Eric streamed live from the studio while 3D Printing some new parts.
For some time now I have been working to lay the groundwork for our own networks and community collaboration tools. One piece of that I had planned was our own TV network for broadcasting our content live 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Back in May I set up the MKME Live YouTube channel (separate from the MKME Lab and MKME Media channels). This week I finally had enough funds to purchase the PC hardware needed to get the channel up and broadcasting!
The channel is up and right now is broadcasting all the archives from the MKME Lab YouTube channel. Certain days I will devote to certain topics (today is RC Saturday with all aircraft and drones/FPV videos)
As time goes on I will hopefully have content created by others in the MKME Community. The channel will become a tunnel through which we can all reach the world.
I have many more plans under development. Stay tuned!
I thought it time for a quick update and share some things going on with the YouTube channel and MKME Community lately.
The last few months have been extremely busy. A lot has gone on in the “background” and I’m excited to say that the next few months should bring more updates, announcements, new initiates and video development than any time in the history of the MKME community.
Sometime in late Q3/early Q4 2016 you will see this work start to be published. As always, it will involve all community members as often as possible. I truly love where things are headed thanks to all you amazing people out there. Full details will come as I pass through some of the “gates” required to make my plans a reality.
I have also updated the store with new product lines and a new back end interface to Amazon which should make finding project parts and components easier for those interested. Many times people ask for an Amazon parts source as they do not trust eBay- the MKME store fills that gap.
I’m currently travelling on business in Europe and due to some circumstances beyond my control- two weeks of videos cannot be published. Once I return next week the normal schedule will resume.
Huge thanks to my Patreon supporters who make the MKME Lab videos possible. Thanks to your support I have invested in the full Adobe software suite which will enable me to create higher quality content for the channels. The monthly payment for the Adobe Suite would not be possible without the support of people like you.
Its been awhile since an update and I just want to say a HUGE thanks to all you out there in the MKmeNation for all the support you have given me. Every day I get to interact with many of you via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. You guys are simply AMAZING!
You can also hit me up on Persicope @mkmeorg Snapchat @mkmeorg as well as Meerkat @mkmeorg
Some exciting things are coming up for the community very soon. I’m excited to say the Tech Talk Live shows will be starting up in the next 2 weeks. Some changes are in the works for the format of the show and content as well. This year should be the best yet!
Huge thanks to all you out there supporting me on Patreon. You guys are simply fantastic. For those not aware you can support the community for as little as $1 and receive access to an exclusive video series only for supporters as well as early access to the YouTube videos before they are made public.
Updates soon on the new collaborations I have in mind with all of you out there in the community. Join the next live show Sept 21st right here:
