How great is all this tech! Following pre show, show and Post show like I am actually there when I can't be! Love Jeff, Tim and now BW getting in on the action- all the scopers! such great perspectives! love every minute-never had twitter or instagram until I won tix to the Mandela screening and was able to report back- now more than ever it keeps me connected! When they hit Europe it will be fantastic! thanks to all techies for putting in the time and effort! I know when i am at the shows I am only in the moment- but love to see and hear from those willing to work!

good post :) - maybe this could be a sticky, where anyone can post links to good u2-themed periscopers / meerkaters / mixlrers/ etc.

 

some you mentioned already who are doing pre-show / post show live chat things :

 

@timneufeld does the Crystal Ballroom post show chat #U2CB is a hashtag to follow for that

 

@jeffreinhart77 has been doing some great pre-show chat from the GA floor lately 

 

@_bigwave_ is where I will post a notification when I do a periscope - just started with this one, good fun, work in progress..

 

 

be good to know of any other doing similar

Just watched the replay of Bigwave's chat on the Crystal Ballroom Periscope. I found the topic of whether people were involved in forums previous to the new technology very interesting. I haven't been active online until this tour, really. I've peeked in some, but find the forums sort of boggish and hard to navigate. But look, I'm here now, lol! I was pulled in through a Facebook page to help find tickets to the shows, then invited to another group, found the CB, and now I'm here. But I was a Prop subscriber back in the day, joined U2.com as soon as it became a thing, and was never as involved as now. Really didn't use Twitter much except to post amusing thoughts and pictures to my immediate friends. Now I use it to find more U2 content, periscopes, mixlrs, articles, etc.

I guess FB and the CB are more immediate forms of social media. You don't have to search, it just pops up in your feed or as a notification. So much easier!

That's interesting, Koke-dera, please do comment more about the psychological/marketing side of it. I know a bit about what you're referring to.

 

All if these avenues to experience the shows in real time are fantastic. I so look forward to the meerkat/periscope notifications. Just imagine what technology is coming next!

 

It is paradoxical, though, the whole idea of being "in the moment" while at the shows as Bono has said, while we need those people in the shows to use their technology to bring it to those of us who aren't there so we can be in the moment with them. The band is simultaneously promoting and expanding the use of these technologies, and encouraging fans to not use their technology so much that they miss what's happening in front of them. The fans that are periscoping are somewhat sacrificing their own experience for us on the outside

Yes! Love that they're posted to YouTube. Trying to rewatch through periscope was so frustrating, because you can't forward through what you've already seen, and if you have to navigate away from the app for a moment, it starts over when you go back. I have no idea how you save them to post in YouTube, though.

You have such an insightful interview, BW.
