Irish Labour Party* – Live streaming, Flickring, Twittering and blogging their conference

Labour on UStream

The Labour party is now without doubt the most web savvy political party in Ireland. More credit to them. Their conference is on this weekend and they’re using UStream to stream it for web viewers. They’re doing an online Q&A, they’ve got a Flickr stream, they’re using Twitter and of course there’s their blog. I’m well well impressed. Well done to them.

Also best of luck to Neilformer as he goes for the NEC.

    Cheers Damien. And I kinda missed the witty dig at the Labour kids!!

  3. Cool, I’ll subscribe to a few of those.

    Out of interest, do they allow for debate in the blog comments at the moment, or would we have to go elsewhere for that?

    so who’s actually doing it, how many paid people will they have at the conference looking after web stuff.

  7. Keith says:

    There’ll be two staff who are just doing web stuff, AFAIK, with a series of volunteers (some former staff, some members, etc) working on it too.
