So, kittehz.

As you may have noticed if you’re watching the endmyopia Tubes of late, we started doing video chats with participants. ¬†Jaaaaaaaaaa. ¬†Discussing improvement reports now going beyond just posts in the Facebook group, and lazy copy-paste jobs from my inbox.

There’s this playlist I made, to keep track of these new chat formats.

It’s definitely a whole lot more work than just throwing up the usual quick post on gains reports. ¬†Though judging by my folder of ‘improvement reports waiting for posting’, an old guru has definitely grown weary of doing the same old thing over and over again. ¬†We have so many hundreds of improvement reports I haven’t posted yet, and to be honest … we have so many online already, it’s starting to feel the tiniest bit redundant.

So a certain be-bearded (just like be-spectacled but with beard fur) old dummy thought to his-self one day, why not make this more interesting?  Or perhaps, just more complicated?

Of course this way requires me to dig through e-mail improvement reports, find appropriate ones, e-mail them, come up with a schedule that works for everyone, find a place that’s quiet and has good internet to record, do intros and edits and upload. ¬† And that’s not even starting with everyone having to overcome any trepidations about being on video, about fitting stuff in their schedule, all participants actually making these happen.

Definitely a dozen more steps than just copy-pasting an e-mail improvement.

But it does have way more impact, doesn’t it? ¬†

Here’s Megan:

Really, truly enjoyed this chat.

So many details here we wouldn’t have gotten, if not for a two way dialog. ¬†Plus, being humans and all, it seems that text on a screen doesn’t do communication that much justice. ¬†Sure it was very useful in a time before video and Internet was possible. ¬†Now we have this ability though to record our thoughts with so much more context, and we need to take advantage of it.

Maybe. ¬†Or let’s see how long the beardly ambitions last for this one. ¬†

Let me know if you find these useful, and I’ll do my best to keep them going.

Cheers,

– Jakey, Videography and Scheduling Department
