Okay, yeah. Yeah, I think that's a good start. I really enjoyed that.
Yes. Wonderful energy. I love it.
Yeah. So that's, that's great. I think the zoom now it's changed quite a few settings. So it used to be that you had to, like get the host to invite you to a breakout room. But I think now people can join whatever breakout rooms they want to, which is yes. That's why
I asked him in the beginning. Like, I don't know what it has evolved. But I'll just do what I need to. Yeah. Hi, Chris. Hi, pellet.
Hey, how's it going?
Good. Good to see you.
It's kind of nice. I've been living in. I guess I got zoom burnt out last year. And I was trying to do a lot of audio and kind of now living on clubhouse though.
Well, I feel like for the Android users like myself, I'm missing out or not, I
can invite you, I will give you the clubhouse hack for Android users, and I can invite you and set you up.
That would be amazing. Like, I feel I've missed out so much here.
Yeah, you will.
Yeah, I mean, you have Ryan, you have.
I will share that today. That's part of this masterclass is I'm gonna start backwards with kind of what's new, and how Android users can now join in, and then how we can best leverage this for action. Okay.
Hey, her. I'm going to tell you I'm missing home. I'm missing Texas. So.
All right. Should we get Okay. All right. Um, should we wait one more minute, or should we just go ahead and get started? Yeah,
I think I think that Yeah, I don't see anyone else joining right now. So. Yeah, okay.
Well, I'll start it's recorded. So I know her Chris, and Christoph. And I just want to welcome you all. Thank you for being here today. We have 15 minutes now 14, to kind of just talk shop on clubhouse. So I consider this not just a masterclass, but a nice exchange to answer questions. My name is Yvette. I'm based in Berlin. But I am from originally from Texas in the US. And I do have Native American and Mexican heritage. So I bring a lot of my experience to the table. I like to be a catalyst and I'm in love with being able to connect everybody. I think there's more possible, the more that we're inclusive. So today we're talking about clubhouse, and how that's changing the science communication scene. So I'm gonna just start with how many of you I feel free to take your video, your camera, turn it on, if you'd like. Um, and just so I know, can everybody just tell me where you're based? So I know kind of where we're covering geography, and I know who I'm talking to you so let me throw Michael.
Hi. I'm based in Oxford.
Oxford. Okay. Welcome. Chris you're in Salzburg? Yeah.
Yeah, I'm in Houston, Texas.
Texas girl so Kristof.
And I have joining here. I don't see your name. Down here. Do you want to join? Let us know where you're joining from?
I decided from Turkey.
A holiday. Okay. Welcome. Matt. How about junie. Okay, well, others if you want to. Oh, there you are. Remote Spain. from Spain. Okay. Welcome. And I don't see a name on the last person. So do you Ryan? Hi. I see your video. Okay, so we'll just continue. Welcome. And I just want to know are all of you on clubhouse? Already? I know her Chris Kristoff. Michael's not Ryan is not. Hallett. Are you on clubhouse and junie. I'm sorry.
Yes, exactly. I mean.
Okay, so I'm going to start with the latest. One thing is that I've been on since January. And yes, exactly. today. What I'm giving you is the latest is Android users. You cannot join by phone, but you can join by a desktop app called club desk. And that is for your desktop, whether your pc or mac book. If you are an Android user and you want to join, you can get this link, I will send it to you in the chat. And you need somebody with an iPhone, who is already a user to invite you still. So kiss off has him like I'm out of invites today as of like, five minutes ago, kiss off would have invitations, he can invite you. But the hard part is, it's not so easy as logging on. Someone with an iPhone has to give you an invite, and log you in for you on their iPhone, and then log out. And then you can log on to the club desk app on your desktop. And you're in. And also what we're finding with all the people have done that. We have to put your photo also when we when we sign up into your profile, and put your photo and then you can manipulate your profile once it's on the desktop. So has is everybody aware of that or I have 10 Oh, everybody's getting their invites. Okay. So for those of you with Android, let your friends know, let your colleagues know that it is possible, they just need to find an invitation someone willing to take about 15 minutes to live set you up. So you're gonna have a loving and caring person who wants to dedicate to doing so I mistakenly sent out 16 invites not knowing I had to set them all up. So I've had a long like two days. But I feel axes is important. So I'm happy to let me send the actual app, happy always to share that. And any updates. So since January, I'll grab the link for you in just a moment. And I might actually share more in the larger groups that everybody has it. I've been able to be on three admin groups for clubhouse work, one, the best thing to do is to plug into club houses, weekly Town Hall and Sunday, I don't know if everybody's aware, the founders do the town. And if you can't, it's put on YouTube recorded right afterwards. So even if you're an Android user, and you're not on yet, you can go to YouTube, Sunday, late night or Monday morning. And there's a YouTube video of a clubhouse Town Hall about two hours of video. And you get all the latest updates, what's happening in the club, and how to plug in. But I think this is going to really change things when the desktop app gets popular. We already see like a huge number of increase, or past the 21 million mark on there. So does anybody have any questions now feel free? Okay, so that's one hack right now is that getting people on and then the purposeful use of of clubhouse. So it can be addictive. It can take over your life because it also there are so many incredible clubs right now. So if you would do me a favour, if you have a club that you would like us to join that would help us to plug into your space community, feel free to put in the chat. One way to quickly get plugged in on that app is definitely these clubs. So I'm going to give you that one thing.
