Live Video Streaming Coming At Us Fast!

Wow, where did this come from? Over the past 24 hours I’ve watched live video streaming become the next hot topic on the web.

First, inspired by Justin.tv, Chris “I live on the lunatic fringe” Pirillo decided to start a live internet video stream of him at his computer. Bringing in Ustream.tv (the live video technology) Skype, Twitter, chat rooms and a whole host of other technology.

Then Robert “PodTech” Scoble decided to live stream his road trip, thanks to a wireless laptop and a video camera.

Up next, both Scoble and Jeremiah “Web Prophet” Owyang announce they plan to stream live video from the Web 2.0 conference.

This is cutting edge stuff. Question is, how can it be leveraged?

    I agree. I predicted on my blog that within the next two weeks, we’ll likely see hundreds of video blogs utilizing this technology for their own content. It’s pretty fascinating and in a way it’s more of a reality show than actual reality shows, because what you’re seeing is spur of the moment reactions instead of stuff that’s been edited and cut up to present a certain viewpoint.
