Getting “Red”y at The RNC

Black suits, ear pieces, matching sun glasses, camo, guns, badges, road blocks, and red elaphants oh my. With the convention coming up fast on Monday, security is exponentially getting tighter and the peremeter getting larger. The Xcel Energy Center is buzzing with a mix of Secret Service, Press, and two Ustream employees – all of whom are giving 200% to ensure perfection.

For the past three days Brad and I have been setting up streams for the Republican National Convention. The quality is, like all of our streams, amazing. For the first time ever, you will be able to watch the RNC from the comfort of your computer chair. It’s amazing that we live in an age where live premium content is delivered directly to our work, school, or home computer. Ustream allows us to stay informed in real time, and more importantly, share that experience with millions around the world.

Pictured below are Brad and I, standing in front of the main stage, ready to bring you into the RNC with Ustream.

As I finish this update, I notice I’m typing in synch with the loud throbbing military helicopters that are constantly keeping watch a hundred feet above me.
