Obama's Online Town Hall

I thought that Obama's first online town hall this morning was great and I hope that he will continue to use this interactive format.  He answered questions from the audience as well as video questions that were submitted online.  According to the Washington Post, "92,000 people submitted 104,000 questions and cast 3.6 million votes" to see which questions the President would answer.  Seems pretty successful to me!

Coachella Music and Arts Festival

I am so excited because AT&T Music is going to be webcasting from the Coachella Music and Arts Festival in California next month.  Their website does not say exactly which bands they will be showing, but I am really hoping that they will show The Cure's headlining performance on Sunday, April 19th!!  :)

Fabchannel - I Will Miss You!!

I am so sad to learn from TechCrunch today that live concert website Fabchannel is going out of business on March 13.  I was such a huge fan of the site for several reasons: they had great concerts from bands I already knew and bands that were fun to discover, the production quality was great, they advertised details of the events well in advance, and they archived the events afterwards.  I will truly miss you Fabchannel!!  Fabchannel, which shows concerts live from Amsterdam, is blaming its demise on "bad economic prospects within the music and online advertising market."  So sad...
