I know I’m blind and blonde, but…

I’m looking at the Microsoft Live Earth concert site (they have concerts playing right now, and will be for the next 24 hours) but I must be missing something. Is there a damn schedule? I can’t find it. Oh, and I’m not the only one who is having problems finding the schedule, either. David in Chicago called me and asked me the same thing.

  1. Am I the only one who noticed that the Windows Media stream of the concert to stop global warming was sponsored by chevy.

    Way Way too funny!

  3. I was at the London gig, and it was stunning.

    And, just for anybody curious (Tomi Itkonen?) – despite Microsoft’s involvement with the Live Earth project, there wasn’t a single mention of Windows Live, Xbox Live, Office Live, Games for Windows Live or even MSN (apart from the website address for the Live Earth concert on the programs and banner). What was nice about the gig is that the organisers or the sponsors actually didn’t advertise or promote their services at all inside the stadium, and only Phillips had a banner outside.

    Kudos to MS and the sponsors for not detracting from such a well organised and important series of gigs.

  5. Yea, seemed really easy to find, frankly. I thought it was a great thing. Loved the fact that I could find it on tv too.

  9. Big up MSN for doing a sterling job on putting this up X-platform and not forcing us Mac Fans to do something other than use our fave browsers.

  10. The experience works great on our Vista with IE7! :) And the concerts are amazing running through our Windows Media Center thanks to Bravo TV and DirecTV.

    Just messing with you guys. But the concerts are great. Enjoy them. As mentioned above, lose the tech mind for a little while and soak up the cause. We all need to do our part for our grandchildren.

    Catch some concert details, links to the cities and tips on conservation here.

  12. Awfull experience to be honest this website. It won’t work on my linux box (which could be expected), in windows it’s pretty flacky with constant reloading (shame because wolfmother was on).

    It doesn’t work on my mobile (N95) so they’ve decided to not include mobile devices.

    Furthermore I can’t understand why they are constantly unable to create stuff browser agnostic. Also makes me wonder why they seem be using DRM’ed files as they tend to make you’re PC work harder and thus you use more energy….

    But on the bright side, I’ve just taken my radio set out of the closet and it just works.

    I find it rather hard to believe that those schedules would not be found electronic versions of those publications on Google News or Yahoo! News.

    Which one?

    That schedule is only the starting time in each city – not an indivdual artist estimated start time breakdown. If you click on the bios, there is no start time information by artist.

    Is someone supposed to watch for 28 hours straight to see their favorite band? If that is the plan, that is not respectful of a user. (Not to mention it wastes energy!)

    I’m still looking as are many other people, for an artist estimated time schedule.

    Thanks for the efforts so far.

  18. The concert provides a very good marketing opportunity for MS to mix their Live product line into the global environmental message:

    Xbox Live, Live Earth, Office Live, Live Search, Windows Live…

    Anyway, the company is on a good cause. Thanks for that.

  20. The schedule was tough to find — and not to bash MS or anything, but I’m trying to figure out why I have to use IE for the ‘full experience’. I should be able to view it in any browser. I have a special place in my heart for this concert, since we know one of the performers in the London segments, and it would be really nice not to have the computer freeze cold in the middle because IE takes the whole thing over.
