Internet Camera
2000

First interactive webcast of a national political convention
This Internet camera made possible the first interactive webcast of a national political convention. In 2000, the Republican Party allowed the placement of five interactive, 360-degree "Be Here" cameras on the convention floor in Philadelphia. This particular camera was installed next to the Texas delegation, and streamed to the World Wide Web by Pseudo.com. Internet viewers could watch events unfold--unedited--from the camera's vantage point 24 hours a day.

Notes
Other webcasts made possible by Be Here cameras: Superbowl XXXIV, the Summer and Winter X Games, and the Sundance Film Festival
