BILL BORSARI TO WEBCAST AMIWEST 2007
We've always been excited to have Bill Borsari and his UGN team webcasting
our show. There are a few new things in the webcast this year, so I'll let
him explain. Here is his message, just received a few days ago.
"UGN to webcast Amiwest 2007
Hello friends and fellow Amigans. I’m happy to announce that the UGN will
again be webcasting the AmiWest 2007 show on October 20th and 21st.
We are especially excited this year as it marks the 10th year anniversary
of Amiwest and will be the 9th consecutive year we will have brought Amiga
users all over the world the Amiwest experience. Like in years past we
will offer a webcam, dual audio streams and a video stream.
The broadcast will begin at 6:45 PM PST on Saturday October 20th with
coverage of the banquet and continue at 10 AM Sunday October 21st with
coverage of the show floor till the end of the show.
Two new things for this year:
1)We will be working with the Amiga Round Table (www.amigaz.org) to help
out with interviews and hosting of portions of the audio after the event.
2)We are also inviting Amiga Users from around the world to participate in
a new way for this show. Since it is the 10th anniversary of the show we’d
like to invite folks to create a show audio message, about a minute, with
their favorite Amiwest or Amiga Memory to be broadcast during the show on
Sunday both to the show floor and over the internet. This way everyone can
have a chance to share with all of us at the show a little something
special. Please be sure to say your name and location with your message
and while I’d prefer English it is not a requirement. Formats accepted
will be .mp3 or .ogg, check our website for additional details.
Finally since children may be listening to the broadcast and present at the
show, please use appropriate language. Once you’ve created your message
just email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, be sure to tune in Sunday to hear
your memory played on the air.
For the latest news and information how to tune in and participate please
visit the UGN home page at ugn.amiga.org. Don’t forget to thank our
partners too! www.sacc.org www.amiga.org www.amigaworld.net www.amigaz.org
