Live iPad coverage with iPhone, OWLE and Ustream

A couple of months ago I wrote a short post about using an iPhone for visual story telling. Today a site I regularly read called The Unofficial Apple Weblog used the OWLE, an iPhone 3GS and an app called Ustream Broadcaster to report on features of the new iPad directly from the Aspen Grove Apple store. They took questions from their site and almost instantly were able to answer them through a live demo. This is exactly the kind of forward thinking that will propel journalism into the future. They used existing technology and seamlessly created an interactive broadcast for relatively little cost. Newspaper people pay attention. I really enjoy reading TUAW and they also have a Colorado connection which makes it even better. If you are not already reading it, check it out.
