Live Bullfight - thanks to Skype

Last night I got a behind-the-scenes look at a bullfight in Madrid - live out of a TV truck. Thanks to a good friend who was mixing the input from 28 TV cameras for Spanish TV and thanks to skype I got a short but highly interesting look at what goes on - at a bullfight and in highest tech TV. Very cool. Too bad for the poor bulls, though, whose fate is sealed. I got to witness one of the bulls taking a part of his adversary with him, though.
Most awesome thing about this experience is how easy it is becoming to share information and video throughout the world. I know that isn't so new anymore and I've been using skype for a while now. Getting moderated and commented input and the possibility to see through the eyes of 28 different cameras put a new dimension on that experience for me, though.
