I told Devin today that this blog was "all-purpose," and in an attempt to live up to that, I'm going to start a new and hopefully recurring feature, the Town Hall Roundtable. Basically, it's going to be the transcript of an AIM chat with a who's who of the e-fedding world. We chat in an AIM room, and then I transcribe it and post it here in a palatable form.
The first Random Ramblings Town Hall Roundtable's topic will be titled Stolen Bandwidth, Stolen Creativity: Alcaeus and Plagiarism in E-Wrestling. I have three panelists tenatively lined up. They are as follows:
Jon Katz (NFW fedhead, handles Craig Miles among others)
Lindz (handles Lindsay Troy in PRIME among other feds)
Pierre Hyde (AWC fedhead, formerly the handler of Tim Shipley)
Of course, the above panelists' appearances at the Roundtable are dependant on scheduling.
Anyway, I'd like to get a few more people involved, preferably from this list:
- A forum admin at PTC
- A non-fedhead member of a PTC fed
- HSW's fedhead
- A handler who has been the victim of plagiarism
If you fit any one of those descriptions, then feel free to contact me either by comment on here, or by AIM or e-mail. Also, please send me your availability both during the weekdays or weekends. Try to keep in mind that I won't necessarily be available to do this on a weekend, so if you're good to go on a weekday after 3 PM Eastern Daylight Time (which is *I think* four hours behind GMT), then you should have no problems fitting in. Anytime before 3 PM on a weekday is no good for me, unless it's on a holiday.
Remember that roundtable discussions are civil. If you volunteer to be a part of this first panel, then be forewarned that you should keep a calm demeanor with the other panelists, and be sure to keep an open mind about other people's viewpoints. The goal of a roundtable is to encourage discussion among civilized human beings with differing viewpoints.
