Coinopspace chat with Steve Wiebe a success

Last night on Coinopspace.com Steve Wiebe dropped by for over an hour and a half to chat live(longer than expected) with members at the site. Although the chat was hardly perfect or smooth at times, it was a success in many ways….the most important being that over 35 individual members questions were answered live by Steve and over 90 members attended the chat.

Questions for Steve Wiebe that were off the beaten path

In contrast, an interview is very one sided where the agenda of the interviewer or the media channel is apparent.

The plan right now is that if we can retrieve a transcript, to get that information published in Gameroom Magazine. So, if you missed the chat and don’t subscribe to Gameroom Mag, you’ll probably want to look at picking up the June / July issue for sure.

Just a couple of cool things that came out if you weren’t able to make the Steve Wiebe chat;

  • Sounds like Steve has officially retired from making a run at the game Stampede
  • Next game Steve may look to conquer – Popeye
  • Theoretically Steve said you can get as high as 1,250,000 on Donkey Kong
  • Being Famous has some perks
    • Drum solo at a Rush concert
    • Meeting Rascall Flatts backstage
    • Throw out a pitch at the local minor league baseball game
  • As well as other little snippets.

    If you were around for the chat, leave a comment about what piece of information was most interesting to you. Comments pertaining to problems with the chat should be placed in the chat thread and will be deleted from this post.
