Guerilla webcastingAs I've mentioned a few times before, I grew up on punk rock. The essence of punk rock is DIY (do it yourself). It suggested that anyone could start a band, anyone could start a clothing label or anyone could start a magazine.
Now anyone can start a broadcast.
Check out USTREAM.
Now think about your coastal campaigns. Think about issues that are never acted on because they happen in back-offices, with small audiences, etc. Think about doubling the number of people that come to a chapter meeting (and drawing people from geographies outside your local area).
As I also tend to say over and over again, this isn't about the tech. It's about what tech enables.
In this case the tech I'm pointing to enables you to
- Set up your own broadcast for the world to see using a webcam or any net-attached camera
- Use an iphones for both up- and down-stream
- Add a chat feature so people aren't simply passively watching... they can be engaged
