Music Acts In Youtube Live 2008 And Youtube Gathering 2008

Youtube Live marked a new era in shows and performances – both in music and other art forms. Last night was the first ever annual Youtube Live Concert, and it was everything I’d hoped it be. Interesting that it was neither an award show, or a talent show – rather, it was a performance show – with skits and more – and it was a blast to witness.

What was so great about Youtube Live?

Aside from the lineup of performances and more, the first thing I noticed was the option of choosing between 3 camera angles:

Notice at the bottom right corner are three little boxes. Those 3 boxes represent 3 different camera angles: Main Stage, BackStage, or Off Stage. I’m used to watching The Grammy’s or the MTV Video Music Awards or even last night’s American Music Awards and being stuck on just one camera angle. I love the internet and new technology, and this was a great feature!

Music Acts take center stage at Youtube Live 2008

There were no shortage of reputable guests both of Internet fame and mainstream fame. The picture above shows BeardyMan who did a killin performance during the event of his Beat Boxing skills. I quickly realized that as the show went on that I was perfectly comfortable watching it from my computer rather than my television, and that this is how things may be in 10 years. Of course, the fusion of TV and internet is inevitable, but this was the first major award show streamed exclusively online, and is a big first step towards the internet’s growth as a true and effective platform. Check out this video of Joe Satriani‘s performance:

Music Acts dominate the Event

There was also no shortage of Music Acts. Above is a clip showing one of my guitar hero’s Joe Satriani playing with FunTwo. Later in the event was a great performance by Philadelphia’s very own Spinto Band, and later on The Sick Puppies did a great performance backing their infamous Free Hugs Campaign video

Funny Skits also segway’d throughout Youtube Live 2008

Like all award shows, there were many funny skits that acted as segways and fillers between acts. In this clip here it shows a Barack Obama Impersonator and Lisa Nova impersonating Sarah Palin. This was the first year the 2008 Olympics were streamed online, too – so the internet is really changing how things are released and events are held.

Ever been to a Youtube Gathering? Well, I have, and its always a good time. I have a successful Youtube Channel and I love being part of the community. My love for people clearly surpasses my love for technology, although both are important in my life. But when the two come together, that’s what makes me the happiest. Whether its a Tweetup with my Twitter friends, Improv Everywhere, Youtube Gathering, Seesmic Meetup, BlogWorld and New Media Expo in Los Angeles, Karaoke Party, NYTVF, or even a simple TechSushi Meetup – I’m in… all the way!

Michael Buckley of ‘What the Buck’ posted this video titled “OMG! See you Saturday in NYC!!” which is just one of many that promote the event. He too, was part of Youtube Live, as many others like Julia Nunes, William Sledd, and What The Buck, and many others. Check out Bo Burnham‘s performance.

So what’s a Youtube Gathering? And Why Go?

Being a user of the Internet, I love the idea of connecting with people all over the world. I enjoy meeting people through social sites like Twitter, MySpace, and even Youtube, and this allows me to see them, meet them, and hang out with them. We all already have something in common – our love for technology and social networking, so these meetups are always a great time!

I remember a few months ago I attended ‘YoTube’ Philly on 7-12-08 and came away learning alot about people and the entire internet community. Everybody is passionate about something. Whether that passion is wine, bikes, music, people, friends, or family, then when you get all these people together with all these different backgrounds, and passions and interests, its always great to be part of something big.

So let’s stay connected, so feel free to follow me on Twitter, subscribe to my Youtube, and more.

So what did you think of Youtube Live?


  1. There was a medic station, child day care, a food court, sleeping quarters, hundreds of signs and banners, live music, and a sense of camaraderie and purpose you’d struggle to find in most American cities, possibly anywhere else in this country. …

  2. Until I found this I thgohut I’d have to spend the day inside.

  3. Prazer Ico,Sou novo aqui e gostei muito do blog.Agora, será que o pessoal não sabe entender os textos.O Ico não falou em momento algum que a FIA não protege a Ferrari, falou é que a McLaren também é protegida e que a proteção depende do interesse político do momento, só isso.Abraços.

  4. Actually, I don’t think Dark Opal likes all that brutish. He strikes me as a sort of cultured guy despite his obvious buffness, kinda like Attila the Hun from the Mulan movie. Incredibly strong, badass, and intimidating, but with a quiet british-y voice and an air that makes you think he could just as easily outsmart you as overpower you. I kinda imagine seeing him playing an organ at one point in the story while a minion is relating bad news to him.In other news, this needs to exsist. NOW.

