Shindig.com Technology To Power Virtual Book Talk Show

Novelist Alan Goldsher has a new virtual talk show dedicated to books, thanks to technology from Shindig.com. Shindig.com is a NYC-based start-up that offers video chat tools that let users create large events online designed to function like physical events.

Goldsher’s interactive virtual event is called Book It. Essentially a talk show about books and publishing, the show will let virtual listeners participate as a live audience by asking questions to the author during a Q&A session. Like a physical event, seating is limited to the first 1,000 guests who register online. Viewers must register for each individual show. Follow this link to register. The shows will be archived after they have aired.

The show launches on Thursday September 6th and will run on the occasional Thursday through January 2013. Guests who are scheduled to appear on the show include actor/comedian Kevin PollakTime magazine’s Joel Stein, and authors Adam Mansbach and Jonathan Maberry.
