With all the media talking about how the Texas Tribune did this magical thing live streaming the Wendy Davis filibuster, I felt I needed to remind our friends these waters are well explored.

There are many perspectives from the fight for marriage equity. Here is one mini-documentarty seen through Randi Reitan's family's journey.

This is my current tech fixation. The video is a touch cheesy, but this large-scale 3D printing is blowing my mind. Who wants to start a company to do this work? If I were to start another company, this might it.

Give it a go and let us know what you think. I hear there might be some big live-events happening in MN tomorrow. Now you can watch wherever you have a smartphone and connectivity.

Dance to make you think about how oil companies are destroying the environment. Dance to make you think about how environmental destruction hurts women around the world. +The UpTake's new #leadership profile: Ananya Chatterjea.

Story
Introduction

Hi! I am the co-founder and executive director of The UpTake, a national, nonprofit, online video newsgathering and broadcasting organization dedicated to transparency in democracy through truth in reporting. 

Based in Saint Paul, Minnesota, The UpTake was founded in 2007 to webcast live political events, cover community-based social justice movements, provide civic engagement and offer citizen journalist training to any who want it.

The UpTake won recognition for its coverage of the 2008 Republican National Convention in Saint Paul, and of the months-long 2008-2009 recount and trial in the Norm Coleman/Al Franken U.S. Senate race. The UpTake has also watchdogged thousands of hours of the Minnesota Legislature, providing more live coverage than any other media outlet, including public television stations. The UpTake has won three coveted Page One Awards from the Minnesota chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and in 2008 was recognized as a Top 10 website by the Center for Public Integrity.

A longtime professional sculptor, I live in Saint Paul with my wife and two kids.