  5. שנה הבאה ברצוני להתחיל לעבוד כיועצת בבית ספר שעובד באופק חדש,מה יהיה שכרי? כיצד יורכב? מה לגבי שבתון? אני חוזרת לאחר שבתון וחלת לאיזו נשכורת יתייחסו אודה לתשובת אפי

  6. I was more than happy to find this net-site.I wished to thanks on your time for this glorious learn!! I positively enjoying every little little bit of it and I have you bookmarked to take a look at new stuff you weblog post.

  7. . Pretty film, but chock full of cafeteria spiritualism.And I love these posts too. :-) I imagine that the second question is asked by someone who is frustrated with verb tenses' lack of conviction.

  8. I appreciate you taking to time to contribute That’s very helpful.

  9. Hola, me ha saltado la inquietud de ser funcionario publico, no especificamente por el dinero y cosas asi, si no mas bien para cumplir un dia mi sueño de ayudar. Soloq ue no conosco los requisitos en mexico. Y no se si pueda, si saben podrian decirme. Mil gracias.

  10. probably gonna be nixed by the moderators but…new meaning for the term “the death seat.” we used to say “I got shotgun!” to ride in the front passenger’s seat, the other passengers would say “yeah, you got the death seat…”Seriously tho, this thing looks really awesome and simple but a roll bar would be good for those OTB moments…-S

  11. This is a visually beautiful cookbook – one recipe per page, which I like. The recipes look great, and are very similar to what my husband’s family (Lebanese) makes. However, we were surprised to see no lamb, which is very popular in Lebanese cooking.

  12. Ken Monahan – That little girl is the most photogenic kid I think I have ever seen. That black and white shot of her running with the pinwheel captures the carefreee spirit of childhood perfectly and the fact that she is running away from the camera makes it so easy for the viewer to identify with her.

  13. Ramona! Stort grattis! Jag måste pinsamt nog erkänna att jag inte läst någon av dina böcker, men nu börjar det snart bli semesterdags så då borde det finnas lite tid för lite lata dagar med en bok under näsan. Lyckas till med både författarskapet och förläggandet i framtiden!

  14. The taxes are a drop for the US. It is wars and horrible political cover that really tax us. And it is not just “Jews”, it is many people. So the wars clearly have many cheerleaders…. follow the money.

  15. I noticed that after Gov. Palin got such a hugh response, McCain seemed to lose interest in actually running. He lost his forcefullness and just went through the motions. He never followed up on any mistakes at the debates. The McCain camp did not even follow up on bidens mistake on the Constitutional duties of the VP. I never did understand why McCain never followed up on anything.

  16. Just keep paying everything on time, and if u have 5-6 credit cards, use all of them even charge $5 on it.. and pay that one off at end of the month… you will see it improve automatically in matter of 2-3 months

  17. Very efficiently written article. It will be valuable to all people who employess it, at the same time as myself. Preserve up the great operate – can’r wait to examine far more posts.

  18. Rogerio disse:Amigos, tenho um 3GS At&T com o 3.0 jailbreak e unlock, baseband 04.26.08. Consigo fazer essa atualização? Tem tantos treads por aí que estou bem confuso… Abração! 0  0

  19. With respect to the carbon tax, I think there are fundamental problems with the way it is implemented. If producing carbon dixoide is to be taxed, then logically coverting CO2 to oxygen should be rewarded, and we should be credited for growing trees and such in comprable amounts.I also think the caps and trading should apply to individuals rather than power companies, although I should be able to trade my allotment to a power company if so desired.

  20. This is simply another case of the imitators paling in comparison to the bands they are ripping off. Cocteau Twins, Sundays, Beach House, Bedazzled Records, etc. Yawn.

  21. I love the print–such a beautiful, modern baby blanket. My daughter would love to cuddle up underneath it. I’d love to win the yellow-trimmed one. :)Thanks for the chance!Vanessa

  22. umberto,ok ai tuoi commentipiù interessanti della telecronacasempre più sottotono, imprecisa, dimessa e piena di errori…o stiamo diventando troppo…mahChest’ èTi ringrazio per i complimenti, ma il terreno di confronte è inaffidabile.Il cronista della RAI è inascoltabile.Mi tocca dire che siamo fortunati per i commenti di Dossena…quello che quando giocava in Nazionale spesso deludeva, ma il piede era buono, eccome….

