Discussion media worth investigating
One week ago I was invited to participate in an on-line debate, chat if you will, using a new media called VONVO. The name is derived from CONVERsation so perhaps that should be CONVER. As a former Australian I immediately thought of a wheat flour biscuit topped with a strip of pink fondant either side of a strip of raspberry jam and sprinkled with coconut (see illustration) that were brought out, only, when visitors were around.
It is, however, a new technology that allows up to four participants to have a public conversation. There are bugs. For example, if two or more talk at the same time no one can hear. But in all, it is quite a step above those long Facebook arguments.
I would be delighted to receive any feedback about the technology and my performance. In case you had any doubts, I’m the one defending Israel.
