Excerpt: Here is Ross McGill livestreamed from the CPD #TMLondonBoat. I filmed half the sessions with a GoPro and professional stream box and half with Periscope and my phone. The Periscope sessions were much clearer. Here is Ross summing up the session tonight: Here’s some feedback from the evening – one person even came from Birmingham: I managed to capture a flavour of the evening – excuse the lighting – this was livestreaming on a moving boat!
