The event was a tremendous success with over 130,000 live streams served over the course of the 45 minute show.
The Last Goodnight have been touring extensively since the release of their major-label debut album, Poison Kiss, this past summer, playing certain dates with American Idol finalist Elliot Yamin. The band originally hails from Connecticut, and their music has been featured on the television program Brothers & Sisters.
They have a hit song called “Pictures of You” that I really love. Check out their Myspace: http://www.myspace.com/thelastgoodnight

A few weeks ago, Senator Mike Gravel, a Presidential Candidate, was not able to participate in the MSNBC Democratic Debate due to the networks feeling he did not have enough support. Despite this set back, Senator Gravel streamed a alternative debate live on Ustream reaching thousands.
Well, it has happened again and this time Senator Gravel’s campaign is more aggressive and more public about their Alternative Debate. Tonight at 7:30pm EST/4:30pm PST, Senator Gravel will once again stream live on Ustream giving his own thoughts for EVERY answer from the Democratic Presidential field.

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.

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.

I found this great blog post on using Ustream in the classroom as well:
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!
