The social video thingy is bad enough, now it has to be live streaming? Can any good come of this?
Ustream.tv is LIVE INTERACTIVE VIDEO FOR EVERYONE. Ustream.tv quickly and easily allows anyone with a camera to broadcast to the world.
I only have a couple things to say about this. First, I don’t think that the majority of the population should be streaming video, for reasons that are quite apparent. Most streams end up a snorefest or stupid-palooza. Second, this could be quite useful with some technological improvements, which inherently means that it will end up serving those with nefarious motives. People will need to learn to set up decent lighting and sound before this will become a popular thing to do. With video, you can edit and/or re shoot if it didn’t turn out. But you’ll not get that margin with live streaming.
