Today’s GreenMonk Energy and Sustainability show was quieter than normal due to it being a bank holiday in both Ireland and the UK, however, we still had a total of 24 viewers according to Ustream!
I also rolled out a new Yshout chat application on the new GreenMonkTV page – this means I won’t be tied to Ustream as a video platform for the show and will be able to move to other providers as I find them.
Here is the chatstream from today’s show:
