    Current TV's Angela Morgenstern joins MediaShift's Mark Glaser on the Election Day Live-Stream

    Election Day is here, and it’s time for our live-chat to discuss how this cycle’s campaigns have changed, with the advent of social media, memes, online organizing and fundraising, instant fact-checking, targeted ads and so much more.

    This year, with the help of Ustream as webcasting partner, we’ll be live-streaming our chat on video. And the filming will happen at Current TV’s San Francisco headquarters.

    As usual, I will be joined by an all-star lineup of new media experts, comedians, and social media gurus to look at how online coverage of Election Day is going — with pointers to the most innovative mashups, maps, video blogs and more.


    Be sure to join us and ask questions in the “social stream” that will run alongside the video. The plan is to live-stream from 12:15 pm to 4:15 pm Pacific Time.
