I just want to add that the overall project should be a big source of pride for you.
From concept to completion (actually the beginning - if you consider the purpose of mentoring) you have created a unique challenge in which the entire group participated. The commentary on the boards was just a way of "filling" the breaks, and like everything else; sometimes it's hard to be patient when the months of waiting boil down to only a few hours. As to not explaining the webcast situation, I think had everyone known beforehand that the priority was the TV production, maybe things would have been less harsh. The concept of the webcast (at least from my perspective) was that we would be "insiders" for a couple of hours and would be included in this superb concept. However, as the audio was cut and the "mystery disappearances" came and went with only vague referrals to "at a later date" some might have felt that the spirit of the concept wasn't achieved. In retrospect, the need for absolute television production value outweighs any and all bitchin & moaning
that might have been happening on the boards and in fairness, there was
mention of a tv broadcast late in the event, but never any confirmation that I heard. Anway....congrats on the success of the project. We all sincerely appreciate your involvment here and make sure you don't give Brian all the goods
....so we can have a part II.
