Just yesterday, I announced my first live interactive broadcast on Ustream called “Ustream Tuesdays at 2:22!”. **It’s since changed to Write Time at 9, every Tuesday night at 9pm EST The broadcast was a great success, actually running over the original hour I had planned to almost two hours! It was far too much video to record, and I’m still working to get the hang of all the features on the site, but I did do a short 2.5 minute test video.

In the middle of the video, FedEx delivered a package of items I’d ordered from Exaclair (the US importer of the Clairefontaine family of products). Exaclair always packs their boxes with very fine, smooth packing paper, and I was always curious as to how it would take a fountain pen! Well finally I was egged on enough to do it, and….well…it is!!! ;) It’s a little grainier than my normal vids, but you’ll get to see me in my completely unedited form! It’s just a slight preview of my broadcast. What you can’t see in the video is that there is a chat feature where you can post comments and questions and interact with me real time. Very cool! Thanks to everyone who showed up and I’ll see you there next week!
