uStreaming a Political Debate Next Week

Ian Lurie

Monday and Tuesday I will be in Orlando, FL, streaming and possibly liveblogging a presidential candidate forum. The IAMAW organized it.

I’ll be using to do the webcast. I know that may mean fits and starts, but it’s fast, expedient and I didn’t have a whole lotta warning.

I’m very, very excited to take part! I’ll provide details of how we did it, and what bumps we hit, after the event.

Here’s the full media notification:

Washington, D.C., August 21, 2007 – Five presidential candidates confirmed they will take part in discussions of key domestic issues before more than 600 representatives of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) on August 27 and 28 at the Disney Yacht and Beach Club in Orlando, FL.