  23. can walk away from a mortgage here in the uk… it’s like declaring yourself bankrupt…. you will mess up your credit rating… you won’t be able to get another mortgage…or get credit for 10 years… but still.

  24. I went to tons of links before this, what was I thinking?

  25. We have signals on what we sell at fxtradersignal com we don’t give no system or anything like that we just send you signals when we receive them ourselves. Our lowest option is £10 per month

  26. “Ian Smith could never have achieved any political prominence in prewar Britain, because his origins were decidedly middle-class”: what, unlike Ramsay MacDonald, who was the bastard son of a farm servant, and twice PM?

  27. Bomber, are you thick or are you just playing silly buggers.The bill makes all corrective smacks – light and hard – a criminal offence. If you commit a criminal offence you are breaking the law.I am bewildered that you find this comcept so difficult.

  30. You have the monopoly on useful information-aren’t monopolies illegal? ;)

  31. Reviewed on: August 8, 2011Old style This hotel is true Vegas. It is smoky, smells like beer and the casino has the cheapest roulette table in town and actual coin slot machines. The dealers are actually personable and talk with you while you gamble. The hotel room isn’t anything special either. We had fun in the casino and didn’t spend a ton of money to play for a few hours. Won’t stay here again, but will go back for the casino.

  32. Play informative for me, Mr. internet writer.

  34. Why do I bother calling up people when I can just read this!

  35. At last! Someone who understands! Thanks for posting!

  36. Americans would also say Dickensian, so yes, the term “Dickensonian” is a partial cause of my befuddlement. For awhile, I thought it might be a reference to Dickinson College, but couldn’t find any connection between Mollie Katzen and Dickinson, so decided that probably wasn’t the case. As for the spicing, I didn’t realize it was typical of 19th century English cooking. That’s quite interesting. I need to go crack some books. Thanks!

  37. "I get the impression that he genuinely thinks that Jewish behaviour is, at base, a misdirected fear of Whites that can be reasoned with and, thus, removed or allayed."I think there's some truth in that idea. However, if true it is psychology and can't be reasoned with. The psychology might be crackable but you'd need to use psychological methods to do it. Reason won't work.If it is psychology we better hope it is crackable because otherwise as they increasingly screw up in both America and Europe we're heading for the Samson option.

  38. , too, how grateful she is to have her kids’ IEP teams part of their lives and how much they’ve helped her family with their expertise. It would resonate with people.

  39. i recently have definitely happened in the article as admire him that much. in this has to I mean companions at once by twitter inform. This is surprisingly true, however. I of this nature that much. We appreciate that you.VA:F [1.6.5_908]please wait…VA:F [1.6.5_908](from 0 votes)

  40. "…but do you really think they've made mistakes so completely brainless as to be on par with Maddow mistaking a VERY OBVIOUS parody site." a very sensitive adam"…according to a study from The Ohio State University…lots of conservatives seem to not understand the intrinsic, underlying joke of The Colbert Report"I've got lots more, adam. You're going to lose this argument.

  41. benjamin,dein kommentar ist berechtigt!warum werden diktaturen wie thailand in dem unter den schutz der sog.behörden kinder in die sexssklaverei verkauft werden,ebenso von der nwo unterstützt wie weissrusland und andere diktaturen wie saudi arabien?also ich finde die antwort ist offensichtlich,weil es der nwo noch nie um menschenrechte ging sondern nur um macht und den freut mich,das du das ebenso siehst.

  42. Thanks for taking the time to post. It’s lifted the level of debate

  43. That’s really thinking out of the box. Thanks!

  44. Now I know who the brainy one is, I’ll keep looking for your posts.

  45. I think many of us do release those emotions when no one is around. I sometimes go for a drive to the beach and release my tears by the sea. I think you are right we do hold back and hold on to those emotions because we are taught to do so. There are healthy ways to release these emotions.

  46. Pinning this to make before my basil is gone! My hubby LOVES tomato soup, and I never make it! Your pictures are great, too!Visiting from Miz Helen’s.Amanda

  47. I don’t think they’d add the same tang that a pickled jalapeno would give. Plus they’d shrivel up more because there’s less water in them. It’s worth a try if you don’t have pickled. Let me know how it goes!

