I don't want to sound overly stoking, but I stepped in to watch FUNimation's Virtual Industry Panel, and it was easily one of the coolest initiatives I've seen the North American market take. Now, it was riddled with technical explosions, but the idea was strong enough to follow my interest over it.
 
Basically, using CoverItLive software as a staging ground for questions, Adam Sheehan performed his song and dance on a live feed camera, while Rojas played backup on the 'keys. the overall product was (un)surprisingly similar to that of a FUNimation friendly panel---
 
- is what I want to say, butttttttttt Rojas didn't post my question about zombies... so I guess the effort only gets one thumb up instead of two. If anyone's interest has been perked, I've posted the video of the live feed. However, next time I would promote viewing it live. Without the time skips and deluge of questions that you read prior to his speaking on them, its a slightly different experience. Also, they said they were going to do some post editing to clean it up, but you'll have to be the judge of that, I've already watched it once. (Make sure annotations are on!!!)
 
That said, make it clap. This is the kind of thing that really should be encouraged in my opinion.

Finally got time to watch it. It was a neat concept, and it worked well enough. The questions weren't all as inane as I expected, so the human filter definitely worked. Also I want to steal the Spidey art.

@Niko: Seconded, but unsurprisingly the offices are a museum of random cool stuff. Oh, and seconded on the lack of inane questions. I was thoroughly surprised with how it turned out, though I'll have higher expectations for the next one.

I LOVE THE HUMAN FILTER.
 
God, I wish we could do that at real cons. I love fans generally speaking, but man, every once in a while the sheer stupidity of a question makes me want to strangle someone @_@
