Prepare for the cyborg bloggers
Justin Kan launches a first-person streaming video site, Justin.TV.
At the Stirr event last night, I met Justin Kan, who was walking around the event with a camera strapped to his head. Kan is making himself into a cyborg for his new streaming service, Justin.TV, on which he will make available a real-time, Justin's-eye view of the world. In his backback is a laptop with an EV-DO card. A future setup, he says, will have four EV-DO cards that he'll link together in order to deliver live high-definition video over the Net.
But that's just the technology. Will people pay attention? I asked Kan, "What makes your life so interesting that people will want to watch?"
"I'm going to go to a lot of cool parties and talk to interesting people," he said.
Before my inner editor could intervene, my inner narcissist took control. "Are you recording me?"
Kan smiled, but didn't answer.
Look for the launch soon.
