion, as well.

The entire show will be posted as a regular FIR episode.

The show kicks off at 4 p.m. GMT, 9 a.m. PDT (where Shel lives) and 6 p.m. Amsterdam time (Central European Time) for Neville. To join the conversation, visit the Skypecasts page, find the Skypecast labeled “For Immediate Release,” and click “Sign in to join.” If course, you’ll need Skype, but it’s free from www.skype.com and requires only a microphone and headphones (or a headset that combines the two).

image Add this event to your calendar!

We’re both looking forward to your participation in this unique Hobson & Holtz installment!
