NEXT MEETING                

DATE:   Monday 18th March 2019
(ROUGOL meets on the third monday of each month)
SUBJECT:   Virtual Shows
PRESENTER:   Bryan Hogan, London show organiser

VENUE:   Upstairs in the restaurant at The Blue Eyed Maid public house, 173 Borough High St, SE1 1HR.

This month we will be discussing the hot topic of the future of RISC OS shows and user groups.

Chris Evans recently raised the idea on the ROOL forum of virtual RISC OS shows. This might be a website that would go live at a specified time, and would include pre-recorded and live talks, Q&A sessions (text or video?) and product announcements and special offers.

This would save exhibitors time and money that could be put back into RISC OS development, and it would be far more accessible to users scattered around the country/world who are not able to make it to a physical show. It might also catch the attention of a (younger?) audience who would not otherwise get to hear about RISC OS.

In a related discussion about recording/live streaming user group meetings, it was suggested that user groups should just be social get togethers rather than having speakers, and we should be trying to get recorded interviews on YouTube instead so that they can be seen by a wider audience. While having more RISC OS related content on YouTube sounds like a good idea, would this result in the death of user groups?

So come along to prove that ROUGOL meetings are very much alive(!), and put forward your thoughts and ideas for the future of RISC OS shows.

The usual arrangements

Admittance is free and everyone is welcome. All meetings benefit from video projection, so everyone should have a great view.

The Blue Eyed Maid is easily accessible by public transport from in and around London and the south east, and serves a wide range of hot and cold food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

To be informed about future meetings, please join the mailing list. Everyone on the mailing list will be kept informed of these and other ROUGOL initiatives.
