Where Do I Watch CMEpalooza Fall?

Where do I watch CMEpalooza Fall?
You watch it on the LIVE page.

Will people be able to hear me on the Hangout?
No. You are not on the Hangout. You are only watching a video feed of the Hangout. You can sing The Humpty Dance at the top of your lungs and no one will hear you except your neighbors, who might call the police, who might interrupt you while watching CMEpalooza. So, don’t sing The Humpty Dance at the top of your lungs while watching CMEpalooza.

Can I watch CMEpalooza Fall at the office?
Yes.

Can I watch CMEpalooza Fall at home?
Yes.

Can I watch CMEpalooza Fall in a conference room with 100 other people?
Please do.

Can I watch CMEpalooza Fall at the top of Machu Picchu? 
I doubt you can get wifi there, but sure, go for it.

Can I watch CMEpalooza Fall with Hillary Clinton?
I don’t know. Let’s ask her.

I guess she’s busy.

Do I have to pre-register or register?
Nope.

Do I have to pay anything to watch CMEpalooza Fall? I love paying registration fees.

No. You don’t have to pay anything to watch CMEpalooza.

Do I have to take a survey afterward?
Well, you don’t have to, but it would be nice if you did. It’s only seven questions and shouldn’t take you more than 60 seconds. If it takes you more than 60 seconds, Scott will bake you a shoo-fly pie and hand deliver it to your home.

How do I ask questions to the presenters?
Good question. There are three ways you can ask questions:

  1. Send a text to the CMEpalooza text line at 267-666-0CME (0263)
  2. Tweet a question using the #CMEpalooza hashtag
  3. Click on the Google Slides link on the LIVE page and enter your question there

Longtime CMEpalooza participants will notice that option #3 is different than in years past. When Google in their infinite wisdom made the decision to drop Google Hangouts On Air and merge the Hangout platform with YouTube Live, one of the things they dropped was their handy Q&A app. We liked using the Q&A app with our CMEpalooza sessions and were disappointed when they discontinued it, but we’re professionals around here and we’ve learned how to deal with adversity. Here’s video of my reaction upon hearing the news:

Fortunately, the Google Slides hack for asking questions is actually quite simple and should be a nice alternative to the Q&A app.

Do I have to watch all the sessions?
YES! No. Watch what interests you.

What if I’m busy during the day of the live broadcast?
All the sessions will be archived on the website, probably within 15 minutes of the conclusion of the session. How are we able to do it so fast? We have a new intern who is a real crackerjack on the interwebs. Here he is hard at work, writing our latest blog post.
