Watch this: What to watch live online in May

The world of online video is diverse. There is lots of content at Netflix and Amazon, but let's focus on Livestream.com, home of -- you guessed it -- live streaming content.

The end of "Mad Men" will leave a void in people's viewing schedule (not to mention hearts), but series creator Matthew Weiner will be talking at the New York Public Library. Tickets are sold out, but you can watch it live at 7 p.m. ET, May 20. The New York Public Library will also be host to a discussion of the digital currency Bitcoin on May 19.

Sadly, there are no Nic Cage live streams scheduled for the month of May, but with him, never say never. Should that change, this post will be updated. And, if you're the kind of person you wants to set a reminder for any of the events, the Livestream.com site allows you to add events to your calendar relatively easily.
