Our Pilot Series of Reboot Dialogues launched on October the 26th, at 16:00 hours (CET) with Chris Hamer as our guest, who joined us from Sydney to talk about supranational democracy and global federalism. This was followed by four further dialogues with guests from London (John Bunzl on Destructive Global Competition), Pisa (Roberto Castaldi on European federalism), Copenhagen (Lene R. Andersen on education) and Munich (Young-Jin Choi on carbon prizing and the idea of a climate income).
So far, we have attracted about 200 viewers (roughly 40 viewers on average per dialogue), but as these dialogues continue to be freely available for viewing on YouTube, we expect this number to increase over time.
As this is our first foray into live streaming, we have been on a steep learning curve. The fact that we are developing Reboot2030 without a budget only added to the excitement, as we were unable to buy in expertise and instead had to create our own low/no cost streaming infrastructure by trial and error.
Given our resource constraints and given also that we were absolutely clueless when we started, we believe that things worked out well. Encouraged by these results, we are now embarking on another period of development and hope to launch our first regular season of Reboot Dialogues in March 2022, again on Tuesdays at 16:00 hours (CET).
