I have recently started to do webinars. I admit this is a bit belated but the thing that is most striking to me is how much doing a webinar is like doing live television. Granted, there are a lot of differences especially concerning the technology and scale of the enterprise. When I first started working in broadcast television in the late 70’s and early 80’s most of what we did was live. News, talk shows, specials were all live. At that time we had millions of dollars of technology and at least a dozen people on and behind the camera for every live broadcast. It was a big effort.
