Watched while sitting here at work. Very cool! I'd totally tune in! I suggested on the UStream page that you should consider doing this on a regular basis as an "upgrade" to RFB. As Troy Newton said, the Gorillapod idea is great, and you could even do vlogcasts while in traffic (setting up before moving, obviously). :)

That's an excellent idea. You could even take a Gorillapod to the concerts and mount it on a mic stand or something and constantly record without having to touch it. Nice!

I'm sorry that I'm late to reply to this (gotta make the bucks, you know!), but I am sincerely sorry you had to deal with this Wil. My fiancée and I have both said in the past that the life of a celebrity is difficult because you have to deal with fanatical people. Celebrities are, as you said, people too and should be met with the same respect that you would give a stranger on the street. I think people lose their common sense when they are around celebrity figures. I went to w00tstock 3.0 and bought a T-shirt as a souvenir as a memento of my first time attending. I intended to wait for an official opportunity to have everyone sign it, but judging by the initial crowd that stood near the lobby waiting for everyone, I decided against it for a few reasons, including: I didn't have a silver Sharpie to sign the black shirt with me as I didn't think ahead to bring one and didn't want to hold up the cast because I was unprepared;I still had an hour drive back home and it was getting late and I didn't want to be a risk to others on the road;I was too excited and shy to even say "Thank you" (instead, choosing Twitter & my blog to express my gratitude);but ultimately, it looked like there were a lot of people and I didn't want to add to that line because I knew everyone there had someone they wanted to meet up with or somewhere else that they'd probably like to go - like to sleep or something. It was a bit disheartening that I didn't get to come up and say "Hi!" and "Thank you!" for putting on the show, and even my fiancée knew it wasn't the choice I really wanted since she saw the excited look on my face after buying the shirt turn to disappointed acceptance when I chose to leave. But I do not regret it, since it was my decision to leave. Perhaps at some point in the future I will be able to give my gratitude in person, but, unlike the fanatics who had accosted you, I will do so in an appropriate situation. Perhaps then I can also express my gratitude for introducing my fiancée to the world of geek as one of the most friendly and accepting communities ever. P.S. Sorry for the disjointed thoughts. I just wanted to express that I, too, am a fan, but one who used common sense (and probably a lot more bashfulness).

Nice! I've been working on/off with Ubuntu for some time and have even set up a simple home file server using it and a VIA ARTiGO A1000. In fact, if it weren't for the fact that I seemed to have bought every webcam that has some issue or another in Linux, I would switch to it for all my systems!
