Won't be able to make it to the San Francisco Tiki Crawl? Watch it LIVE on Tiki Central!

One of the biggest problems with having an official Tiki Central Event like the crawl is the fact that only a very small number of the Tiki Central Ohana are able to make it, and everyone else is left to look at pictures and read summaries about it a few days later. But this year I am pleased to announce that for the first time ever the San Francisco Tiki Crawl will be webcast live on Tiki Central so that everyone can join in on the fun, even if you can't make it! All four days and all locations will be streamed live, running here on Tiki Central Shout.

Tiki Central started on the web by people who had never met, and the first Tiki Crawl was a way to bring some of these people together in real life. On the very first Tiki Crawl, I attempted to broadcast the event using a wireless modem and a webcam -- no audio, and just still images changing once every 30 seconds. It barely worked, and we gave up on the idea about two stops in. But this year, thanks to technology and services provided by Justin.TV, we will have a completely mobile webcasting setup that should operate everywhere, for all four days of the crawl. We're talking full audio and video. Like YouTube, but better quality, and as it happens live. We hope to have the video stream running inside of Tiki Shout, and on the Justin.TV website. If you can't make it to the Tiki Crawl, I encourage you to make yourself a drink, sit down in front of computer, and check join in on the fun virtually. It won't quite be the same as being here, but I hope this allows more people than ever to join in on the event, see the interiors of some of the greatest Tiki Bars in the world, and see your fellow Tiki Centralites party it up at Tiki Central's official event. And of course, those watching from home will be able to chat and shout with other online members!

Furthermore, the crew from Justin.TV will be joining us at the Bamboo Hut stop on Friday's leg of the crawl. They have been very generous in getting a complete mobile rig for the Tiki Crawl! If you're coming to the crawl, seek out the webcaster (whoever is wearing the mobile webcasting gear) and say hi! And if you're camera shy, don't worry ... it will be very easy to avoid the lens. I look forward to seeing you at the Crawl!

More details to follow as to where to go and what to do to see the live Stream. The crawl is just a few days away!

Mahalo!

~Hanford

Hoo-rah!

Tiki Crawl TV? Kudos for the efforts, HL. I don't know how it all works, but it sounds good. It will be great to rush home and watch myself on tv. Although I am not sure if my cable package carries this particular channel, plus my VCR is stuck on 12:00.

Less virtual reality more ritual virility!

I got my rainbow clown wig and John 3:16 sign. I'm ready.

Video killed the...

PS I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize in advance for whatever it is I will do on camera later that will require this subsequent apology I am now making on a pre-emptive basis.

Wow wow wow!!! Way to bring it on Hanford! This is the type of technological trickery that makes my head buzz! A brave new world awaits the adventurous. For the not so fearless or geographically under privileged you can watch from the safety of your own home while watching zazz zombies, nutty natives and maniacal monkeys get loose in the Bay Area wilds. Live no less. History in the making I predict.

I can't wait!

What'll those crazy kids think of next?
Seriously Hanford, this sounds really great. I can see this spawning simulcast Tiki Crawls across the nation, all watching each other on our iPhones or something.
Aloha,

Very Cool Hanford! Thank you. To all you camera shy TCers. wear a mask but say hi to everyone. Looking forward to seeing the Tiki Central Crawl in living color! (Uh,if it is color that is)
Let's not have any flashing either, it will not be tolerated. However it will be graded.

I'm super excited 'bout it! Hey Hanford, will you be able to record the stuff and sell it on a DVD after?

HELL-O! How cool is this? I mean, I'll still be in Texas wishing I was in Alameda but at least I'll be able to see some of you kids!

Will there be any way for the crawlers to know who's watching so we can virtually say hi to each other?

DVD: Probably not. It's a live stream that is sub-TV quality, and unless someone wanted to edit it down, it would be many, many hours long.

Know who's chatting: Due to the way the mobile unit is set up, it will be difficult to know who is watching. However, I am looking at some tricks we may be able to pull ...

A new North American long straw drink record is sub-TV quality? Plus, there was the five alarm Ohana Hut blaze. This is video gold I tell you. Gold.

I think you may win a Peabody for this, HL.

Good thing we can edit out that bathroom footage. Right?

We should have routed that 8 foot straw directly to the bathroom!

Fun last night. I had to log off around 11 my time but it was fun to see a lot of you live! I'm sure I'll miss it all tonight since it's opening night for me.

Here's a suggestion....
How about if a few of you have your cell phones and/or let the bars know that people may call in? I tried to call one location last night and they never picked up.....Looked like a fun time!
