Greg talks about television models for communication. TV shows, TV specials, Movies. RCast can be a special but still requires previous context – so as features come out, we could do a “special” on the new feature. For example “Last Finalized State” we can do a communication that is self contained about the features. Also maybe some long form that would be akin to a presentation at a conference.
