“Lifecasting” is a hot trend, and a symbol of humanity’s growing infatuation with social networking, video, reality TV, and watching other people’s lives. The irony is, of course, that all being “social” online is a contraction.
JustinTV, founded in San Fransisco, CA, with a Linux box and a mobile streaming camera, is constantly growing and evolving. It was originally one channel- the life of Justin Kan walking around 24/7. Now it has many lifecasting channels, not to mention unauthorized live streaming of sporting events, satellite channels, TV shows, movies, etc. With live chat, you can read and post comments while watching whatever stream is on.
You can also watch other people play video games online. 2,385 people are currently watching birds eat in a cage. I KNEW I should have brought the cameras to see Pan’s World.
And, of course, it is the place to chat with live underage teens for free.
It’s Youtube, MySpace, craigslist, reality TV, reruns, and The Truman Show all rolled up into one. And it’s FREE!
The rules: no nudity (not enforced). Copyright? Copy wha-?
By the way, it’s NOT cool to mention the JustinTV suicide while chatting there. That kid cried wolf so many times, it’s not even funny. No trolling! LOL Well, gotta run. I gotta watch people sleep on JustinTV. If I get bored, I can always change the channel and watch Star Trek channel, which plays every episode from every series. That’s over 400 hours of enjoyment right there. I can also check out the boxing or wrestling channels. But there are no commercials or pause button, so you have to urinate in a glass.
JustinTV: keeping people at home one day at a time.
Welcome to the Matrix, I hope you enjoy your stay.
