One of the interesting things about Ustream’s growth is the amount of attention we’ve gotten from overseas. In many ways, our Latin and Italian members are our earliest adopters.
One thing we’re trying to do is to comment on blogs that post about Ustream. The problem is, we can’t read Spanish, Italian, or Portuguese. Anyone fluent in those languages want to volunteer to reach out to our foreign fans?
Hey guys, we are starting a grassroots drive to get the now famous Johnny from the Liverazzi Show on Jay Leno.Â He is the world’s first LIVE streaming paparrazzi.Â We need your email!Â Contact, Call, Email, or stop by and tell them.Â

Thank you to everyone for allÂ your support!Â These past few days Ustream.tv has received a ton of exposure.Â We are growing fast faster then we everÂ predict.Â We at Ustream.tv believe this is a testament to our technology and the live media space.Â Â Although the journey has just started, we look forward to continuing to evolve and improve for you…
Â Check out a few ofÂ many articles below:
The launch of Ustream has exceeded all of our expectations in terms of traffic and usage.Â We figured that launching would get us a little bit of attention, and jump start the growth of the site.
Instead, the overwhelming response has been taxing our infrastructure and keeping us working around the clock to add more capacity.Â We certainly apologize for the growing pains.Â We thought we had enough capacity to handle any reasonable scenario.Â It just turns out that live video is unreasonably successful!
The late night heroics of the technical team should pay off today, as we triple our capacity.Â And that should hold us for, oh, I don’t know, another couple of days?
But in the grand scheme of things, being too popular is a little like being too rich–it’s what we like to call a high grade problem.
