I've had a few issues with uploading some video, but I'll take care of that when I get back home tonight. Anyway, some updates:
Dave Matthews just took the stage. He's having a fine time here, and was rather amusing at the mini-press conference earlier (video to come). "We're aware of a certain amount of hypocrisy" about using fossil fuels when going on tours, he says, but the awareness coming from a concert of this size outweighs it. Like the energy it's taking to cool the media bubble, which is literally the size of a football field. And it's hot outside.
The Live Earth concert has now been going for more than 10 hours now, if you're measuring everything by one time zone. Sydney started at around 9 p.m. on the East Coast of the U.S. It was preceded by Al Gore giving a little Warm up webcast about his intention to run for pre...just kidding. It's all conservation, all the time.
Starting tomorrow in Sydney, Australia and continuing for the next 24 hours around the globe is the Al Gore-inspired Live Earth concert, which will feature 150 performers in eight cities around the world. It will be shown on more than 100 different channels, XM and Sirius radio, and online at MSN.com. But in case that's not enough, Fast Company will be live blogging the event, too.
