    Very interesting. I've been trying to access the Decorah Eagle site and it's down. So I googled ;) Is Ustream down and got this:

    Under Attack

    Makes me wonder what's going on in Russia.

    It's a live streaming service that people or organizations use. The Decorah Eagle cam uses Ustream to live stream its nest cam where you can watch a eagle pair raising its chicks.
    It's similar to you tube.

    Also commonly used in video podcasts. And for live Skate Canada events not blocked by the major networks. :)
