Thousands Celebrate 2008 New Year On Ustream.TV

ny8.jpgWelcome to 2008! And Wow, what a way to end the year!!

Last night Ustream was BY FAR the most happening place on the web to celebrate 2007 and the arrival of 2008.

Tens of thousands of you joined the numerous live concerts, events, podcasts and celebrations with us. I know I personally had a blast.

The highlight of the night was Rock legend Paul Rodgers LIVE in Concert. This was brought to Ustream by our friends at EQ.TV and it was a smash hit. We saw unreleased concert footage and a special interview live with the former Bad Company lead singer.

Congressman Dennis Kucinich also celebrated with Ustream bringing us his “Resolution For Peace” event. Numerous bands and artists performed for his supporters around the country in preparation for the Iowa primaries.

We were also treated with several hours of great Salsa dance and music by Salsaunlimited.com!

Playcafe.com hosted a special New Year’s Eve gameshow. Playcafe is the internet’s first live gameshow on the net. Viewers get to answer a series of questions to win prizes. I’ve played a few times and its a blast!

Finally, the great people at SQPN (www.sqpn.com) did a New Year’s Eve podcasting marathon to raise money for their 2008 events. From my understanding they raised $14,000 in donations yesterday alone! Fr. Roderick and Greg Willits congrats!
