Eventstreaming: The Seed Of A Revolution

Duncan Riley at TechCrunch reports on what happened yesterday during the iPhone launch, and what it means for the future of live streaming, Eventstreaming: The Seed Of A Revolution:
"Eventstreaming is the missing link in Web 2.0’s challenge to network television."

Here are some of my real time observations that I posted to twitter from yesterday:
"This is just an indication of the future of news reporting"

"Streaming video live is history repeating. radio/tv <-> web audio/web video. People are experimenting now. Give it time..."

"iJustine is calling her mom on an iPhone and I'm watching it LIVE "The iPhone is awesome""

" Mogulus joins USTREAM.TV reporting about iPhone from the street today. 336 viewers right now. "
Whether or not you cared about the iPhone launch itself, the live streamers made it feel like you were there. In addition to that, if the live streamers were paying attention to their chat rooms, you could participate in the event remotely.
