    Why live streaming? Isn’t the power of podcasting the time-shifting aspect?

    of course it is. that said, some of my clients like to offer a “Live” show – despite the fact that most of the audience downloads and listens to the content on their own time…

    and livestreaming from trade shows allows those not in attendance to get a real-time feel for the event…

    thanks for checking this out!
