Speaking of Shel Holtz, he has a great post about the next step in the live blogging revolution: live video. This has been a topic of conversation in tech blogs this week because of the Web 2.0 expo. I’ll let Shel explain:
Over at PodTech Robert Scoble and Jeremiah Owyang took UStream for a spin at the recent Web 2.0 conference, using the live streaming capability to broadcast panel discussions and other activities. (Jeremiah wrote about it here.)
I can’t recall where I saw it but there’s a great if ridiculous photo of Scoble sitting next to Chris Pirillo while Chris is typing and Scoble is wearing a head-cam. And did I mention they were on a panel at that time? Only at a tech conference…
Though I managed to be enmeshed in the recent live blogging controversy, I suspect that I’ll be able to remain on the sidelines of this discussion as I’m not sure I’m likely to become a videographer. (Shel #1, Shel Israel, has an interesting post on the subject, especially since he was at ground zero of the debate.)
I guess I’ll just have to stick to annoying panelists and fellow attendees with keyboard clatter.
