Is anyone from DailyPaul going to cover Tampa with a camera?

That is awkwardly worded I admit--

1988vote (both of us) cannot go to Tampa--

We don't know anyone personally who can go. I have a real concern about the media blackouts, and I wonder if anyone on here is thinking of that--

How does information get out even to those of us on DP who want to know what is happening?

Any journalists on here? Does the 'revolution' have any journalists? Does anyone know? I am a 'babe in the woods' with regards to cameras; barely know how to use a digital camera. :)

How do those of us "out here" know what is going on down there? I wouldn't trust the MSM anyway, but I don't even have a television, and I know they will make those who support Ron Paul look bad--

I am but I will be every where. Paul Fest, USF, And Convention

I will stream some Paulfest

I am planning on streaming some of Paulfest, especially after hours campground parties and hopefully some behind the scenes stuff. I will be staying with some well known activists and many others will be stopping by our camp.

I don't have any fancy equipment so it will be from my smartphone, my ustream channel is http://ustream.tv/channel/paulfest

I don't want to take from the efforts of others so most of my streaming will hopefully be things others aren't streaming or at times they are offline.

The Liberty Live Stream Team has it!





"The Common Cause"

I have been shooting a film "The Common Cause" most of this year. My assistant and I are in the media pool for the Sun Dome event. If you have a strong story to tell and wish to be interviewed on camera...let my assistant know how to contact you in Tampa and 2-3 sentences on your story/effort/perspective. > mdoyle@sprintmusic.com.

"This isn't what the govern meant"

"Win the crowd and you will win your freedom"

does anyone have any info WILL THERE EVEN BE WIFI available?


sometimes they charge you for it. or give you a password to access it.

I can't imagine that the RNC will let this slide.

good question; techies? organizers?


looks like the Convention Center has WiFi

but don't know how they will handle it yet.

will it be free and clear or will it be like at a hotel with a password to enter - will there be a charge for the password?

I'm trying to find out.

I will!

I am working on a Hi-Def 1080p live stream from the floor.

After a fifth review of the 'prohibited items' list, it does NOT prohibit either my LAPTOP or my WEBCAM (which is way under the 'camera' limit)! I will have to carry it and extra batteries freehand because backpacks are prohibited (even though I could probably argue for it because it isn't for a 'camera' or 'camcorder' - but I won't just to avoid the arguement with 'Security').


Become the media.

Rights are like muscles; you must exercise them to keep them fit, or they will atrophy and die.

How about "fanny packs?"

I'd think you could put an arbitrary amount of stuff in a "fanny pack," depending on how much weight you can hang from your waist.

The restriction on "sticks" does kind of bother me, however. (no homemade "stadicam...")

Freedom is my Worship Word!

Just use a light-weight aluminum tripod,

Legs extended full-length will give your videos stability!
Don't use it as a "tri" pod, use it as a "stick"!

Galatians 5:1
It is for FREEDOM that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Wait For The Ban On Mobile Videoing!

Looking at the list of prohibited items, and the camera items included "except for the media" I'm wondering who they are going to define as "the media". I suspect it will be MSM only and no media badges for anybody else - and wait for the "on the day" ban on mobile phone videoing!!!

ACLU Police Accountability App

I wonder if it would be a good backup for every delegate to install and know how to use the ACLU police accountability app: http://www.aclu-nj.org/news/2012/07/03/aclu-nj-releases-poli...
in order to make sure that illegal activities of detention, use of force are recovered for post-convention litigation?

Rights belong to individuals, not groups; they derive from our nature and can neither be granted nor taken away by government. Ron Paul

I would imagine there will be a number of people using Twitter to get messages out - perhaps someone could start an official "RNC Twitter Feed' thread to get links to everyone who will be tweeting?

For those patriots who are working to make this event live to the world.

Be prepared for anything. They may tamp down or otherwise interfere with wifi signals at certain times in certain physical locations 'for national security purposes'.

Even if they say it's OK to have phones on the floor for people to take pictures, if it gets dicey on the floor, they are not gonna want that to be seen, and we all know how they like to change rules on the spot.

If you're running a rogue stream, don't stay in the same place the whole time- move around. If we can see it, they can too, and may try to hunt you down.

If they try to take your phone, don't raise a lot of hell about it. It's true, this should not be the kind of thing we should have to worry about these days, but fighting with them at this place and time will be a losing battle. There will be others streaming, and it's not worth getting NDAA'd over. Make sure you get enough info from the 'takers' so you can get it back later.

Batteries. They may not let people bring a bunch of spare batteries, except maybe for media. Assuming they let the phones in, get in touch with 4 or 5 people who have the same phone. Have them come in with the phones off and batteries fully charged, and when your battery gets low, swap out with them.

We have a team there... LIBERTY LIVE STREAM TEAM IS ON IT

Paul Festival Pics

Photos from Paul Festival can be found at:


If you're going to Paul Festival, take a camera or camera phone, take lots of pictures and post them there (and everywhere else.)

Same with the rally and as much as possible with the convention. I'm calling for a flood of Paul and Paul-related photos to hit the web during the convention. A little counter programming, if you will.

Be smart and stay safe.

I had...

... the same thought. However, since cameras are small and easy to get in, the problem is the WiFi/internet connection.

It would be gold worth if someone in the area could get an hold of an WiFi directional antenna which could cover the area.

We did not get press credentials to the RNC, but we do plan on live streaming. More info here: http://libertylivestreamteam.chipin.com/paul-fest-sundome-rnc

Yes, Freedom Broadcasting Network did...

but I have a very strong feeling you will see the odd "rogue" stream too.
