John Edwards to Ustream this Monday after debate, What will you ask him?

I just got word from Chris Yeh, the CEO of Ustream (who I advise) that John Edwards will be on Ustream after his debate on CNN to answer questions from the Ustream community.

What is Ustream? It’s a live video stream on the web + chat room interaction (and other features). What does this mean? This means that everyone who tunes in will have an opportunity to ask questions, be part of the community and talk to John Edwards.

I’ve started a list of key web battles by the presidential candidates, be sure to check out this list. The web is empowering everyone to communicate and for figures in power to reach others, and be more human.

So what will you ask him? leave a comment.

Update: Here’s the site where John Edwards will be streaming from.

    Funny you should mention Ustream and the debates, Mr. Ustream Advisor. I’m hoping to use Ustream to give a live feed from the spin room during and after the debate, using an old iBook for mobile streaming purposes a la JustinTV etc. Unfortunately, the Ustream flash applet doesn’t seem to want to take the sound from my Griffin iMic USB external mic adapter; keeps using the built-in mic regardless of my choice (the iMic works with YouTube’s flash applet, oddly enough). You ever hear of anyone successfully merging these two gadgets? Without the iMic, people will get the video but hear nothing but the murmur inside my laptop bag, and they could miss a classic Mike Gravel line or something. :-(

    Cancel that. Ustream’s new “Advanced settings” button seems to supercede the right-click Macromedia settings menu. Changing sources in the Ustream menu worked where the native one didn’t. All fixed! Stay tuned for debate goodness!

    For most of the history of politics and television, candidates have sought to control the message with spin doctors, attack ads, and sound bites. Ustream lets candidates cut through these layers of obfuscation and engage directly with voters in a way that no recorded video can. so goog for them! wonder if such practice is still used?
