I have taken the time and made a decision to organize and (help) run a Delegate Hangout for all delegates who want to attend over the course of the next week. 

They will begin Monday and will end the following Sunday--a full 7 days of mayhem.  There will be two halves to each night. 
  • The first half will be from 9:30PM - 11:30PM EST. 
     
  • We will then break and resume 2:30AM - 4:30AM EST.   This should be good for those in China

This is done to help bring people on from different times.  If these times fit with your schedule, feel free to start your own event and use the Mumble Server Free of Charge, here: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=4150.0

Delegates will be given 10-15 minutes to answer the top 3 questions asked.  So ask them & vote on them here:  http://www.reddit.com/r/BeyondBitcoinShow/comments/2gdrql/submit_and_vote_on_questions_for_the_bitsharesx/

Delegates will then be given 5 minutes for audience questions...

All of this will be recorded and I will post it to Soundcloud unedited.  Delegates who wish to donate 1%-10%(Max) of their fees to BeyondBitcoinx, bitSapphire or CLains' Donation fund will be given First Slots on the Beyond Bitcoin Slate (as long as you are not doing anything crazy--like funding the Rothschilds).  Sorry if it sounds unfair everyone, but I have to stop paying these volunteers out of pocket! :P

*P.S.  I need a full time volunteer editor for the Multiple Elections we will no doubt have coming up...please consider volunteering!*
*P.S.  I need a volunteer to be a co-moderator (in the case I need to step away from the keyboard during these periods of time...please consider volunteering!*

Won't this unfairly favor fluent English speakers? What about our Chinese friends that may wish to be delegates? Will there be a way for non-English speaking delegates to answer the same questions but in text instead, so that they have the opportunity to translate it?

Edit: Great idea though! I don't want you to think my reply is negative...

It's a good point. If you translate some of the Chinese posts this feeling is already there. We need to find a way to include them.

The only issue is that I cannot speak mandarin.  I would realllly love to have someone from the chinese community who would do what I do on the server for the Eastern side of the world.  Maybe for this, someone could take up the torch and translate the Chinese Delegate's information?

Having a direct conversation with Chinese Delegates would be interesting.  I've always felt there is this weird divide because not many speak the other's language.  Chinese are so big in Bitshares. 

So there are some Chinese guys who work hard translating some stuff but since I don't know Mandarin I only have a vague idea who does it.  That is the best they get, translated English.  It is a very one way flow of information. 

It would be nice to get some of the audio stuff out to Chinese.  I am not sure the best way to do it, but inviting our Chinese friends to communicate with us would be a good start.

If we could find a Chinese translator who would actually vocally translate that'd be even more awesome and maybe appreciated by Chinese ?  They don't need to do it in real time either, so they can use audacity etc and take their time.  Seems like it would be a very hard task to translate all the stuff talked about, but just some of it would be a start.

Maybe we need an inter-community delegate. Someone who can use their pay to translate or who can organize translations.

I just feel that perhaps the Chinese would be appreciative of some attempt to give them audio content and respond directly to their concerns.  A delegate funding this would be a nice way to do this, but it requires someone arranging the whole thing.

I don't even think you could hire a regular translator for a lot of the more technical aspects.  I don't know this, but it seems likely to be hard to translate the really technical things without knowing the area first ?

I'm going to talk about some ideas for the delegate platform I'd like to run. I finally found some time to set up my VPS last night. Feel free to join if you want to chat / listen / grill me.  ;)

This is something I've been trying to bump up against personally in an attempt to try to bring them on.  I think it would be absolutely amazing to have the Chinese perspective. 

This is why I post in their board every hangout and have told some of the more active members they can always use the mumble server to start their own hangouts. I will continue outreach though :)
