Ask an engineer Saturday night 10pm ET – 1/16/2010
We’re back in NYC! – “Ask an engineer” is Saturday night 10pm ET – 1/16/2010 and it is META night, the chat is about the chat! We’re going to spend a lot of the evening experimenting with a new multi-camera set up (3 cameras!), picture-in-picture and push pre-recorded video in to the LIVE stream. This is all in preparation for more features, segments and fun with our weekly show! We’ll still answer your questions and we’ll still have a give away, we’ll just be playing “live” with a lot of video stuff. Just keep in mind, it all might not work 🙂
Visit our new “chat” section on Adafruit at 10pm ET, Saturday nights
There will be a trivia question at the end of the night as always!
Lastly, if anyone can save a text log we’d appreciate it

Wow! Will we be seeing Ladyada, Adabot, and Mosfet at the same time? Not sure the internet can handle all of that at once 🙂
sweet! throw in a ticker at the bottom of the screen and we’ll call it an amusement park for my ADD 🙂
I tried to do that with some USB webcams and a piece of freeware called vhmulticam – framerate was too low to be usable, and the cpu hit was massive since I was trying to screencast as well to show how to do things. How do you find it? Are you doing to detail the set up at all?
Any chance you could release ask an engineer as a video podcast as its starts at 4am where im from.
