    26. 26. Peers, Mentees, & Sources<br />
    27. 27. DooLow on Discovery<br />I told her ‘hey that was a good show you did and I’m thinking about doing the same thing’ and she encouraged me with like ‘yah go for it, do it and I’ll come and support you and whenever, just let me know when you&apos;re on’.<br />
    28. 28. BackSide on Community Leadership <br />It&apos;s not necessarily that I&apos;m a leader or that people follow what I do … I feel like there are a group of people out there that are kind of like watching what I&apos;m doing and saying oh yeah as a DJ this path is open for me to like do Yahoo Live, and this is something new, I like this, DJs can do this. So yah I&apos;m starting to realize that, definitely.<br />
    29. 29. Connecting with Fans<br />
    30. 30. DooLow on Timing <br />I had a show from like 6 to 8 that was the time on Thursday. But then depending on what how I felt, I would just run, I&apos;d just go. If people were involved, feeling it, I’d keep going.<br />
    31. 31. BackSide on Frequency<br />I try to do it once a week, but that’s one thing that I know I didn’t want to commit…I just wanted it to help what I was already doing.<br />
    32. 32. Connecting through Crowd Reading<br />
    33. 33. DooLow on Viewing Dance Floors<br />If I&apos;m doing a club scene, it’s basically reading the crowd. Basically I&apos;ll start off playing some music and while I&apos;m doing my thing I&apos;m looking and I&apos;m try to see who&apos;s giving me feedback by a head nod/foot tap. So I&apos;ll just keep going in that direction whatever style of music I&apos;m playing then eventually if I get them to the floor, then I&apos;ll just stay with that style and I&apos;ll usually keep them there until either they get tired…<br />
    34. 34. DooLow on View Counts<br />Well (laughs) now that’s a good one, because I look at the view meter. Because it’s just like radio. It’s like &apos;Ok&apos; if I have 7 people and I’m trying to get say maybe 20. I&apos;ll just keep fishing around, fishing around until my hits go up. And once my hits go up and they are steady. I just stay with that.<br />
    35. 35. Sly on Creating Community<br />I did a bit on the show, I called it The Sly National Convention….I basically put on some glasses and I put on a suit and I acted like I was running for president. Everybody in the chat room reacted to it really well. Basically I was just acting funny, acting crazy; you know people were on the cam tray and they had little signs like it was a convention. [Holding hands in the air as if he were holding a banner] They were saying &apos;Sly for Change&apos;…<br />
    36. 36. Connecting through Chat<br />
    37. 37. DooLow on Chat<br />Yeah, because you figure I got a couple of minutes before songs, so I’ll do it, I’ll take a question or two or whatever.<br />
    38. 38. BackSide on Needing Moderation<br />They&apos;ll go and they&apos;ll be racist and all sorts of stuff and just spam the room over and over again. And like, by the time you see it and you go, you know say I&apos;m DJing say I’m mixing a record and I go back into the chat room to say hi and and I see all this spam and all this lame stuff and I see who wrote it and I go over to the names to ban &apos;em or kick &apos;em or whatever and they might already be gone…I cant nessisarly be looking at the chat screen 24/7 and DJing. I just can&apos;t do it.<br />
    39. 39. DooLow on Kicks and Bans<br />You know you got those flakes out there that wanna come and make the fat jokes and the racist comments and you know I just hit the kick and ban and keep on going.<br />
    40. 40. Sly on Heckle or Die<br />It&apos;s a show, you know it’s like going to a comedy show. You go to any type of comedy show…you have hecklers…I say things and I do things to get to people for them to heckle. It interacts people. I don’t wanna be up there it’s just not my style, I like to get people going.<br />
    41. 41. Technology that Facilitates and Hinders<br />
    42. 42. DooLow on Video Continuity <br />What I wanted to do I wanted to show the video aspects of the song so I had like video in the box and I was showing the video and there was like some scantily clad, they weren’t nude, just scantly clad women…and in that 3 minutes I went from like 5 people to like 20. I mean the room just. And it was just all guys.<br />
    43. 43. Domicile<br />
    44. 44. BuzzKill on open expression<br />...but with Live I just play whatever I want to play and thatʼs where I get a lot of the inspiration like &quot;Oh that was amazing.&quot; And I&apos;ll write it down, I have a book, and I&apos;ll write it down and then I know these two tracks go really well together.<br />
    45. 45. BackSide on Ownership<br />Well on Live I can do whatever I want. Cuz I do have an audience to cater to but I really don&apos;t. It like all of the people that are watching me they are coming into my room. This is my domicile. I&apos;m gonna play what I want right now; what I&apos;m feeling. If you&apos;re not feeling it, get out of the chat room. Thatʼs how I feel about it. I&apos;m bringing you the show. I&apos;m bringing you the situation.<br />
    46. 46. DooLow on Visibility and Group<br />I guess they don’t think black guys do house music. (laughs) I dunno. But I&apos;ll have a low count. But if I switch to Hip Hop or some real rough hip hop or some reggae, it will go up. Because I don’t think there&apos;s a lot of DJs that do Reggae. But I try to touch them all.<br />
    47. 47. Sly on Media Space<br />It acts as the Sly Show channel. Thatʼs where The Sly Show channel comes into play. Because people are coming, were not on live, but itʼs a place for people to gather and for people to meet. Ok, itʼs like ‘he has good music, heʼs not on live, but this is a place that people could come too.ʼ<br />
