A significant percentage, nearly 1 in 5, are interested in development tutorials and information related to development. I didn't expect quite that big a percentage, to be honest, but that's great news.
A few were interested in the business aspects of things, but the majority are mostly interested in either anything and everything or else information of interest to the end user.
So I've decided that I will do a weekly show. Given the responses and some further thinking about it all, I've been working on a draft schedule that I could mold each show around:
- Intro: 2 minutes of saying "Hi" and what the topics are for the show
- "The Week in Review": 3 minutes covering quickie like release related updates, progress stats and news headlines from places such as theDot
- "The Headline": 10 minutes on a topic I find interesting in the KDE and/or FOSS environment that week.
- "Feature of the Week": 10 minute segment showcasing a specific feature in a KDE application
- "Town Hall": 15 minutes of open Q&A with people in the IRC channel
- "Developer corner": 15 minute hands-on developer tutorial, covering a specific KDE coding technique or topic. May build some topics week-to-week
It's 55 minutes of material, which would give me 5 minutes of flexibility to keep it under an hour. I'm not sure if it's too long, though, and I should keep it to 30 minutes instead. But I'm such a babbler that I could easily fill the hour. If I'm to do a weekly developer tutorial, then there's no hope of a 30 minute episode. With the above schedule, though, you essentially get 25-30 minutes of "talk show", 15 minutes of "town hall" and 15 minutes of "developer corner". So it's kind of 3 shows in one, when looked at that way. I might even record them as three separate segments, though back-to-back, so people can just watch the parts they are interested in.
Anyways, other than a few details I'm still working out on the technical end of things, I need to know when to do it. As I would like some interaction on the show, it will be important to do it at a time when people will actually be able to watch it. =)
So I've put together a simple three question survey that will help me answer that question. I promise it's the last set of questions I'll ask you to fill out as I go through the deign process for the show.
