For those of you are are interested in keeping up with all things “popely”, I’d like to share an excerpt from an e-mail I received from a visitor to my site. (I know, this is a lazy post, but things at work are crazy with the lead up to final exams next week…I’ll be back to a normal frequency of posts by the end of next week. – in the meantime, please hang in there – thanks for your patience!)
I’m part of a small team of journalists in Chicago who have put together something new that I thought might interest you. We are going to cover the Pope’s visit to America in a new way.
We are working on a website called www.LiveNewsCameras.com The concept is simple, let people watch news as it happens anywhere in the world…raw, unedited on your computer at work or home.
We have been working on providing live video of the Pope’s visit to America from many different television stations. On Monday April 14th from 6-7pm CST we will have an experimental internet broadcast about the Catholic religion. We will have on experts and commentators that the webcast viewers can chat with live. We will look at the issues facing the Church and discuss the importance of this visit. It is a national effort that you can see on http://www.livenewscameras.com. We of course hope to have raw feeds of the Pope’s travels at every possible opportunity. We are the only website that we know that is devoting this sort of effort to gather all of these live feeds into one location.
