Reporting for The UpTake: Massachusetts Primary

Here's a 23:41 video of my LIVE broadcast from Boston Beer Works on Primary night 2/5/08.

It was the first integrated LIVE broadcast between Qik and Mogulus. I was excited to be able to work with both companies to make this happen. Thanks a lot. It gives us a glimpse of the future.

You can go to the page on Qik for this video and see all the comments I was getting while broadcasting live from my Nokia N95-3 cellphone over the 3G network to Qik. Comments people make while I am online get streamed to the phone where I can read them while shooting the video.

The stream was then directed to Mogulus which broadcast my stream live to The UpTake viewers.

After I ended the stream the video was posted to Seesmic, where people could post video replies around the video and have a conversation about it.

    Not just Massachusetts primary- In general, How do we legitimize those participating in the caucuses? How do we verify age and legal status ie, voter eligibility? Those attending the caucus and casting their votes and electing delegate numbers for their candidate may not be of legal age or even citizens of the United States. In Minnesota where we have participated in our first caucus, we were not asked for any identification- only precinct- and on a scrap piece of paper who we were voting for,then placed paper in a precinct designated envelope. Who verifies this and deems it correct?
