Created by music industry pioneer Steve Gottlieb, Shindig is a revolutionary platform for large-scale video chat events. The patented technology enables hosts to give a talk, be interviewed, or show multimedia presentations, to online audiences of thousands. Audience members can see and be seen by one another in a shared environment, and are free to engage in private video chat conversations with one another at the click of a mouse. Best of all, selected participants can be brought up to "share the stage" with presenters to ask their questions " face-to-face" before the entire gathering. In short, the dynamics of physical events at internet scale.
