Really neat idea. I am in. IT challenged but I could figure it out if Sal and Eric were game.

Not sure about video conference, that would be next to impossible with 50+ people.
But Twitch/YouTube livestream with chat, that is doable.
I responded: YES. Let's see where this goes.

Nonetheless, I agree with the statement above: Twitch/YouTube livestream with chat is the easiest. There is no way anyone is going to fit 50 to 100 of us in, and many people would be shutout.

I chimed in because I could not believe that just 20 people had responded. But I also know that they have to set aside a full day or more to do this, so I understand if they say no. I watch all of the Spyderco videos put out by retailers and Spyderco, so, I know who is leading the way and I'm impressed with the product. (I'd have double to triple the number of Spyderco knives that I have if I had the income.)

I'm pretty private, so I'm all in for a global appearance on YouTube by Sal and Eric, where we can chat back and forth would be fine. If you feel the need to share who you are with a fellow forum member, send them a pic.

Just to play Devil’s advocate here, do you guys not get enough of a chance to interact with Sal here on the forum? Given that several of you seem to have little to no experience with these platforms (which honestly in late 2020 during a pandemic is a bit surprising to me), it just seems like it would be fraught with IT glitches, not to mention some folks seem resistant to being seen “in person” online.

I spend a ridiculous amount of time on Zoom meetings on a weekly basis, both giving and listening to lectures, attending virtual conferences (I was supposed to be traveling to Hawaii this weekend for a conference in fact :mad:), and generally trying to keep my operation afloat that I truly don’t want to mix business with pleasure like this. But that’s just me... I just think it would be a whole lot of wish-listing poor Sal and Eric for a hundred variations of existing models. ;)

!!!YES!!!

Any reason a forumite with a Zoom pro plan couldn't just set one of these up and invite folks?

I have done some Trader Vic's zoom calls for tiki enthusiasts, and they are a blast!

I like the idea, but I also think the Twitch proposal seems more likely/easier. The added benefit of being able to watch the stream whenever it's convenient (past broadcasts), would be fantastic for anyone who can't make it.

...But in general, I'm all about high performance, Ergos, safety. That's why I've been accused of "deigning in the dark"...

Zoom and WebEx have recording capability.
