Well we had our first test of using Livemeeting for a question and answer session. Seems when I posted the link here it was the "presenters" link so everyone attending was a presenter which made things interesting. For those of you who asked if we would be recording it the answer is "I tried" but most of the recording is black, sigh.
I did save the whiteboard with links and some notes on what sort to topics we should consider for future live meetings which I will cleanup so they are readable since some used the drawing tools before discovering the typing tool option. I'll post those over in the forum so you can comment or add to the links and topics if you choose.
For those of you who missed it we talked about workflow, how to use css better and some shortcut ways of doing things that might not be as easily discovered as you would hope. Anyway, we'll try it again sometime in the future after my new computer arrives since it is pretty clear that Livemeeting doesn't like the screen resolution or video card in this tablet. Hopefully, we will see you then.

Not long ago I obtained a Microsoft Live Meeting account but I have not yet had time to really learn how to learn how to use it. On more than one occasion I have discussed with Pat Geary and Tina Clarke the idea of hosting a Live Meeting where people can ask questions and get answers in real time.
So we would like to invite you to join a live question and answers session on Expression Web, this is a beta Q & A Session using Microsoft Live Meeting. If you have not attended a live meeting before you will need to arrive early and install the live meeting software if you wish to be able to ask questions using a headset or microphone attached to your computer. Note we strongly suggest that you use a headset and mute your microphone when you are not asking a question to avoid feedback from your computer speakers.
If you choose to use the web client you will be limited to typing your questions.
Note this live conference will be limited to a maximum of 50 attendees so I would recommend getting the software and installing it before the meeting starts to make sure you get a seat.
Note that if you use the link more than 15 minutes before the meeting you are unlikely to find anyone there.
When: Thursday, October 23, 2008 10 am Central Daylight Time
Where: Join the meeting. no more than 30 minutes before the meeting starts
To use computer audio, you need speakers or a headset. We request that you do not use a microphone unless it is part of a headset to avoid feedback into the system.
First Time Users:
To save time before the meeting, check your system to make sure it is ready to use Microsoft Office Live Meeting.
