I am working on some video form the Right Nation 2010 event. So far I have a few minutes of Glenn Beck and Illinois Representative Aaron Schock already finished.
I’ll start with the beginning of Glenn Beck’s more than hour long address to the gathered. His talk was well received, chock full of humor and patriotism, and left the crowd highly energized once he was done.
I have captured his first few minutes of his part of the program (as they didn’t allow us to record the whole thing).
Next up is Illinois Representative Aaron Schock’s press conference. Unfortunately I only have a few minutes of this because the memory in my camera was full and the thing shut down on me. Sigh.
Here is my Twitter stream of the night for a blow-by-blow (my last tweet is on top):
Final attendance at #rn2010: 5,416

I have to say, THIS is a perfect example of how Twitter is used effectively — if I do say so myself. I had quite a few tweets from folks saying that they followed the night on my feed, so this worked out quite well.
Of course, I could not tweet every speaker because there were times when I was in the media room interviewing the notables. But I was able to do Almost all of Beck’s address.
More video to come…
