Tom will put up the new call-in number to the studio just before the show begins.

The Ed Morrissey Show for May15th

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 15, 2008

<!– Streaming Video by Ustream.TV –>

Free video streaming by Ustream

The show is on from 3 pm to 4pm. I am experimenting with loading the chat stream to see if it will play. We’ve been having problems with it…so, no promises.

Ed had dental work done today, so he’ll re-run last week’s interview with Michael Yon, and drop by the chat room. I have already embedded that show.

The Ed Morrissey Show for May 14th

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 14, 2008

I was an idiot, and forgot to embed the show today (and yesterday and…).

So, here it is:
Live Streaming by Ustream.TV

Now that blogger will allow me to schedule posts in advance, I will (or should) be able to handle all the scheduled posting for the day early in the day so I don’t have to rely on my not always reliable memory.

Have a good weekend.

Program Note (Updated)

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 24, 2008

I’ll be running a live webcast from the NC-11 GOP Convention this Saturday, from at least 11.30 am until the end of the convention. So, if you plan on being in the area Saturday, drop by and we’ll talk. And if you have a group or candidate you want to promote feel free. If you give me a heads up in the comments, I’ll design a graphic I can put onscreen during your appearance to direct viewers to your website.

I’ll embed the stream on all my websites, and if you want to be added to the network, contact me in the comments, or swipe the embed code once the show starts.

**update** 9.30am I’ve been advised that the internet connection is not 100% reliable for Saturday. Bummer. If that happens…I’ll go to Plan B, and set up to record video and grab some interviews.

Watch Barack Obama Townhall Live Coutesy Raleigh News & Observer Updated with Audio of Speech

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 17, 2008

Apparently I’m not the only one ramping up to provide live coverage of political events. Witness:

<!– –>Event is over…processing audio. will have a video clip overview…
The event will start at 12.30pm, (now they are saying 1pm) and is in Greensboro Raleigh.
Hat Tip: Under the Dome

**update** 4.09 pm
Here is the audio of his speech:

I am very glad to see more people starting to realize that they can webcast events live on the internet, and, despite very little warning, the News & Observer managed to score a peak of 275 viewers (give or take) at one point during the speech.

Now, if only the North Carolina General Assembly would follow through, and start webcasting video of their floor action, and committee meetings so that we, their employers, can watch them do our work.

(Special Event) Thundercast

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 3, 2008

7.43 pm The live event is over, and I would like to thank the staff at WCU for their assistance, Don Yelton for the use of a laptop, and the commenters who assisted me chase down audio problems, and the tech guy from County NC News for helping me troubleshoot the troublesome camera driver installation.

This was a learning experience, and it is my hope that the next event will be bigger and better, and that the gremlins will find someone else to bother on that day!

Video of Matt in the raw.

The second video of the series.

The third video, an interview with Cnancellor John Bardo.

2.28pm I will be live blogging the event here as well. If you have been watching the video, you will see that Matt is already here and setting up. He even asked me where the “facilities were” and I haven’t been made. Keep refreshing the page for more updates. Especially if I can’t figure out how to get the online comments going. Now you know why I try to keep my face unknown. I can walk right up to people, and they have no idea who I am. I guess my training from my former employer is still holding. [TP]

I am planning a special event live for Thursday at 3pm for at least one hour, possibly three. This will be a guerrilla webcast, and will be available on a network of blogs and websites from the East to the West in North Carolina.

The event will be live streaming video with audio, much like my webcast of the Gubernatorial Debate from Blue Ridge Community College. and embedded in this post, which will stay on top until 6pm on Thursday. I will also be archiving the video for posting excerpts to youtube, so I will have to drop the connection for a couple of minutes at the bottom of the hour, and you will have to refresh the page to get it to come back up.