But the second thing is
what is purposeful engagement, right? I am one who is not led by social media. So I don't know social media ever dictate my life. When I am involved in clubhouse, I choose the clubs that I actually will I've rejected a lot because I choose those that I think are meaningful for action. And so the one thing I would say as well when you're in these rooms, and I've seen her and and Chris and Christoph do this, definitely have purpose. When you engage, I only engage in conversations where I think it'll lead to positive action. And I think you'll find that that really like increases the volume of who's going to interact with you your engagements, and then actually supporting your efforts off clubhouse. Has anyone here had something productive come from their clubhouse discussions?
Yep. Yep, I have.
Chris what was is it actually a project
moving into a project? It was out of that had a couple of interactions, you know, by text and then by email, and then you know, actual kind of zoom meeting for some stuff, so.
it's good. I guess the closest thing I would have is actually happened on clubhouse but a friend in Italy that I met on clubhouse wanted to have a q&a with just me. And so he wanted his Italian friends who didn't speak English to also be able to participate. So he got a translator. And so one night it was actually 10pm to midnight, two hours of q&a in Italian. And so that was that was kind of interesting. I'd never used a translator before. So they, they, they asked the question in Italian and then they asked me in English, and then I gave the answer in English and then the translator translated to Italian but I loved it. And and you know, I never would have done that if if it wasn't for that one connection and clubhouse.
Yeah, and crystal?
Well, first of all, I was, I was told the conversation yoga nice. So obviously, there was a tremendous writable output, because we are all trying to sort out viable business cases for space. But things which walk within a framework of concern, being aware and mindful, you know, our political associates or exit issues and new leaders conversation, Hey, where are our returns. Now, big secular friends have similar concerns. So what I like the efficiency of those meetings, compared to traditional social media is that we zero in on the durables. Now, a lot of people who are part of my French bullshit Cheers. So we just eliminate all the misconception. And even if you are very experienced, very smart, there are a lot of mistakes you can do and which can cost you a lot of time and money away. And this to me, very productive outcome, good food to the community, including you, starting with you, it.
Thank you. So thank you. So the club you see here on the slide are crisp with the ISU club didn't know that was done. So I will get on that today, the space agenda, and then the space creative club, the astronaut analogues club, and the space for all nations, please feel free to join. These are very active communities. One thing I see is that when you're in a community, for those who aren't on clubhouse, when you join in, when you go into a conversation, you choose where you go, you choose the rooms you want to be in, if you certainly don't feel a conversations productive, you have absolutely the right to leave quietly and join another or start your own. The beauty of this, like they said is you can talk about topics that you feel have been only rhetoric, and now they need purpose, or have only given lip service. And now you can put them into a project, you can pull in people and resources you never did before it right now, especially during the pandemic, I have access to Jim Green, NASA JPL. And now we host a conversation every Monday to really talk about science and engineering and access to everyone for that. So these conversations have led to I'm going to say what's happened working groups, slack working groups, telegram working groups. And it's serving to create, like Chris said, the nascent working towards active projects. And I find it absolutely purposeful in that way. I liken it to going to I see every year. And there's 1000 sessions. And I don't know which one to go to. So I have to prioritise. And if I don't find it productive, I walk out and walk into another one. If I don't find it productive, I walk out to another one. And then when I find the one where I can contribute, I can even raise my hand and talk. And then I can network and then I can build that. So I think the one thing about this is key is that this genuine, like herb said, genuine conversations around those things that matter and that you can actually put action to. And that's really important. I know that we're short for time. I don't know how much time we have left Ryan.
yet we're pretty much the so it's quarter two. Yeah.
There's so much I can give everyone so please feel free to email me because I do have a lot of hacks for how to build your community, how to build your profile, how to have meaningful rooms and how to moderate and how to promote for your club and your sessions. Certainly there's so much to gain from that community. Is there any burning questions is something you want to know even about? Heck, you want to know right now?
Well, I was just gonna ask how we contact you, but I see put your email there just for for everyone's attention. So So is are you happy for people to
contact? You? Definitely. Yeah. Um, and then when you are on clubhouse and you find me I have the same handle as on Twitter, and that's Gypsy. Not because without COVID I travel 90% of my time, so I don't really have I have many homes. But right now, I do a lot of my biometrics research the space for all nations one and the ISU I think those are critical ones to follow
Chris, are you hosting anything regularly?
I'm not, but I'm, I think I need to get into it. Because Because one of the things I find in Europe is that, you know, I'm constantly being told if there's a really interesting thing at 3am. Yeah. So there's lots and lots of American kind of timezone space related groups, but they don't work so well for Europe. And so I'm thinking of sorting some European ones out. I just basically need to get beyond this weekend. bandwidth. Oh, it looks like we
were out of time then. Going back. Thank you all.
Thank you so much. Yeah, I look forward to joining clubhouse.
Thank you. Take care.
