Here’s the link for the Senate debate live stream. It’s a different stream than our regular news stream (or classical or current). If folks are looking for that programming, it’s where it usually is. This is in addition.
Update. OK, it’s over and I guess the feed was OK. Let me just give you a little glimpse into how this happened. Basically a bunch of folks who work behind the scenes here, worked their tails off. When some of us online folks heard about the our debate plans, we said, “hey, why can’t we carry it live on the Web even if we’re not on the radio (which, would, by the way, been hugely expensive). All we needed was a phone line that worked. The MPR operations department — headed in this case by Steve Griffith — made it happen and Concordia College provided access to the phone line (we paid the long distance), and voila!!
OK, OK, I know it sounds like just another day but these are the sorts of things we think are possible online when not possible on the radio, and I think we’re going to try to Webcast a few more. There’s a debate and political calendar on the C2006 site. Please let us know if you find it of value; it’ll help at budget time. (g)
Update 8:50 p.m. – I’ll get the encoded version up as soon as possible It’s a little more problematic because a whole lot of the encoding process has to happen in real time.
Update 11:50 p.m. — Audio is now encoded. You can find it on the right hand side of the page (near the top column) here.
