“Just because we can” tomorrow’s presentations from Sydney we are going to broadcast tomorrow’s sessions from Sydney via ustream.tv an amazing new, free web tool that allows anyone to do this live over the internet, with a simple computer camera (and a really good internet connection).
I have been amazed watching a few of these among my geek network, so I figured, why not try? in front of 120 people, why not?
This will be another iteration of my “Being There” and “”What’s on Your Horizon sessions, with a few new twists. One of them is we are using, with the help of Alexander Hayes and Jo Kay, a SMS messaging system that allows me to poll the audience.
The streaming did work this afternoon; I am not too sure how the camera anglew will work, you will get a shot of me (either coughing or saying “um”) and a bit of the primary screen.
No edge like the bloody one.
