The conference will also cover new technologies, trends and the future of software development. Attendees will learn from the peers, practitioners and leaders in the developer community.

Events No Longer Bound By Location: Apple WWDC Keynote

Posted on by

applewwdc.png

When Steve Jobs talks there is almost a religious feel to his words – people listen and are mesmerized. Whatever Steve says is truth – whatever Steve presents is gold.

The Apple WWDC is extremely exclusive – reserved to those with influence and power. A mere hand full of people actually made it into the much anticipated Steve Jobs keynote thus leaving the masses in the dark.

Ustream.tv solved this.

The keynote was streamed LIVE to nearly three hundred thousand people total and nearly sixty thousand at any given time. That is amazing. Those hundreds of thousands of people did not have to wait a couple hours to find out what was said, they didn’t need to sit alone in their room twiddling their thumbs – Oh no – The masses gathered on Ustream.tv and together listened LIVE to Steve Jobs unveil the 3G iPhone. In the moments leading up to it they nervously talked in the chat room and once announced cheered together. The excitement gave me chills.

We are honored to have provided this. There are so many events world wide that are just itching to be streamed. There are so many people aching to watch. It’s up to you to stream it.

Contact us at events@ustream.tv if you need help with promotion or set up. We want you to have the most flawless live stream ever and we will do everything and more to make sure that happens.

Thank you for creating shows and building this community. It is you, the Ustreamer, who is making live video huge. Now lets step it up a notch.

2008 Complete Lunar Eclipse: How a Random Ustreamer Made My Night

Posted on by

Lunar EclipseNothing is more boring that a Lunar Eclipse. You spend hours staring at a somewhat normal moon, your legs get tired, and whatever previous excitement you may have had quickly dwindles leaving you with nothing but strained eyes.

Yet…a Lunar Eclipse is still pretty sweet. The sheer fact that it is rare makes it awesome.

So, its February 20th, the night of the eclipse. At around 6:30 pm (pst) I jump out of my chair and alert everyone within shouting distance that its time to go watch the eclipse. No response. In a second attempt to gain some followers I explain that its the last complete Lunar Eclipse until 2010 and finally, among grumbles and sighs, but still some inevitable curiosity – I successfully lead everyone outside…Only to find that its cloudy.

Great.

In defeat I sat back down to my computer, blindly browsing my internet haunts. Huge success! Low and behold, someone on Ustream, in non-cloudy-Florida, was streaming the Lunar Eclipse. As I sat watching the moon slowly go dark, I enjoyed a lively chat with other viewers from all over the world. We were happy as could be.

I was completely glued to my seat for over an hour watching something that I found extremely boring. I’m not sure if it was the fact that I needed to see the moon go completely dark before I’d be satisfied, or if it was the crazy conversations I was involved in with the other viewers. Random people shouting “GOOD NIGHT MOOOON!”, “MOON! SHOE ON HEAD”, and the occasional babbling of a learned astronomer created such an entertaining and friendly environment that I couldn’t leave. Although I wasn’t the one streaming, I felt involved.

I think its safe to say that, along with the thousands of other viewers who watched the Lunar Eclipse on Ustream, this random Ustreamer made my night.
