Broadcast Update: Feedback Friday, and a Live Q&A With Designer Adam Paskow

Posted ago by Baron

Good news, makers! Thanks to the tireless efforts of Quirky’s Media team, we’re adding a new broadcast to the weekly lineup. Each Tuesday, we’ll be holding a live Q&A with a different member of the Quirky staff, hosted by the Community team’s Baron Nagy. A snifter or two of gin may be also be involved, titling the broadcast “Gin with…”. Online viewers will be able to pitch in with questions too, so if there’s a staff member you’d like to meet, post his/her name in the comments below! The first episode of the series, “Gin with Adam Paskow”, will be broadcast live this Tuesday at 5pm ET, and will feature a chat with industrial designer Adam Paskow. As one of the first members of the Quirky Design Staff, Adam has been responsible for some of QHQ’s most iconic products, and we couldn’t be more excited to have him on board. Don’t forget to tune in via Quirky Live.

While the week may start with “Gin with Adam Paskow”, it ends with Feedback Friday. This Friday at 5pm ET, we’ll be focusing our gaze on the Pet invention category, sharing insights from the Quirky staffers who scan the category each and every week.

As some of you may know, the Quirky staff searches through the site’s idea submissions in category-based groups, which are organized according to interest and expertise. This week’s Feedback Friday will feature members of the Pets group, who will break down their thoughts on the category, pointing out which ideas they like, which ideas they don’t, and which ideas they’d like to see more often (to name a few topics of discussion). Viewers will also have the chance to ask questions through the chat, allowing you to pick the brains of the very people who are scanning that category. Whether you’ve submitted a dozen pet product concepts in the past, or are just considering your first, this is definitely not a broadcast to miss.

So, how can you get involved in this special symposium? It really couldn’t be easier. Just head to theĀ Quirky Live page at 3pm EST this Friday, and be ready with your pet-related questions! Alternatively, if you can’t make the broadcast, feel free to post your questions in the comments section of this post. We’ll handle the rest.

Hi Baron, had a question for FF (PET), my daughter is completing school for being a vet tech and has worked in a pet store and has interned for two vets; one of my pet ideas, http://www.quirky.com/ideations/386131 ; she has talked to the store owner of the pet store she has worked for and talked to the two vets she worked for and they told her that they thought this would be a good idea for many pet owners. The store owner said she would stock the device, the vets said it would be a device that they would offer people who are about to lose their pet for medical reasons and have to put them down. Is this type of device one that Q would want to do or is it in an area they are not ready to enter yet?
