    FEEDBACK WANTED on press conference coverage

    Fanatic --

    I want your opinion on something. Every week, I transcribe CPR's press conference. I don't mind doing this, but it takes FOREVER. I just got everything ready so now, I can post the presser in audio format.

    Which do you prefer? The text or the audio...or both?

    If I were to stop typing out the entire presser, I'd have a lot more time for features, analysis etc. Just picking your brain here. Please give me some constructive feedback. This is your site.

    Re: FEEDBACK WANTED on press conference coverage

    I never read it, and would probably listen to the audio if it was there...

    I usually watch it on cyclones.com. Audio should work for those that don't want to go there.

    Re: FEEDBACK WANTED on press conference coverage

    I prefer the text personally because I can't really listen to the podcasts or audio when I'm on the computer in my lab. You do a great job with everything concerning this site though so do what works for you.

    Re: FEEDBACK WANTED on press conference coverage

    I don't think I've ever read the entire transcript. I think a recap with some analysis of the high points would be enough for me.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Re: FEEDBACK WANTED on press conference coverage

    I read it, but honestly, any quotes from him in the presser that are worthwhile, you or any other media member are going to have in their stories. I say toss it out.

    I don't pay a cent for the best Cyclone site ever, so I say whatever makes life easier on the guy that owns the shop is the best course of action.

    Re: FEEDBACK WANTED on press conference coverage

    Thanks for your input. Today, I'm going to try posting the audio and then I'll write a column featuring what I felt were some of the highlights. We'll try it out this way for a week and see what you all think. Thanks again.

    I bet there is at least one person on here that would type it out for you in exchange for coupons.

    Re: FEEDBACK WANTED on press conference coverage

    Agreed with others above- audio and written highlights would probably be good enough.
