It’s already close to the end of the month again, i.e. the next ‘Fireside Chat’ is upcoming. It will be the 15th edition, and it will be on LinkedIn for the second time. The switch from Clubhouse to LinkedIn Live worked smoothly — at least for me; I do hope, for you, too! If you missed it: The recordings of #14 are still available here.

The next ‘Fireside Chat’ is planned as follows:

Date: Wed, 29 June 2022
Time: 12:15 hrs CEST
Venue: LinkedIn; see you here

My current draft list of topics is as follows:

👉 S2022_002

I was re-thinking the Fireside Chat format a while ago, and I have been curious to learn how you would like it. The outcome of my little poll showed a clear tendency: A preference for lunch time over the evening; and a preference for LinkedIn Live over Clubhouse.

Accordingly, the next Fireside Chat is planned as follows:

Date: Wed, 1 June 2022
Time: 12:15 hrs CEST
Venue: LinkedIn; see you here

I hope the start time leaves you enough time to grab a sandwich before joining … 😉

Re-thinking the ‘Fireside Chat’ format: How would _you_ like it? Let me know, please.

Reading time: 3 minutes

Please bear with me, I will skip the April edition of the ‘Swiss Patent Litigation – Fireside Chat’. For two simple reasons: First, I am on holiday (and I do not even have a headset with me). Second, the few things that have happened last month can easily be dealt with in the next session.

What’s your opinion on the format?

I started the ‘Fireside Chats’ more than a year ago on Clubhouse, always on the last Wednesday of a month at 19:00 hrs CET. I still like what I do there, and I had some very interesting discussions already.

But what about you?

Some told me that the time, 19:00 hrs CET, is not ideal. Commuting time, dinner time, family time, etc. Now, what about switching to lunch time, let’s say 12:15 CET?

Which time suits you better?

And what about Clubhouse in general? What I like about this format is that it really encourages discussion, not consumption. It is audio-only, i.e. the entry barrier is very low. Likewise, participating in a discussion is very easy: Raise a hand, jump on stage and let people know what you think. I do believe that some of the spontaneous discussions I had on Clubhouse would not have been possible e.g. in the comments on a Blog, or LinkedIn. However, Clubhouse is yet another platform, and some might just not want to install yet another app on their devices.

Alternatively, I have seriously considered LinkedIn Live. LinkedIn is the forum where most of my contacts are around, anyway. And LinkedIn Live is not rocket science; it worked well for me in a test drive. However, I am afraid to lose the interactive character of the Clubhouse chats: Listeners may well post live comments or ask questions in the chat, but cannot directly join the discussion. Oh, and you would have to endure the sight of me (which really does not add value); it would not be audio-only.

What do you think:

Clubhouse or LinkedIn?

Btw, if and when LinkedIn really comes up with what appears to be a Clubhouse / oups / Audio Event feature, I will switch (back) to LinkedIn for the fireside (or lunchtime) chats immediately.

Finally, I wonder whether inviting guest speakers might add value. No, I don’t mean to just ‘simulate’ a discussion that is wholly pre-determined like in a screenplay; I would want to keep the spontaneous character in any dicsussion.

What about guest speakers?

Thanks for letting me know; your feedback is much appreciated.

The rough agenda:

1 // I will provide a quick update on what has happened at the Swiss Federal Patent Court and the Supreme Court in patent matters; 15 min.

Besides patent litigation, I currently plan to briefly touch on G 1/21 and the role of the FPC as potential appeal authority in the PatA revision.

Will you join the ‘Fireside Chat’ on Clubhouse?

Are you tired of only reading Blog posts and Tweets?

Are you missing the discussion, in particular in these pandemic times?

Then let’s have a chat on Clubhouse! 👋

Honestly, I am normally not an early adopter of social media stuff, but the live audio chat concept of Clubhouse is pretty appealing to me.
