Puppycam popularity (Today Show, CNN, and NBC)

It all started 5 weeks ago, when a SF couple decided to setup a live puppy cam on Ustream. Ever since they hit the “broadcast now” button things have been interesting around the Ustream offices. Due to the “cuteness” of the puppies, the show, to quote NBC news anchor and managing editor Brian Williams, “has taken the web by storm.” 4 million people worldwide checked in on 6 of the most adorable puppies we’ve ever seen. It’s been remarkable to see how 6 little puppies have gotten so “big.”

The CNN segment is humorous. The Today Show segment is informative – make sure to watch!

Here are a few samples of their recent popularity:

Why Obama Won….

Signed Ustream hat by President Elect Barack Obama

Just joking!  Maybe I’m a little bias.

Can anyone guess where we got the signature from?


The New Media Election- And It Was Powerful

Tonight I sat back and watched with amazement one of our nation’s most sacred principles unfold live on Ustream.  Over a million people followed the election on Ustream today- from small election parties, to passionate professional broadcasts.

Whether you agree or not, are red or blue, Democrat or Republican, history was made today and many experienced this through our humble service.  Over the last 2 years, John, Gyula and I have had the opportunity to meet many people and see many things because of Ustream, but tonight, for me, was the most powerful.

Thank you to all who support our service.  We have many major announcements coming over the next few months and we will continue to push the limits of this powerful medium.

God Bless America!
