Where do I watch CMEpalooza?
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 play William Shatner’s spoken word version of Rocket Man at full volume and no one will hear you except your neighbors, who might call the police, who might interrupt you while watching CMEpalooza. So, don’t play William Shatner’s spoken word version of Rocket Man at full volume while watching CMEpalooza.
Can I watch CMEpalooza at the office?
Can I watch CMEpalooza at home?
Can I watch CMEpalooza in a conference room with 150 other people?
Can I watch CMEpalooza while at a coffee shop?
That depends. Will you be drinking a skinny latte while watching? If yes, then no, you may not watch CMEpalooza Fall while at a coffee shop.
Can I watch CMEpalooza with Magic Johnson?
I don’t know. Let’s ask him.
I guess he’s busy.
Do I have to pre-register or register?
Do I have to pay anything to watch CMEpalooza? 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 come to your house and perform his new one-man show for you, Game of CMEpalooza Thrones.
Can I get a certificate for watching CMEpalooza?
Actually, yes. Well, kind of. We’re not accredited or certified or anything like that, and we have no way of verifying whether you actually watched any of these sessions or not. But if you want a certificate of completion that you can use to self-report participation in CMEpalooza Spring 2019, here you go. I’ll also post it on the LIVE page tomorrow.
How do I ask questions to the presenters?
Good question. There are three ways you can ask questions:
- Send a text to the ASiM text line at 267-666-0CME (0263)
- Tweet a question using the #CMEpalooza hashtag
- Click on the Google Slides link on the LIVE page and enter your question there
We always get to as many questions as we can throughout each presentation.
Do I have to watch all the sessions?
YES! No. Watch what interests you.
Will the sound quality for each presenter be crystal clear with consistent volume and no glitches?
No. Will it be pretty good for most presenters? Yes. There will be some who sound better than others. There may be a few glitches and hiccups. That’s just how it goes with a free conference where presenters volunteer their time and use their own equipment. Some people aren’t comfortable doing a presentation while wearing headphones and a mic, so we don’t force them to use it. We do the best that we can with what we have available to us. That said, there seems to have been some improvements within Google Hangouts this year, so perhaps we’ll get lucky
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 each 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.
