I propose that we only keep these videos here for a “short” time. Just long enough that you can watch if you’re really interested. And then remove them to honor the ephemeral nature of the real-time engagement of those who did attend.
There’s been change recently as I’m stepping up to help Steve with the last-Sundays monthly calls, and I wanted to discuss changing video retention rather than simply taking action based on my ideas.
The history of all the calls is in, About the Campfires category
Last-Sundays calls — Steve has a ton of historical video from previous calls. They are publicly visible to anyone, but you’d have to have been on the email list to easily find them.
Second-Saturdays calls — I’ve not been recording the second-Saturday Campfires.
…and now we are posting Campfire topics (for both the second-Saturdays and last-Sundays) here in the Podcaster Community. These topics, and the embedded videos, are completely public. Anyone can find them via search engines or by browsing this platform.
I’d like to only retain a couple topics here, in the “Campfires” category of the Podcaster Community…
- You’d be able to see the topic for the previous call’s information and its video.
- You’d be able to see the topic for the next call with the upcoming information.
My thinking is that if you missed the call, but really are interested, then you can swing by and watch.
But at the same time, I’d like to not immortalize what anyone said or did as a permanent topic.
The dates for upcoming calls are set way in advance…
