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.

Excluded? Nope! Senator Mike Gravel Leverages Ustream despite NBC

Posted on by

politics9.jpgNBC News and the Democratic National Committee excluded former Sen. Mike Gravel of Alaska on grounds that he did not meet fundraising and polling thresholds. Well that didn’t stop him from getting his message out live on Ustream.TV

Senator Mike Gravel in front of a full auditorium responded to each of the questions and answers from the Democratic candidates during the debate live at Drexel University. MSNBC wouldn’t cover the event, but Ustream did.

We continue to see the candidates from both sides of the aisle empowering themselves with live Ustream events.

Senator Gravel, if NBC won’t allow you to get your message, Ustream always will!

One of the coolest uses of Ustream I’ve seen since we started the company has been the Start Up Weekend events.

The idea of a group of people trying to build a entire company in one weekend is both exciting and fascinating. As their website states, “Startup Weekend is an idea, an experiment, a chance to gather the tech community and create a company over one jam packed weekend.” That is just cool.

The last StartUp Weekend in Colorado was great: See Here >> http://ustream.tv/blog/2007/07/08/start-up-weekend-70-founders-create-company-in-one-weekend-on-ustreamtv/
