Lab Chat launches November 19th – with Ebbe Linden answering your questions!

Lab Chat Logo

Lab Chat Logo

We are delighted to announce the first episode of a new show – Lab Chat (recorded in front of a live audience and then broadcast on numerous streams including Second Life’s You Tube channel, AviewTV and SLArtist).

The first broadcast will be at 10.30am SLT in the LEA Theatre with seating available on LEA2, 3 and 4.

Remember how, at SL12B, Ebbe Linden, the CEO of Linden Lab, after talking to residents in an event hosted by Frau Jo Yardley and Saffia Widdershins (you can see it here), said that he would love to do this again, hopefully regularly?

Since then, a group of us have been talking about ways we could make this happen. We’ve been a little inspired by the BBC TV series Question Time, where politicians answer questions posed by members of the public, and then respond to points made (by each other and audience members). Jo Yardley first suggested it here on her blog.

We’ve been working with Linden Lab on this, and we are very pleased to announce that the first Lab Chat will be held on Thursday 19th November. You can see the post from the Lab about it here.

How do you submit your questions?

You enter your questions on the special Linden Lab Forum here.

The questions to feature on the show will be chosen by the Lab Chat team (who are all residents). Don’t worry if your question isn’t chosen – as you may have a chance to ask it in the open session at the end (if there is time).

People whose questions are chosen will be invited to appear on the stage. They will be able to put their questions directly to Ebbe, in voice if they wish (or their questions will be read if they don’t use Voice/Skype).

The audience will be in the other three regions of the theater. Voice relays mean that what is said will be audible on all four regions. There are also a set of text chat relays so that all text should be visible on all regions. If there’s time, questions asked in text chat will also be put to Ebbe.

We will also have a voice-to-text service to let people know what is being said in voice, and there will be a full transcription published later to accompany the video. Highlights will be broadcast on the Drax Radio Files show.

We’re really excited about this – and we hope you will be too!

So get your questions in – and we will see you at the first show.

Lab Chat Team: Draxtor Despres, Gentle Heron, Elrik Merlin, Petlove Petshop, Inara Pey, Aisling Sinclair, DevinVaughan, Saffia Widdershins, and Jo Yardley
