Can we have chat casts with professional designers?

For example we pick a certain technique in photoshop or a certain element in design and we pick the brain of the designer for an hour (or a play by play of how that designer would go about it)?

Would Jin (and other designers) be up for that?

I'd certainly be up for that. Given how very quiet the chat area generally is, it might give us a way to increase participation. If there's one thing lacking in the site currently -- it's inherent in the SE model, I think -- it's interaction. Time zones are a bit of a hurdle for real-time chat, but better something than nothing.

It would likely be more interesting and more useful if several designers participated in any given chat, rather than one. Everyone I know has his or her own way of approaching a given design challenge, and once you start talking Photoshop techniques, where there are a minimum of 10 ways to do almost anything, the more folks who are involved, the better.


I'd be happy to do this! I agree with Alan that it'd be nice to have multiple designers involved.


I bet if we ask nicely, we could get Jin, the SE designer, to do a chat with us. It could be a nice stepping stone. I'll ask around, see if we can get Jin in sometime. Anyone have a preference for what time to do it?

    Speaking personally, which is the only way I know how to speak, after the New Year would be best. We're up to our ears in project deadlines until early January. Dec 23, 2011 at 6:31
  • As for time, I prefer to avoid the 6 am to Noon (PST - UTC -8) time slot. Other than that I'm usually around, lo, even unto the wee hours. :) Jan 19, 2012 at 1:43
