Steve Garfield started off the meeting and explained how it’s a live twitter around the table. Everyone takes turns talking about what they are doing. They can ask a questions or do a show and tell too.

We give everyone 3 minutes and that makes things move quickly around the table. Time is loosely regulated so more time is given to people who need more than 3 minutes.

Steve then talked about how it’s video/day month at NaVloPoMo – Make a Video a Day this month.
