Brian's post yesterday on Greenpeace protests in Chicago (updated at Greenpeace Activists Scale 450-ft Smokestack on 100 Year-Old Chicago Coal Plant has an interesting feature: an interview video done live from the site. I wrote in the Newsletter:

We have been experimenting with new tech ideas on TreeHugger like TreeHuggerLive, [see our interview of David Orr and watch the debate tomorrow]. But the real killer app for this tech may be live coverage of breaking news; we try it for the first time with Brian's coverage of a protest in Chicago, recorded yesterday. It's a bit sketchy and Brian needs a shave, but watch out, Mainstream Media!
