The Last Show of Season is here, and with it much hope and good works for the future. Things have changed with the show not being live broadcast for now, and we did enjoy the web based activity around The 1st Question while it aired as we played. The live audience in the StudioDome are the ones who are edge of their fingers and tips of their seats, playing with gusto.
The wealth of discovery during the month of August will have to be followed elsewhere, though the Herschel telescope has found the first confirmed evidence of oxygen molecules in space. Many people have told me they have uttered the words, “I heard it on The 1st Question,” and that is really what its all about – The chance to laugh and learn while saying – Really! Come ON! (and a whole lot more) in the public arena with friends.
The 1st Question is a great adventure into what the world is up to now as our continued fascination with life in all its forms continues. Treet.tv is also continuing and programming will evolve and change just as it does in traditional media. The only constant is change, and let me know who originated that famous quote, and there is a prize for you. What will not change and what is different than TV is the great give and take between the live audience in the show. The great show that The 1st Question is, truly makes it unique to Second Life, and will be ongoing with all of the segments, news and laughs. I invite all back to the Dome when we return in the month of September. There are bound to be lots of inventions, discoveries, economic meltdowns and various triumphs to cover.
This has been an amazing year of invention and facts, . We even had a few legends on the show. This Episode brings us to the last of the summer season. I wanted to wish everyone a great August, and also great props to those going to SLCC. Will see you in the Fall with a September Special. Stay tuned and please see PookyMedia for updates from yours truly.
Thank you! & Hugs
Lots of excitement going on in the Dome and beyond. The world of ConnectedTV will beat a path to our door, says my iPhone app called iPredict full of iWonder, Recorded Futures and Wolfram Alpaha's - You watch the 1st Question, and you know what I mean!
We have thought of what's next, and here is some recent news where treet is front and center, along with yours truly.

For The 102nd Episode we went all out and had fun decorating the Dome for the Ã¢â‚¬Å“HolidaysÃ¢â‚¬Â What is it about Halloween that allows us to answer a different part of our nature? Did I just hear a wolf? Ah that must have been Hydra. Our recent transformation has culminated in the episode where I got in touch with my inner elf. (I realize I have just been wearing human clothes all this time.) It's 30 minutes of fast and funny.
We have been over a bridge or rather a new arc in our programming which began with the 100th show, a memorable occasion for any production. Thank you to everyone who makes this possible. Hydra Shaftoe who is a great co-host , whose wit, strength and smarts are part of the show being so wonderful. Kat2 Kit and Emmo Wei who are the best opening act ever, and Petlove Petshop our Sound Director we couldn't go on without and the multi-talented robwag Soothsayer who helps run the show behind the scenes in too many ways to mention.
The 1st Question is a remarkable ride each week into finding out the different and incredibly interesting things that make up here and now, here and now. We recently celebrated the 100th show with a blockbuster panel of all-stars in a show that will not soon be forgotten for many reasons. The show had a panel of people who really know their way around the current media landscape. And if new media are of interest to you then the names of Robert Bloomfield http://www.metanomics.net/ Jonathan Salem Baskin http://www.jonathansalembaskin.com/ and Gary P. Hayes http://www.personalizemedia.com/ an AdAge Power150 global media-marketing blog, are well known to you, You might also have heard of http://www.appmarket.tv where our last panelist Natan Edelsberg writes, a great site for breaking news that anyone on the nexus of social media, mobile, TV, Virtual Worlds and games must read. It was an honor to have them on the show, from all over the world. An honor to have the recognition in pushing a new kind of audience participation game show out Ã¢â‚¬Å“thereÃ¢â‚¬Â points behind me. These are transmedia experts of the highest order.
The panel was respectively Beyers Sellars, Baskin Novo, Gary Hazlitt and Natan Pinelli.
-Beyers we know well from his Metanomics show which brings concise analysis and interviews (He had interviewed Noam Chomsky that day!) to the metaverse.
-Gary who has long been a part of Second Life (2006) has promoted this platform for major networks and brands. His blog is one to read to keep up with virtual and artificial reality and he is doing remarkable work with AR and digital storytelling with the global StoryLabs.us
-Baskin, the author of 3 books, Branding Only Works on Cattle (2008), Bright Lights & Dim Bulbs (2009) and Histories of Social Media, just published by SNCR Press. A great writer and intellect, he came into Second Life to do the show and had a blast.
-Natan is the founder of Natan.TV a curated team of expert students at NYU that offer social marketing, design and video services. And the winner of the Millennial Award he writes for appmarket.tv. He also came into Second Life for the first time to do the show and I am just thrilled to be able to show people what a great platform this is.
The show is a riot, we did celebrate afterward, 100 is a big number and every show has been fun. I reflect back to this show and it goes so fast, the hour, yet in order for The 1st Question to resonate with a larger audience, one that is also outworld, I have to face that very few people will watch a one hour game show. And the 1st Question is a game show, fun exciting full of humor. So when we moved to the Sunday time slot, we moved also into the future, where I'm more comfortable. Now the show has a chance to be seen by more people in the UK and Europe, and the slot fits well with other programming. A lot of folks have said they wished the show was longer still, but coming into a new age, this just makes more sense.
We have had two episodes in the new format. The 101st Episode had Sean Martin whose simboarding empire is going sci-fi, grafx Newbold of the incredible Inspire Space park one of the great destinations of Second Life & the remarkably voiced and talented TMUnderground radio show host Chris62 Greybeard of Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Weekly LookÃ¢â‚¬Â They went through a tough round of Yay Me or Nay Me, gave us some great words for Word-Up and aced the introduction of Inner Geek Competition, formerly known as Avataro Y Avataro. Its still the type Alpha personality game we love to play.
