See You at My Party Tonight!
Plus: I'm Looking For Sources
Last night I had a dream that everyone who showed up on tonight’s Zoom was wearing ridiculous hats, wigs, costume jewelry, and make-up. The conversation was jolly but also intellectual, but like, not in a pretentious way? (I say this despite not remembering anything anyone actually said — it was just the VIBE.) You know where this is going, right?
SQUEEZE NATION, PLEASE HELP ME MAKE THIS DREAM COME TRUE!
Tonight please don your most ridiculous hat, wig, costume, makeup, jewelry or WHATEVER! And if dressing up for strangers is not your jam (understandable), or you’re trapped in a cubicle at work, no sweat — your beautiful presence will be enough.
Please note: I’m inviting 4,300 people to a Zoom with a 100 person limit. Honestly, if 100 people show up tonight I will be floored, but if people do end up getting shut out, I’ll do a separate
zoom party for them on a different date. And regardless of that, if the crowd is sizable, I will create breakout rooms for better discussion (I’ve never done that before, so if I knock you off the zoom, click back in!).
FINAL NOTE: as part of a sort-of epilogue thingie to my series about WNYC/Gothamist, I’m looking for sources who have knowledge of how “digital first” strategies are working for other public radio stations. If this is you, please reach out to me to discuss, even off the record. Thank you!
