Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Allen Levine, and it was almost a face-to-face meeting. We've both installed ooVoo video chat software on our laptops in preparation for the Larrylapalooza in Michigan next week, and we decided to give it a test run to make sure it works as expected. I'm here to report it worked great. Unlike Skype, the free version of the ooVoo software allows up to 12 people to be in the chat at the same time. (I believe you have to pay for the upgraded version of Skype to do multi-person chats with Skype.)
Allen was real glad to see me log in last night, because he knew right then and there that he wasn't the ugliest guy on the Internet. And you folks who will be meeting him in Michigan are going to enjoy his company. He's a fun guy with a great smile.
I encourage any of the rest of you who can't go to Michigan to grab a (free) copy of the ooVoo software and get hooked up. We're planning to do a video chat Saturday, September 8th at 8:00 PM Michigan (Eastern) time. PM Allen or me and we'll give you our contact info so you can join in on the festivities.
