Time: 8:56 AM
Sorry for the lack of posts...it's not like I don't have any news to report on BUT it's been a rather busy week in Connecticut.
Over at MyLeftNutmeg, I did two live blogs which took up the entire day (and one went into the night).
Both live blogs centered on events happening at the State Capitol. The first live-blog focused on Tuesday's Judiciary Committee public hearing where several important items were addressed such as proposal to relax marijuana laws, a proposal concerning prison population, modification to parole hearings, increase protection for correction officers, etc. Pretty intense stuff and that hearing didn't end until well after 10PM.
The second live-blog on Thursday wasn't as bad time wise but just as important...the banking committee's investigative hearing into AIG. Lets just say that this hearing was a MEDIA EVENT as just about every outlet packed the room with cameras, photographers, and reporters...
Now I don't do a normal live blog where I just type about what's happening and offer my take on things. No...that would be too easy. Instead, I kick things up a notch and post video clips of the proceedings as close to real time as possible. Since CT-N covered both meetings, it was rather easy to monitor the events and post the video clips as it happened. Kick in the whole tweetering stuff I did on top of that and you start to understand why Danbury took a back burner this week.
All in all I had a great time live-blogging as it keeps you on your toes and makes you push blogging to it's limits. Now that I have a new server and computer in the house, hopefully I'll be able to push the envelope even further in the near future.
...and with that being said, I'm back to covering the whacky world of Danbury politics. Let the silly season begin!
