The Irish National Labour Party will be streaming their 62nd National Delegate Conference live on Ustream November 16th-Nov 18th.

Speaking at the conference and live on Ustream will be the New Party Leader Eamon Gilmore. He is not the first prominent Irishmen to stream live on Ustream. In fact the former President of Ireland Mary Robinson spoke with Ustreamers during the United Nations Stand Up For Poverty Event about a month ago.

Ustream In The Classroom- Live Video Allows Parents To See School Projects

Posted on by

egg.jpgegg1.jpg

I remember in my high school Physics class we did a egg drop competition. The idea was to construct a device that would protect a egg and with stand a 2 story fall created out of normal everyday materials. The project was pass/fail. Broken egg equaled failure and a whole egg equaled passing.

For weeks I developed mathematical models and conducted hard core engineering analysis knowing my egg would land like a feather. The elaborate device I created was both beautiful and scientifically sound. On the big day, I dropped my creation only to watch my egg break and splatter into a million pieces.

That’s why when I watched 8th graders at Northbrook Junior High School test their contraptions in their annual egg drop, a flood of memories came back to me.

This event was especially intriguing as well because the parents of the students were able to watch this live from home and work. Earlier in the week, another school broadcasted their students science project presentations during school hours for their parents.

I absolutely love these type of uses of Ustream. Microbroadcasting for the masses to me is so exciting because of exactly events such as this. I’m glad these parents were able to witness their son and daughter’s egg heroics ……….or tragedies.

Plain White T’s Coming To Ustream!

The #1 Rock Band in the country is coming to Ustream.TV! On November 13th at 9am Eastern and 2pm London, the Plain White T’s will do a live stream interacting with their fans and playing several songs for the Ustream nation!

For almost a decade, the Plain White T’s have been playing to packed audiences craving for that perfect pop-punk punch. Plain White T’s was founded back in 1997 by Tom Higgenson, its first and only front man. Inspired by the booming local music scene, which included the likes of Smashing Pumpkins, Higgenson recruited some kids from his local high school including guitarist Dave Tirio,and the PWT’s were born.

PWT’s debut album Stop, was recorded entirely in a friend’s basement and self released in 2002. The music industry took note. Fearless Records signed PWT’s and re-released Stop along with their 1995 album, All That We Needed. The PWT’s showed a softer side with “Hey There Delilah” their 1st single of Every Second Counts.

Be sure to tune in and come speak with this top national band on Ustream.TV!

Politics Go Local On Ustream

Posted on by

sbsun1.jpgOver the past year, Ustream has been witness to numerous high profile political figures from Hillary Clinton to the Former President of Ireland. We recently witnessed Mike Gravel’s Anti-Debate on Ustream after he was not allowed to participate in the national event on MSNBC.

As impressive as the national events are, I’m most intrigued by the use of Ustream in local politics. This past week, the SB Sun Newspaper did live commentary around the election results for two precincts in San Bernardino, California. People from the local area were encouraged to watch and take part as the election results rolled in through midnight. Although I knew little about the candidates and the specific political climate in SB, I witnessed local democracy in action and actually enjoyed it.

As the barriers to stream come down (and they will people!!!), I know we’ll see more small towns around the country doing similar streams.

Epileptic Gaming – Next Season Starts Monday

Posted on by

After taking a few weeks off to upgrade the GGL studio and prepare for a second season of live TV-quality broadcasting, the crew of Epileptic Gaming is ready to return to their daily live shows beginning Nov. 5.

Recognized as the Web’s only live video show dedicated to videogames and the culture that surrounds it, Epileptic Gaming reaches your target audience of gamers. Connecting with a worldwide audience of males and females age 15-35, Epileptic Gaming is setting the standard of how next-generation videogame content should be done.

With a cast of diverse personalities who break the standard stereotype, Epileptic Gaming is hosted by long-time e-sports shoutcaster Marcus “djWHEAT” Graham whose experience in front of the camera and speaking directly with gamers is unmatched.

“Epileptic Gaming began as an underground Internet radio show in 2003 and as the years progressed we realized that more and more gamers were looking for an alternative voice for videogame news and reviews,” said host Graham. “Now that we’re a daily video show, we can reach a larger audience. We’re also finding that gamers are attracted to our broadcast because we’re offering something so completely unique to the traditional gaming space. It’s something that gamers have never seen before and almost immediately latch onto because it’s so exciting and new.”

Epileptic Gaming is aired live at 7 p.m. Eastern / 4 p.m. Pacific and featured everyday on Ustream with videos on demand offered on the show’s official Web site for free, shortly after each show.