  48. I simply want to mention I am just beginner to weblog and seriously enjoyed this web page. More than likely I’m going to bookmark your blog . You really come with awesome articles and reviews. Thank you for sharing with us your website page.

  49. Howdy! Would you mind if I share your blog with my facebook group? There’s a lot of folks that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Many thanks

  50. I’m also commenting to let you understand what a fine discovery my wife’s child encountered checking your webblog. She even learned too many pieces, which included what it is like to have a wonderful teaching style to make other individuals with ease fully understand specified impossible topics. You undoubtedly exceeded her expected results. Thank you for distributing such beneficial, trusted, edifying as well as unique guidance on that topic to Sandra.

  51. I hope so too! I remember reading your blog posts when I was going through my most recent loss and it made me feel a little less alone in it all, so thank you also! Thanks for the support, it means a lot. Here’s to hoping that 2011 is our year . . .

  52. Completely Agree with Nitin. If India has to progress, necessity for communal representation has to be eradicated. All appointment should be made based on merit and our system should be more meritocratic.

  53. Loving Eden's Edge! And you are so right… I LOVED the original Kelly song, but this version is so much better!The good thing about the Taylor video is that it has Matt Sarenson from Friday Night Lights in it, but otherwise I am not a fan of that song :(Thanks for the awesome songs this week!!!

  54. It’s a real pleasure to find someone who can think like that

  55. This fabric looks very interesting! I don’t draw or paint but I do Zentangle! Google it if you haven’t heard of it. I find the Zentangle method of repeated patterning relaxing and rewarding.

  56. Reading this makes my decisions easier than taking candy from a baby.

  57. what do people with only two kids do all day? Brian says:June 19, 2012 at 11:46 am40 -Patricia, would you please talk to my lazy stay at home wife? I don’t know what she does all day. Probably eating bon-bon’s and watching soap operas. She says raising a 3 year old and a 7 month old by herself is like hard or something.

  58. October 4, 2010 at 9:04 pmSrini,You report is fascinating. There’s so much here I will be to return and review and reflect again. You are clearly committed to blogging.I have a question about your subscriber number. Does that word refer to email subscribers only? I feel confused about how bloggers use that word and when it refers to both email and RSS and when it doesn’t.Thanks so much. .-= Sandra Lee´s last blog ..The true meaning of Zen Hint- it’s not a habit =-.

  59. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’dlike to send you an email. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

  62. scrive:Ciao PaolaLa meditazione aiuta la concentrazione in quanto ci educa a non farci dominare dai nostri pensieri e a rimanere concentrati e focalizzati.Tuttavia questi risultati si possono ottenere con almeno 100 modi e tecniche differenti.Se non ti viene naturale meditare seduta non fa niente. ognuno ha la sa strada (come hai sottolineato anche tu) importante è trovarla.come ho scritto anche nell’articolo io non sono un maestro in quest’arte ma ne riconosco comunque i benefici.Se ti va puoi anche condividere le tecniche che usi tu pe mantenere la concentrazione.Ciao e a presto

  63. “truth” according to who? alex jones or jim jones? don’t make me laugh – while you and your kind are bathing in your juvenile conspiracy theories and indulging yourself in inanity – we are making loads of money in the real world.

  65. Eh oui, les humoristes de France inter sont virés… Et du côté des émissions c’est aussi une hécatombe. Une pensée pour l’émission nocturne « allô la planète » d’Eric Lange, géniale conversation planétaire de 23h16 à 1h00, elle aussi supprimée, reste ce soir et demain et ce sera fini. Je me demande par quoi Philippe Val compte remplacer tout ça…

  66. Heisan SølviSå flotte juletre og stjerne-girlandere du hekler! En annerledes variant til vimpler!Selvfølgelig hiver jeg meg med på denne trekningen!Tusen takk for koselig kommentar og award. Jeg sendte deg akkurat en formiddagsmail.Så nydelige Bergens-bilder! Nesten så jeg må vise min mann bergenseren disse!Ha en glad dag!Klem fra Kaspara

  67. Danaa,But your opinion is based on an innate sense of fairness (whether wrenched out of you in sensitivity classes or not…;-)) and much common sense. It comes from an ability to observe then to honor those observations because intellectual honesty demands it. That’s what I’ve noticed about you over the years here.

  68. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say fantastic blog!
