ASZ: Live at the Democratic National Convention

ASZ’s Daniel DiRito will be reporting next week from the Democratic National Convention. We have some exciting plans in the works, including live interactive blogging and video/audio streams of floor interviews and convention activities. We’re stoked…

This is a pretty exciting announcement, on several levels.

Starting Monday, 8/25, All Spin Zone’s Daniel DiRito (who is also the blogmaster at Thought Theater) will be covering the Democratic National Convention live from Denver as a credentialed blogger.

“So what?”, you might ask. “You won’t be able to swing a dead cat and not hit a blogger at the convention.”

Here’s what. We’ve been testing some bleeding edge technology that promises to push the boundaries of live web coverage capabilities, including an interactive live blogging interface (yes, ASZ readers get to participate also) and a live, streaming audio / video feed of Daniel as he works the convention floor, conducts interviews, and gives us his impressions of the proceedings. We’ve been blown away by the capabilities of the technology, and think that you will be, as well.

Complete details will be rolled out in the next couple of days, but suffice it to say that it will be difficult to find a more personal (and non-corporate media controlled) source of independent convention coverage on the web than you’ll get next week on ASZ.

In between Daniel’s live coverage stints, Steven and I will be offering our own commentary on convention developments and other news of the day. It looks to be an exciting week, so we hope you’ll bookmark ASZ and join us as the festivities unfold!
