Coveritlive.com is a pretty nifty (& free) tool to let’s you provide live commentary from an event. (Live blogging. blogcasting?) You type your notes into a browser based interface and your commentary is streamed out to a viewer you can put on your blog, wiki or web page. Your virtual audience can comment back to you as well.
Even though it’s been around for a while, I first heard of it yesterday when Kathryn Greenhill posted a note to twitter that there would be live coverage of the Bridging Worlds conference in Singapore.
How could I resist setting up a test and having a little conference with myself. Within minutes of setting up an account, I had a viewer embedded on the wiki page I use for testing things like this. And I started broadcasting my coverage, which consisted of notes about the different features. You can see those notes in the embedded viewer below.
ScribbleLive appears to be a similar tool. But I don’t have time to test that today. Really need to get some other work done!
