I love watching the barista competitions online. Love it. The chat room on the side is a nice touch. Archiving video is neat when it's done...
But ustream.tv is absolutely dreadful. Just awful.
Spend the next few months figuring out how to:
Design a simple web site that has the streaming video and a chat room*, split the videos up and archive the competitors performances - get their competition coffees up on the site so everyone can see what they used and go buy them, arrange a deal with
ASCAP, BMI and SESAC and GET US OFF OF USTREAM!!!!
* http://usbaristachampionship.org is a nightmare.
