Beirut Streaming Live

:: mrabba electronique | global web jam :::
"Saturday, August 12 2006, 15:00 - 19:00 PM CEST [16:00 - 20:00 EEST]

Live audio/video streaming transmission from Waag Society in Amsterdam, in direct connection with Beirut and surrounding localities. The event was initiated by Streamtime, a web support campaign for Iraqi bloggers.

After one month of violence and carnage, this Global Web Jam brings together live interviews and conversations, video clips, cartoons and blog blurbs, soundscapes, DJs and VJs, a lively mix of information, art, protest, party and reflection. We feature the voices, images stories, reports and initiatives from Lebanon and beyond, with participation of activists, artists, bloggers, journalists, musicians and many others."
Grassroots streaming of live events like this is the future of citizen journalism.

We talked abotu this at the Harvard Citizen Journalism Conference.

Here it is, now, real and live.

    Galya Daube, an Israeli 15-year-old, posted this video after running from her home to her bomb shelter during a Hezbollah missile attack. “I was home alone with my mom during the alarm. Since my camera was right next to me, I made a short clip of my running down to the shelter. Once I saw the clip, I decided to post it online so people could get a glimpse of what we go through when under attack.”
