AW: moinho @ openplug 070419

Hey Qua,

thanks for your nice words. 
I think there are a few interesting things here:
First, this allows the performer to play at an event which happens at a 
venue (which, in this case, was only a few kilometres away from me, but in
the case of the 060430 gig with Krispen and Rick, they were some 6000 miles
away from the venue - see below) without leaving his home - without having
to break down and set up and break down and set up again, being able to fix
himself a drink, talk to the video audience and explain what he is doing,
taking a phone call or even have dinner, without the audience at the venue
being aware of these "etracurricular activities".

And today's technologies (in that case, a cheap webcam and a service like
google video) allows us to make something like that visually available to
the viewing public - like you.

As a matter of fact, we have been doing such internet realtime 
thingies for some time, look at


the biggest one at the y2k6loopfest http://www.y2k6loopfest.com/ninjam.html

and independently, www.t-u-b-e.de have started something like that
independently some time after we did.

And yes, I also believe (and hope) that these activities will increase in
the future.

Feel free to contact me via email if there are any questions left!
