If you are a regular listener to the show, you know we've been planning a live call in version of Church Tech Weekly for this coming Sunday, January 1, 2012. Since it's the first show of the new year, we thought we'd go all out and try something new. It could go spectacularly, or be a spectacular failure—it's anyone's guess! But we're going for it anyway. Here's how it's going to (hopefully!) work.

Sometime between now and Sunday night at 7 PM PST, add ChurchTechWeekly to your list of Skype contacts. Around 7 PM PST, log into Skype. Once you're online, send a chat message to us, and our producer, Katie, will add you to the group call & chat. If you can't make it right at 7, don't fret, join in when you can. 

Katie will manage the queue of callers and hand you off to the panel. Since we're not a big-time radio show or anything, we'll be merging the two Skype calls during the question asking process, so my only real request is that if you're not the one asking the question at the moment, please mute your mic. We reserve the right to bump someone off the call if they abuse it. Not that anyone would...

As a further disclaimer, we've never done this before, so much like the webinars, we'll be figuring it out as we go. We plan to test the set up in the afternoon, so hopefully things will be ironed out and working by evening. But you never know...

We have a great panel lined up for the show, and I know it's giong to be a fun time. If it goes well, we'll consider doing it again occasionally. 

So remember, this Sunday, Jan. 1, 2012 at 7 PM PST. Connect with ChurchTechWeekly on Skype and see what happens!
