If you have not used Open-i and Wimba before, they strongly urge you to arrive to the salon 15 minute early so you can set up your computer with the platform. There is a simple setup wizard accessible from the login page that will walk you through this process. Wimba works well in Firefox and Safari once pop ups are enabled. It is not compatible with Chrome.
As a salon participant/observer, you can watch and hear the discussion between photographers, editors and others on the panel. You’re invited to type your comments and read those of others in real time. All comments are seen throughout and may be addressed by those on the panel. Towards the end of the live salon, anyone typing/observing will be invited to talk directly with panelists.
