History (short version)
Worldbridges began as a vision of a global network of homegrown webcasting. After years of experimenting with non-interactive webcasting and trying to envision how a homegrown webcasting network would function, production of live, interactive webcasts actually began in May of 2005. Since then, a variety of sites, shows, and communities have evolved. In addition to helping this new media of webcasting evolve and developing our component communities, Worldbridges is currently focusing on creating the policies and infrastructure that will be required to support significant scalable growth.
