Broadcasting LIVE from Buzzmachine World Headquarters today!

: This is pretty damned cool if it works:

I’ll be broadcasting on MSNBC’s Connected via a webcam from my home today at 5p ET.

This is a neat moment in the merging of big media and citizens’ media: Anybody can broadcast anywhere not only over the internet but also via big, old cables.

I’ll be giving a blog report and then will be on a segment with Robert Cox of Media Bloggers and the National Debate and John Aravosis of AmericaBlog to talk about how bloggers are organizing themselves into a press.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but two questions come to mind:
    1) Why do you want “big media” and “citizens’ media” to merge?
    2) Haven’t webcams already been used for remote reporting by news already? If not, is really a difference “in kind” compared to digicams or other remote tools?

    It was pretty damn cool — especially because I read this post at 5:05, switched to MSNBC, and saw the appearance a few minutes later. Coincidence? Eh — I guess so.
    I’ve seen better webcam results before (faster frame rates), but we’re getting more accustomed to poor quality video on TV news, what with satellite phone transmissions, etc. And that’s just a technical problem.
    Will CSPAN callers be using webcams ten years from now instead of telephones?

    Someone over there should add the ‘Connected’ transcript along with the others (Matthews, Scarborough, etc.) How useful is a blog-friendly program to blogs if you can’t easily look up what was said online (not even with Google)?

    ANDRE survival in the future will come as no great suprise to neither BILL CLINTON nor to his BLACK HIPHOP and antebellum rulers including the ones who have been spreading aids, since they knew what of those in women’s movement did not know.Many of those in women’s movement having trick by their own black servants in beliving that because they were able to used the hiphop culture and racial profiling to imprison many black americans and having them martyred within prison system by other black inmates that andre too would suffer the same fate.
