The Miracle of Birth: Daemondox Demonstrates Dachshund Delivery Dramatics

Ustreamer Daemondox yesterday demonstrated the power of live video broadcasting when he streamed his pet dachshund, Magic, giving birth to a litter of puppies. Around 50+ viewers had a chance to experience the thrill and miracle of birth, before 2 year old Magic fell completely exhausted and could not push anymore. The viewers, sharing the worries and concerns of Daemondox, chimed in with invaluable advice and support in the chatrooms. You can just feel the tension of the moment in the chatroom dialogue recorded in the screencaps below (click on image to link to full size image):

The viewers were then left in breathless suspense as Magic was rushed to the vet for oxygen treatment and c-section.

Alas, the advice proved invaluable, as Magic returned from the vet alive, well, and a proud mother of a liter of four healthy puppies! Tune into Daemondox’s Ustream channel to keep track of the brand new happy dachshund family!

Barack, Rudy, and John: Election Season Heating Up at Ustream

As the presidential elections makes its steady march through the primaries, the viability of candidates take on a quantifiable momentum, producing breakthrough campaign activity both tragic and triumphant. Today, the Ustream community witnessed both extremes of the spectrum, live and in the moment.

Rudy Guiliani officially announced his withdrawal from the White House race, and thanks to our friends at Politico, we saw it all live from a front row seat at the press conference.

Giuliani coupled his exit announcement with an endorsement of fellow Ustreamer — and presidential candidate — John McCain.

On the democratic side of the campaign aisle, the Ustream community saw not one, but TWO speeches from Ustreamer – and presidential candidate — Barack Obama. Bouyed by his big win in South Carolina, Obama delivered a rousing speech to a massive rally in Denver, featuring Caroline Kennedy, before video-conferencing a talk with a Baptist organization. Barack’s team made sure to deliver both events live over Ustream.TV.

Political news junkies take note – when we say “LIVE” update we actually mean it. Here’s to the next President of the United States, whichever Ustreamer it turns out to be!

Hannah Montana Bursts On To Ustream.TV

hmn6.jpgWow. Ustream.TV experienced the phenomena of Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus first hand tonight.

Thousands of fans from across the country came to Ustream to catch a glimpse and see the red carpet event for Miley’s new movie “HANNAH MONTANA & MILEY CYRUS: BEST OF BOTH WORLDShm2.jpg CONCERT.” Shot during Cyrus’ 69-city tour and exhibited in state-of-the-art Disney Digital 3D™, the film will be coming to theaters for a special one week engagement on February 1, 2008.

Red Carpet VIPs from the film we saw live were: Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers, director Bruce Hendricks, producer Art Repola, concert tour producer Kenny Ortega and executive producer Douglas C. Merrifield.

Red Carpet Special Guests: Ashley Tisdale, Jim Belushi, Donny Osmond, Harry Hamlin, Lisa Rinna, Madison Pettis, Rick Fox, Rob Morrow, Tony Plana, and Vanessa Williams.

This almost reminds me of the craze of Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley. This girl is a star.

Iowa Meets New Media: Candidates, Bloggers Go Live On Ustream.TV

iowa5.jpgLast night was one of the most active political nights I have ever seen on Ustream to date. The results of Iowa Caucuses came in throughout world of new media last night, and Ustream was no exception.

Probably the most interesting live stream was by the Politico.com, a political organization started in early 2007. James Kotecki, a video blogger who does Politico’s PlaybookTV videos, gave great play by play coverage from Iowa Caucus Media Center as the results came in. It was a simple setup: laptop, EVDO card, built in webcam and Ustream by a guy who had opinions and understands the dynamics. This is New Media at its finest.

Two major Republican candidates streamed their post Iowa Caucus press conferences live on Ustream. Republican Senator John McCain was the first of the evening streaming live from New Hampshire to his supporters in Iowa and across the country.

Watch the full video here: McCain Iowa Caucus Speech.

Republican Governor Mitt Romney streamed his post Iowa speech live on Ustream as well. Gov. Romney placed second in the Iowa Caucus telling supporters they got the silver, but will get the gold in New Hampshire.

The next major caucus night is New Hampshire and we expect another great, interactive night!

Thousands Celebrate 2008 New Year On Ustream.TV

ny8.jpgWelcome to 2008! And Wow, what a way to end the year!!

Last night Ustream was BY FAR the most happening place on the web to celebrate 2007 and the arrival of 2008.

Tens of thousands of you joined the numerous live concerts, events, podcasts and celebrations with us. I know I personally had a blast.

The highlight of the night was Rock legend Paul Rodgers LIVE in Concert. This was brought to Ustream by our friends at EQ.TV and it was a smash hit. We saw unreleased concert footage and a special interview live with the former Bad Company lead singer.

ny9.jpg

Congressman Dennis Kucinich also celebrated with Ustream bringing us his “Resolution For Peace” event. Numerous bands and artists performed for his supporters around the country in preparation for the Iowa primaries.

ny4.jpg

We were also treated with several hours of great Salsa dance and music by Salsaunlimited.com!

ny2.jpg

Playcafe.com hosted a special New Year’s Eve gameshow. Playcafe is the internet’s first live gameshow on the net. Viewers get to answer a series of questions to win prizes. I’ve played a few times and its a blast!

ny6.jpg

Finally, the great people at SQPN (www.sqpn.com) did a New Year’s Eve podcasting marathon to raise money for their 2008 events. From my understanding they raised $14,000 in donations yesterday alone! Fr. Roderick and Greg Willits congrats!

ny3.jpg

From all the people at Ustream, we wish you a happy and wonderful new year!
