Daft Punk videos streamed before and after the chat. It began at 12:30 p.m. Eastern today with a spoken welcome from members Thomas and Guy-Manuel over the stream. Then, during the text chat, the band streamed their Alive 2007 live album, which they are currently promoting, along with a slide show of tour photos. The duo then bid visitors farewell by again speaking through the live audio stream.
Here is the full transcript of the chat, which only allowed a limited number of early visitors to actively contribute and ask questions:
