IOD-TV is on the air

After several months of planning and preparation, I’m pleased to finally let the lid off the next phase of  the great ImmerseOrDie experiment.

Many followers have asked me to do a series of articles on the more persistent WTF issues I find on the treadmill, with tips about how to deal with them. Well, I’m finally doing that. But rather than do it in a stodgy web article, I wanted to have a bit of fun with them.

So today I opened the doors on my new experiment: IOD-TV. With this YouTube channel, I’ll be focusing on two things: a series of videos about common immersion problems, called the 5-Minute Immersion Lab; and another series promoting the excellent books I’ve discovered on the treadmill. I’m calling the second group Indie Nuggets.

I hope you’ll come check them out. If you do and you find them useful, please consider subscribing to the channel for updates as well. (It turns out that YouTube doesn’t take new channels very seriously until you have a minimum threshold of subscribers.)

Now, before anybody panics, let me assure you that there’s no need to worry about the regular ImmerseOrDie Reports. They’ll continue to appear, just as always on the web site. In fact, I’m taking steps to increase the number and variety of reports we post. And there are a few other things I’m working on that will hopefully be coming to the IOD community soon, so keep watching this space.

Anyway, thanks for your continued support of ImmerseOrDie, and I hope you’ll enjoy this new phase of our mission to put indie fiction to the test, promote the best, and help the rest.
