So I have this idea of doing a monthly YouTube video.
"PARTY!!!" you all scream at the top of your lungs! You're all a bunch of cynics, and frankly I'm amazed I'm friends with you, because I'm not cynical at all.
Anyhow, here's my idea: you all anonymously submit questions via Google Moderator, and I'll answer the top ten in a live-to-camera video for YouTube. I won't do this via YouTube Live, because I'm not a complete idiot (present evidence to the contrary), and I reserve the right to edit gross mistakes and mis-management. So it would be sort of an AMA, only theoretically more fun.
Anyhow, I would prefer the questions cover subject matter I know something about (electronic music production, user interface design, esoteric control methodology, Audio Damage products, music publishing, making things, earning a living in the music business, touring, that sort of shit) but whatever gets voted to the top, I'll answer.
If it's fun and cool, we can make it a regular thing. If it's not fun (for me) or cool (for you) or generally retarded, we won't. But it can't hurt to try, right? I have made a Google Moderator page here. The questions won't appear in the list until I've allowed them, which means I'll just delete anything truly stupid, so don't bother asking nonsense.
If you have any ideas of how to make this come off better, or examples of how it's been done well, feel free to comment/criticise.
EDIT: Voting is closed. Filming now.
