FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — Atlanta, GA, June 11, 2007

A handful of bloggers were able to broadcast live, via broadband, the N. Georgia Democrats "For the People" political rally yesterday. The archives are here:

This was Georgia political broadcasting history in the making, using available online technology and applications. Who needs satellite and microwave to go live anymore? Heck, who needs TV stations now?! (If only we could figure out how to get rid of that nasty little audio hum. Next time, we'll have that figured out.)

Production participants included: Grayson Daughters with WaySouth Media, Jon Flack of Tondee's Tavern, Bernita Smith of Blog for Democracy, and Martin Matheny, Communications Director for the Georgia Democratic Party. Much needed assistance was provided off site by Jim Long of Verge New Media (via Yahoo! Instant Messaging from DC); Brad, the creator of, and that really patient audio dude in the broadcast booth at the Georgia Mountains Center in Gainesville, GA. (Thank you all.)

Once up live on, the producers publicized the event to various social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, etc.

Dangit, I need to get more proactive about Young Dems issuing media releases when we make history! :-P
