Wanna get social? A Periscope Experiment

Always one to try something new...
It allows you to subscribe/follow anyone with a Periscope account, and those "content creators"/micro-vloggers will either start broadcasting a live event or use the medium to communicate directly with their followers.
So let's try this out:
I'll be "Periscoping" on Monday, December 14th at 8:00AM EDT.
Interested in giving this a spin? Here's what you need to do:
Download & setup Periscope
While you don't need to have a Periscope account and you could technically just watch the broadcast live (or replay if that's easier for your schedule) from my Periscope online profile via any web browser, there's enough great content on Periscope that it does warrant signing up.
Subscribe / Follow me at https://periscope.tv/christoohey
Again, not technically required, but you are notified any time someone you are subscribed to is broadcasting. Additionally, if you are watching the broadcast (or the replay), you'll be able to "Like" the broadcast, which helps spread the channel beyond the current subscribers.
More important than that, however, is the fact that - for those of you watching the live broadcast - you'll be able to instantly comment to provide feedback and make the broadcast truly interactive!
Topics & Feedback
Want me to cover a given topic, answer a particular question, or have any other feedback: let me hear it either in the comments or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Of course, as I mentioned, you could always leave feedback during the broadcast and we'll run with it from there!
Now, I don't know if this will be a success... but it never hurts to try something new. Hopefully I'll see you then.
