In Person, Live, Hybrid, & Youtube.com
In less than one hundred years the following terminology probably will be as relevant as the difference between a stick drawing in the sand, a ink quill, a fountain pen, and a lead pencil is today, but I need to sort out the differences for myself; and they appear to be as follows.
Early 21st Century Meeting Terminology:
In person: with one's own body and presence, the meeting together is personal, person-to-person to person....
Live: means an event is broadcast in real time, without delay, without change, to television viewers who have no input.
Hybrid: meeting has three major components, 1) some people participate in person, 2) other people participate on-line, remotely through their own devices, facilitated by virtual components such as an AI that provides 360° camera on meeting area, mic, and speaker, and 3) all participants can add pre-recorded material such as videos or text to read.
Youtube.com channels: allow viewers limited input such as: "Up Like/Down Dislike", "Comments", "Subscribe", selecting "Not Interested" or "Don't suggest channel again", and "Report."
