Thank you, Jonathan, for these comments and I agree with them all -

Steve was telling me how the Wikimania conference scheduled live streaming of their conference and it is quite similar to what you propose below - more time between performances and not so much of the problems that occurred with the technology -

We could actually cut those sections from another version of the longer videos we have, but we will also keep the long original versions of the videos too, because I think this whole process has been fascinating - if you realize that we did this with zero funding, and it was broadcast from my home office and our family room in our home, and in Steve’s office in Iowa - that alone is an amazing fact that technology has come that far - and because the Google Hangouts software is free to use that too makes it much more possible to use it -

But do not think, just because it was broadcast from our homes, that we are not a serious and important factor in the online Symposium world - I plan to make the SignWriting Symposium an important academic and educational event, as well as an entertaining event, for many years to come.

So all in all I think it was great we did it and we plan to improve it my leaps and bounds in 2015 - and it is this kind of feedback that is necessary to improve it - so thank you for these comments -

Val ;-)

Hello SignWriting List!
  I really enjoyed the Symposium even though I watched afterwards.  I am looking forward to translations of the Portuguese and LIBRAS talks so I can understand them.

I notice that on day three you managed to have the screen showing, and the interpreter at the bottom. But on day four the Hangout went back to it's old anticks and didn't show the interpreter.

Thinking of you Val, I wanted to suggest shorter sessions.  Maybe a bit more non filmed time to set up between each presenter.  That way we get a bit more concise talk once they are ready. 
Also before the end of each talk, Steve could step in and read off the questions for you.  That way you won't have to worry about finding the Q&A section, and it would make it more interactive and more fully embrace the live aspect of the symposium.

I think that a Symposium once a year would be great.

Regards,
Jonathan

Hello SignWriting List!

Just catching my breath, after an amazing experience at the SignWriting Symposium.

I feel really lucky to have shared it all with you…

We have already thanked each other, and we know we appreciate each other's efforts …

But what are your opinions about Google Hangouts? Did you enjoy presenting that way?

How would you improve the experience next time?

Let’s share our ideas here on the SignWriting List…

I look forward to reading about your experiences and opinions…

And what can you envision for the future? How often would you like another Symposium?

Val ;-)
