A few months ago we launched Product Hunt LIVE, hosting text-based Q&A’s with some of the world’s most interesting founders, investors, artists, authors, game creators, and makers. Today, we’re hosting our first LIVE VIDEO Chat powered by our friends at Blab. Now you can see your favorite makers answer your questions on video and if you’re brave enough, join them on camera to answer your question live. The animated and insightful @mazzeo will be our first PH LIVE VIDEO guest. Grab a seat here. This is going to be fun. :) P.S. I wrote a bit about how @ShaanVP, CEO of Blab, and I met a few years ago. I applied for a job there and got rejected. Full story here. 😊

WOW! I sort of figured this was going to happen when I heard @ShaanVP and @rrhoover talking on a Blab about email exchanges. This is a fantastic partnership and definitely going to bring AMA's to a whole new level.
@rrhoover Did you have to announce this on our launch day? It's my party and I'll cry if I want to :(
MakerPro
@alangarrec 😜 I think you'll do alright.
@rrhoover I took a screenshot of the brief moment we were ranking above you - something to show the grandkids one day...anyway I caved in and finally gave it the upvote it deserved. Is this all part of the new (super secret) PH? I joined the Slack group yesterday to try and glean some information but I couldn't read anything it was moving so fast (my computer nearly caught fire).

@alangarrec we'll share our super top secret beta with the group Wednesday (most likely). I hope you all like it. 😀
I Blab'd during my Product Hunt Live does that count as the first the Product Hunt Live Video? :)

@mubashariqbal Totally happened. :P

@brittanymetz @mubashariqbal this is true. You're a pioneer, Mubs.
@rrhoover Keeping up with the questions, typing and talking at the same time was tough! As least the folks coming on will have an easier time of it. This is awesome though, it will make it easier to be part of even more of these events now.
Congrats.... Video streaming and collaboration is nothing new but embracing new tech and integrating it into a plan to provide more value to your community is a ton of work and scares off most brands. Congrats and kudos as I'm a huge fan of the Blab team and this collaboration is great for the tech & live streaming space!
This is what I hoped PH LIVE would be when it launched! Great to see this, good job team.
@rrhoover - what was your first thought when we came to you with the idea to partner on using @blab to turn LIVE into LIVE Video?
MakerPro
@shaanvp I was immediately excited (although I apologize for the super delayed response... the few weeks after our launch were hectic) and Blab seemed like a great fit. We all wanted to support video from the beginning but of course we can't build everything. 😄
