Kevin Rose and Jay Adelson.
Yes a dog kept running back and forth behind them, yes they were drinking soda instead of their usual imported beers, and YES they both matched at the beginning of the Town Hall…
They had a great Town Hall. They answered tons of questions and enjoyed themselves throughout. It looks easy, but lets give them a round of applause, or at least a golf clap as you sit there behind your computer screen. Bravo Digg, Bravo.
If you missed the recording, I included the embed below. Enjoy 🙂
On Monday night, February 25th, the first ever Digg Town Hall will take place. Starting at 6pm (PST) Kevin Rose (Founder) and Jay Adelson (CEO) from Digg will be streaming live with Ustream.tv in order to interact, discuss, and hang out with their members. Honestly, as an avid Digg user and a huge fan, and employee, of Ustream, this is especially exciting. If there was ever a recipe for success – its Digg + Ustream.
The reason I am, and most people are exited about Ustream, is the fact that it enables you to interact in real time with your viewers. This is neither prerecorded media with its delayed feedback, or live television. Ustream is somewhere in between – its a place where you can broadcast to thousands of people but at the same time get instant feedback from anyone watching. Digg has found a way to use this in a creative way. Digg users wanted to be more involved and the employees wanted input – Ustream was the answer. The Town Hall is the missing link between all who love Digg and want to improve it. Using live video and the chat room, Digg is on a quest to connect with their users and create an open environment where there is a free flow of information – very exciting stuff.
It is such an honor to partner with them and make this all possible – We look forward to streaming this Town Hall and the many more to come.
