The Weekly Daily Giz, formerly known as the Daily Giz Wiz, is changing again!
Starting with the 1st broadcast, which was live from the TWiT Brick House, on Tuesday, July 24th, it will simply be called The Giz Wiz.
The format will still be loose (formless, even) but they'll something different about it. Rather than Leo and I taking all the glory (ha!) we're going to let you, the listeners and viewers, share the glory (blame) for the show. Yes, we want to incorporate your videos, your thoughts, and even some of your gadgets in the new netcast!
Here's what we're looking for:
Videos -- two to three minutes along - in the following categories:
I bought a piece of crap! Did you buy something you ended up hating? We won't get you a refund, but we might be able to give a platform to vent your disappointment. Remember, "family friendly" language applies.
I Invented This! Do you invent something? (Or did a friend or relative invent something.) We can't market it for you, but we can help get the word out. Show us what it is, and how it works. Even if it's a prototype, you can get our (and the audience) reactions.
My Gadget Warehouse! Okay, so you don't have a warehouse. It doesn't matter. Just tell us about your favorite old gadget. When and where you bought it, and why you're still hanging on to it.
Post them on YouTube and send us the link! We'll do the rest.(Or possibly nothing, but that's unlikely.) Remember, video should be just 2 to 3 minutes long. Low production value is fine. Even welcomed, so our stuff doesn't look too bad by comparison. We've set the bar low. Don't trip over it.
An important note from Lillian Banchik, Dr. Mom in the chatroom regarding video submissions:
Just a quick comment/suggestion. I was checking with Jason (Giz Wiz producer) to see if the production quality of the video I did was crappy enough & he said that he'd never got the e-mail with the link. I'd used the 'share video' e-mail link from inside YouTube & apparently that address is being stripped out by their spam filters. I sent another direct e-mail from my own account & he got that fine so you might want to add to your blog post not to use the 'send e-mail' button directly from the YouTube page to send in videos.
Thanks, Lil, you actually just told them!
Suggestions for the show? We'd like them to!
We even have a producer now, Jason Howell. Yep, we're spreading the blame on everyone! (Let's see if Jason's career can survive producing a show this low.)
