Ok, so I've put this off long enough. I even said I wasn't going to do a TavernCamp event because of the virtual nature of it. However, people are STILL suggesting that I do it despite the fact it's virtual. So, here is the official forum thread to discuss ideas.
My original thought if I were to put this event on would be to do a one hour show each evening between Mon-Friday the same week Virtual WordCamp takes place. However, I believe it would be more beneficial for me to do it on the Weekend and introduce an entire schedule of speakers/interviews. One thing that has lacked as most WordCamps is information strictly related or tied to WordPress. That would be a major goal for this event, to primarily discuss WordPress topics with people or get one hour interviews with people from the various projects such as WordPress MU, BuddyPress, bbPress, IntenseDebate, PollDaddy, Gravatar, anyone who could provide an audio presentation on WordPress would be good. Ideally, I'd like to close out the event with a one hour interview with Matt Mullenweg to relay the State Of The Word. Only fitting right?
I think Talkshoe fits the bill quite well for putting on an event like this despite the technical snafus people have experienced with both the Pro and Web clients. Ideally, I would love to have a mixer with the knowledge in place to do the initial interviews over Skype so the audio quality is better while still being able to tap into the interactive nature of Talkshoe. I'm in the process of talking to a few people regarding getting a mixer and how I could pull this off.
The fee to attend the live recording on Talkshoe and to access the archived files would be $9,999,999.95 for all slots. Ok just kidding, it would be free. Everything regarding the event would be free unless TShirts or some other weird thing happens but if I do TShirts, I'm not going to be taking money for those Tshirts and instead, will go through a third party to design the shirt and have it so people buy it through them and they ship it. I have a great idea for a logo to put on the front of a Tshirt so if this pans out, I would order one for myself :)
If I do put this event on, I have to make sure it's manageable and does not get out of control. Really the only thing I think I would have to worry about is getting everyone scheduled.
Ok, time for you to slam me with ideas, suggestions, volunteerism, etc.
