Sorry ………

JJust a quick post to say sorry about In My Mug #150 live. Those of you who came along to join in will have found me in rather a flummox with it all.

Google + hangouts seemed like the perfect platform to do this on. In fact, in early testing, it seemed perfect. But during the testing I never thought about limits. When I made it live, ten people ran into the room and I soon found there was a limit.

I tried in a panic to stream it, but that wouldn’t work, and then I got kicked out of my own room.

I managed to cobble something together and I’m in the process of trying to edit it, but if you did miss out, I am super sorry. I aimed high and missed. We do have something that I think is a first for coffee, and I learned a lot about how I would do it next time. I think that one will be an interesting In My Mug.

But BIG sorry from me, I hope you can forgive me for being a tech idiot πŸ™

  1. Don’t be sorry for aiming high.

    We get the coffee that we do because you aim high

  2. Thank you roland your too kind

  3. We shall have to disagree on that one πŸ˜‰

  4. Tests were made, limits were found, things were learned for the IMM200 πŸ™‚
    We use Elluminate in our school, it is web/app software made for low bandwith use, I think there are no limits and moderator can determine/ compose the picture for everyone, incl. webcams and mics of the attendees. We could set up a quick demo if you’d like, Steve.

  5. Hmmm sounds very interesting (elluminate not Roland disagreeing with me) we should talk Frei in a few weeks once the bruises heal

  6. Roland’s right πŸ™‚

    Sorry to hear it went wrong – don’t give up because of it though! Looking forward to IMM 150a, if there is one.

  7. It was a good idea, shame it didn’t work out. Here’s to the next time anyway. Ustream might be another possibility, I’ve no idea how it works from a broadcaster’s point of view but as viewer i seems to work OK.

    Anyway, looking forward to the next IMM and enjoying the Sumatrans.

  8. Thanks Rebecca and Chris you made me feel a lot happier thank you

  9. No harm done! We love you anyway πŸ™‚

  10. Aah you hit the 10 person per hangout limit, great idea though, now google+ is open to the masses, time for them to up the limit.
