Macworld Live Blogging via CoveritLive? Nope. CoveritDead. Twitter Dies, Too.

CoveritLive is supposed to change live blogging. What better opportunity to debut than Macworld? Except that I am off to a shaky start trying to watch Crunchgear’s coverage:

Update: Now the CrunchGear CoveritLive page does not load at all. Coveritdead. thumbs_down

Update: Fake Steve Jobs also tried CoveritLive, then attempted to switch to Twitterwhich died, too.

Well, at least CrunchGear’s mothership, TechCrunch stayed with the conservative, manual updates… their coverage works.
