The Periscope experiment was ... interesting. The app tells me there were 14 viewers. I've heard from two friends who were trying to watch via computer who didn't receive the video portion and had problems with the audio too. Friends who were on mobile devices got everything. Periscope says they support web viewers, but maybe that's true for folks on the latest operating systems. The sound was good, though; better than I would've expected through a smartphone's microphone. The program from last night is still available on my profile page. It plays back better as a replay than it did live on a computer, but it's still a little herky-jerky on the video. I don't think I can save it to my desktop and do anything with it.

Musically ... well, I managed to go completely blank on the first verse of one of my own songs. Boo. I got all the words to "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald," and the original song I finished up with.

Overall, it was a good experiment. I can recommend Periscope if you want a quick and easy video setup, but only if all your friends are on smartphones and tablets, I guess. I set up an account at ConcertWindow.com a while ago, and I want to try that sometime. I know that one works with desktops and laptops.

I will take a look at lunchtime or after work. I am looking forward to hearing you!

If I had any suggestions, it would be to orient your phone in a landscape position (aka sideways), rather than portrait position. Those of us who want to see you filling the Big Screen at home will be very grateful! (Having no experience yet with the broadcasting end of Periscope, I don't know if this is an option, but it's worth mentioning.)

Great to see you - sorry again not to have made it out there in person, but it was a difficult night. (Everyone's doing better.) :-)

That's a good suggestion. I actually don't like vertical videos. But then I go and do it. Oops. What's odd is, I think Periscope was just promoting the fact that you could do horizontal video now, as if you couldn't before. I need to look into that.

I'm glad to hear everyone's better. Losing a pet is hard. My condolences.
