Senate webcast up and running

As promised, you can check out the Senate's webcast online now.

Now, I don't know what you were hoping to see, but I was kind of hoping to see more than a handful of (the backs of) senators. A pan across the room every once and a while would have been nice as well, maybe a zoom in on the person talking . . .

I don't want to sound unappreciative or anything, because this is a step in the right direction, but the camera really doesn't show everything it could have, and should have. The one camera angle (as compared to the three cameras that were originally installed and then taken down) came after an amendment to the webcasting measure that was included in the bill that passed last Friday. That amendment was sponsored by Sen. John Sapien.

  1. If one camera is all we are going to get, the least they could do is look into it.

    In the U S House of Representatives, speakers make their way to a podium to speak. It wouldn't be to much to ask, considering.
