What's so great about live streaming?

There's no edit button.

Whatever happens, goes online in real-time—live.

Viewers can engage and interact.

You can produce as many hours of content as you invest in live streaming.

After the fact, you can edit videos, curate, filter, censor, and re-upload your content as separate clips; in a more digestible format.

But post-processing is a time sink.

(Even when machine-learning-based tools—think Descript—help you out.)

What comes with live streaming, as with any other public speaking gig, is that, over time, you get more comfortable and are willing to ship content with fewer edits, and that's something I'm working hard to improve.

P.S. In case you missed it, I started live-streaming four months ago. For now, streams focus on machine learning, but I plan to cover topics related to creative coding, podcasting, design, writing, sketching, and workflow automation.
