The New Media Election- And It Was Powerful

Posted on by

Tonight I sat back and watched with amazement one of our nation’s most sacred principles unfold live on Ustream.  Over a million people followed the election on Ustream today- from small election parties, to passionate professional broadcasts.

Whether you agree or not, are red or blue, Democrat or Republican, history was made today and many experienced this through our humble service.  Over the last 2 years, John, Gyula and I have had the opportunity to meet many people and see many things because of Ustream, but tonight, for me, was the most powerful.

Thank you to all who support our service.  We have many major announcements coming over the next few months and we will continue to push the limits of this powerful medium.

God Bless America!
