I'm Patrick, also known as Sockrates, and I've been live-streaming various video games on the website Twitch.tv for a few months now. I'm an undergraduate student at UC Davis majoring in pharmaceutical chemistry and an aspiring pharmacist with a love for science. I decided to meld my love for video games and science together and begin streaming Foldit on my Twitch channel, https://www.twitch.tv/s0ckrates
I already did my first livestream of Foldit where I cleared all of the tutorials and one beginner puzzle before playing a little Factorio (after which I improved upon the high score off-stream.) While I was preparing for stream I noticed that there isn't anybody in the Twitch streaming directory streaming Foldit, so I wanted to take a moment to reach out to the community here in order to change that. If there are any fellow Foldit streamers I should know about, please toss me a message on Twitter (@MrSockrates), or on Twitch.
As to when I plan on streaming Foldit, I don't have a set schedule but you can follow me on Twitch and Twitter and get notified when I go live. I plan to do so whenever I get some spare moments during my school week, as sort of bonus streams to my weekly stream where I livestream whatever video game I please as a way to destress, express myself, and interact with passersby and loyal viewers alike in chat.
Also if you're new to Twitch and have no idea what it is, I wrote an article on mmos.com that compares it to a giant couch, of all things. https://mmos.com/editorials/twitch-online-gamers-internet-couch
Feel free to ask me in chat any questions you have regarding Twitch culture!
I plan to go live tonight for an hour or so moments after publishing this post, so please stop on by and say hi if you get the chance! If things go well over time, I'll be much more encouraged to keep streaming Foldit alongside the other games I want to share with the world. Try not to backseat unless I ask for tips, but other than that, enjoy the stream!
