At Davos , World Economic Forums, Robert was recording interviews on his cellphone and sometimes going live, using a software tool called Qik.
Robert was filming and interviewing guests not with a big video camera but a small Nokia N95 (no, the iPhone can’t do this!) mobile phone, that sent a live video stream of the interview to his website. While he was doing the interview, Robert saw live on his phone screen the comments and questions posted by his viewers. So in short he has his viewers participate in to the interview.
