Starting this Thursday, we’ll be doing weekly Spreecasts featuring content that will be a part of Netroots Nation 2012 in Providence. Click here to sign up for reminders of the Spreecasts and view the archives as they become available.
What is a “Spreecast,” you ask? I think they really put it best:
Launched as a public beta in November 2011, Spreecast enables people, using only a browser and a webcam, to produce highly interactive face-to-face video broadcasts that thousands of others can participate in live. Spreecasts are simultaneously recorded and immediately available for playback and sharing. You can also embed them on your web site or blog. In a Spreecast, up to four people at a time can get face-to-face on screen, while many others can watch, chat, tweet, comment and participate by submitting questions to those on screen. Producers have robust tools to control who and what appears on screen.
Our first Spreecast will be this Thursday, April 26 at 6 p.m. Eastern featuring folks from this NN12 panel: The Battle for Congress: Q&A on the 2012 Elections. Guests will include Daily Kos Contributing Editor Steve Singiser and Political Director David Nir, who is also the editor of the FANTASTIC DailyKos Election Daily, which you should sign up for RIGHT NOW).
I hope you’ll join us this Thursday and every week. Check back for details on who will be featured in upcoming Spreecasts!
