Scientific Research & Self-Development Activism
Most of you regular members know by now that we introduced a new feature to the site recently - a new page where we can embed livestreams from various places on the web. And we had a very successful trial run with it a few days ago by embedding Chiren & Reese's livestream session in which they gave a preview of their newest video on Consciousness and answered viewers questions about it.
Add-in Edit for clarification: The link to the new "LiveStreaming Now" page will only be visible on the menu bar when we are actually using it.
But we don't want to always link to AtheneLive. We would like to host streaming sessions from other places, too. So, we're asking you all for your input and ideas. What kind of subject material would you like to see us cover, and where would you suggest we get the streaming content for it from?
Note - that while we might have to get permission to do the embeds sometimes, it is not important for our members to be connected to these other sites in any way except visually. In other words, the streaming content, (whatever it might be,) will simply be something that our members can watch together here on this site and chat with each other about. There is no requirement that they be able to interact with anybody on the host's site. So, in that sense, it will be a little bit like watching a television show here together.
The content can be anything, really; even just something funny and entertaining sometimes. I mean, I know that we all like to laugh; and since this will only be a 'once-in-a-while' thing, I don't think that an hour of pure entertainment on the site every so often will take anything away from what we're really all about.
So anyway, what we need are ideas; and suggestions; and links. And especially Where to get the streams from?
So sound off and let us know what you think and give us some input. This is your community, after all. What would you guys like to see us put on that new page once in a while?
We could... but there probably won't be much of a need for that since we can advertise stuff on the I-Power Facebook and Twitter accounts. And post "Special Announcements" on the front page, like I did the other day when we launched it.
There might be an additional benefit in using the Event creation feature here, though.
I'll look into it. ;-)
