iReport roundtable: Thursday at 2:30 p.m. ET


The roundtable is back! This one is going to be very special.

We expect to have several iReport award recipients and nominees in attendance. We also hope to hear feedback from many of you who were either present or watching from afar this past weekend. We all enjoyed the chance to meet and speak with all of you, and thank you for your contributions to iReport. We'd love to hear your thoughts about this weekend.

We also have an announcement to make, and we'd like to introduce you to a new member of the iReport team.

We've taken a bit of a summer break but the roundtables will continue on a monthly basis (with another roundtable coming July 26).

We hope you can join us today at 2:30 p.m. ET here on the iReport blog. See you then.

My favorite thing about the weekend is that I didn't notice any wallflower moments where people were sitting off to themselves.

It seems like everyone enjoyed each other's company and had a lot in common. People seemed to just strike up conversations with whoever they happened to be sitting next to at the moment, which was really fun to watch.

As zdan mentioned we are still hard at work on the iReport debate, of which health care is a major part. We encourage you to participate here.

Oh..one quick question...I asked it over the weekend, but no clear answer..

 

Will there be a place on iReport for producers of CNN tv to note they are going to use an iReport or did use an iReport during their segment?

 

I think this is a big deal for some iReporters that can't watch CNN all day to let their friends and family know when their segment is coming up.  There needs to be something in place.  You know what I mean?

@nsaidi - uStream's chat room has been pretty easy to use in my experience and doesn't have long lag times usually.

That's a really good idea MelissaF. We're trying to find a good way of doing that. We don't always here in advance when an iReporter is going to be on TV, but we are trying to coordinate that more so we can leave notes.

So great to hear from so many of you today. Any last minute questions for us? Thank you!

You know it could be as easy as just leaving a comment on the actual iReport..so that way all the need as a CNN staff id on iReport like all of you do.  Just kind of a courtesy thing.

@AKistler Thanks for the suggestion. Do you think a video format is the way to go?

 

If we had video chats, would you want to participate? Or were you thinking more of a video-and-comment format?

 

Just curious what you all think about the structure as well as the platform.

@melissaf that's a nice idea, we'll add that to the possibilities mix!

The only thing the iReport Awards truly needs next weekend is an action-packed trailer advertising how cool all the nominees are as they fly through the air while firing guns and are completely unaffected by the shockwaves of a car exploding behind them.

 

Just saying. Also, there should be a robot.

Thanks @sarahbrowngb..

 

Again thank you to everyone at CNN and iReport for a remarkable and ultimate life changing event for me.  I was serious in my acceptance speech...because of iReport I changed my major in college and started my own production company. 

 

A few have said iReporters are glory hounds and attention getters...for some yes...for me...It's a way to get my pov out and have a voice in this huge spectrum of life.  I am so happy today that SCOTUS upheld Obamacare that I campaigned for and put many iReports up.  I am part of the conversation..that's why iReport!!
