Livestream will be the most-definitive medium of the 21st century, just as film was the most-definitive medium of the 20th century. Time has come for all livestreamers of the world to unite because we are the new media!!!

We are putting a call out for delegates to the first-ever International Livestream Congress (ILC). To make it accessible & inclusive to everyone, it will be 100% ONLINE from Friday the 13th until the equinox on Saturday the 21th.

Panelists include the best of the best of the leading-edge livestreamers worldwide & honored invitees such as tech developers, artists, communication theorists, filmmakers and “defenders of the faith” like the lovely people at www.Livestream.com, www.Ustream.tv & www.Bambuser.com who have the best LS-servers, gear, software and apps on the planet.

Btw & sad to say, most-academia people won’t be invited to speak cuz most have no real clue as to what livestreaming is all about because its so young a field, there are no books on it and, there’s almost no LS-theory out there except by that one lone-wolf – Occupy Toronto’s Dee Shanger. So, stay tuned for the list of panelists & training-session facilitators.

Pls note: for u filmmakers attending, pls note that this yrs TIFF (film fest) is from Sept 5-15; for u OMie’s out there, Autumn Equinox (Sept.21); and for everyone else, this Congress ends on a Friday night so u can spend an extra weekend with ur new friends in Toronto eh. We also know that these dates fall on OWS’s 2nd-year anniversary on Tues, Sept 17th, so in honor of that, please note we will be doing something very, very special at this ILC to celebrate this fact. Our dates are fixed for numerous reason – some of which are outlined above – and in as much as we would love to move the dates of the Congress, we will work with it, plus Toronto is only a 8-9hr drive from NYC eh.
