StreamGeeks Summit: NYC Live Streaming Conference Will Be Funded

Only 10 days to go on the StreamGeeks Summit: NYC Live Streaming Conference crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter! I’ve enjoyed watching this crowdfunding campaign progress. It is a clear demonstration that a crowdfunding campaign does not need a tremendous number of backers to be successful.  Almost 200 percent pledged as of this morning, the project will be funded at 12:39 pm PT, on October 4, 2019. I personally chose to back it early on because I loved the idea of using crowdfunding to promote and help fund a technology conference. In the end, I’m confident the crowdfunding campaign success will add to conference credibility. In this particular instance, I also have had the opportunity to take several classes offered by Paul Richards on the Udemy platform. He is an excellent instructor who makes learning fun.

Awakening to a New Twitter

Monday morning, August 13, 2019 ~ Shortly after sign on, I browsed Google News, found an Inc. article on Barnes and Noble, and shared it to Twitter. The share option invited me to look at my Twitter profile. Realizing I’d not visited Twitter directly in a while, I clicked on the link and was I ever surprised! Here’s what my profile page looks like now:

Wow! I do like the dark background. It makes reading so much easier. Sadly, I don’t have time to explore the new features at the moment, though. I’ve got to move on to Facebook, where I admin a slew of groups needing maintenance. I’ll be back to Twitter soon, though. This new “look and feel” definitely draws me in.

At this juncture, I just can’t afford to spend much energy on Twitter. If the site I visit provides an excellent “share to Twitter” option like Inc. Magazine does, then I’ll use it. I’ve pretty much got to rely on that for keeping my Twitter account active at this time. I will be back to Twitter regularly soon, though. I’m confident of that one.  Meanwhile, see you in one of my Facebook groups. 🙂
