What do we see so far with Live Earth? Well, if you don't use Internet Explorer, you get a tiny Quick Time window. Boo! :( If you use Internet Explorer, you figured it would be awesome right? No! It's also not full screen. There is an option to make it full screen, but the resolution is not good enough... it's blocky. So the regular resolution is bigger than the Quicktime/non-IE version, but still not full screen. Gee, thanks Microsoft.
Oh, and get this. Australia concert has started but you can't even access it on IE. You click on the concert link and nothing happens!! Firefox/Quick time is running though. Hope they fix that problem before some real network traffic comes through.
Anyhoo, I'm really only interested in the concert on the Kyoto Stage. Haven't been able to find if it is being broadcast anywhere (HD TV or XM radio). Looks like the Tokyo one is partially on Sundance channel. Here's Kyoto Stage lineup:

Yeah, I don't know why Nyman is playing there...but that's okay. The big news is Yellow Magic Orchestra!! First reunion under that name in over 10 years. They have been playing a little under the name Human Audio Sponge over the last 2-3 years.
Well, the rest of the lineup is here:
Only other artists I'm kind of interested in are: The Police and Spinal Tap (not together, unfortunately)
If anyone finds out info about the Kyoto broadcast (other than the web, please post!)
