Wirecast - now a free tool for YouTube Partners

Hi chugalug community, 



I was intrigued to hear that YouTube is offering Wirecast, some excellent software that usually sells for several hundred dollars, as a free tool for "YouTube Partners." Wirecast allows an individual (or nonprofit organization or company) to broadcast a multi-camera video shoot (television style) over the web. I see this as opening up a new way to multiply the community voice bringing untold stories to light. 


I'm not sure what it takes to become a YouTube Partner, but I think I might have enough YouTube subscribers and viewers. (You need to have more than 1,000 YouTube subscribers.) 

A colleague of mine in Boston, Steve Garfield, is itching to try out Wirecast and is looking to bump his subscribers up to more than 1,000. If you have a YouTube account, you can subscribe to Steve Garfield at
