So you watched our wee video and we got you hooked. You booked your ticket and tweeted about it.
Now, wouldn’t you like to know what you’re going to be a part of?
We said Question Time meets Top Gear and that’s exactly what you’ll get; the studio-style proximity and humour of Top Gear with the quality of panelists and discussion normally associated with Dimblebot’s QT.
But we’ll take it a stage further and attempt to do what QT fails to do; in addition to questions from the audience, we’ll be taking questions and points of view from those who can’t be there via Twitter. We’re aiming for a truly interactive event.
The topic? Should comments made on social media sites be subject to legal action?
Good, huh? We reckon that will get some hot debate going for our guest panellists.
We want you to be able to quiz the best, and who better to discuss Twitter and social media legal issues than the first law firm in Scotland to use Twitter? We have Brian Inkster on the panel.
And if we’re going to be talking talking freedom of speech, we need someone well known and well respected in the media to share their views – so Matt Roper, STV’s digital news editor will be joining us.
Michelle Rodger, aka @tartancat – host of #themeet140 Glasgow – will be directing questions, challenging the audience, and including the 140 character Qs coming in via Twitter.
The whole event will be filmed by hosts 29 Studios, and thanks to the efforts of the film and editing crew who will work overnight, the video will be available to share online the very next day. We hope the discussions will continue, and those who weren’t able to join us on the night will be able to watch the video and join in the ongoing chat.
So, whether you’re coming along or not we want to hear your questions and points of view in advance – tweet them to @themeet140 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to seeing you there!
