“Stickam is…pretty incredible,” Jeff Pulver says (Jeff runs VideoOnTheNet, a conference coming up this spring that I’ll be speaking at).
I’ve played a few times over the past week with Stickam. It’s a site where you can turn on your Web cam and other people can watch you — along with others — while you do whatever you do in front of the computer. It’s incredible cause you can see multiple people at one time.
Right now mostly teenagers are using it, which creates all sorts of new ways for predators to try to angle their way into kids’ lives (funny enough, women on the site are already pretty adept at dealing with that — I saw one entry that said “I won’t show you my tits, don’t even ask.”)
So, something your kids might already be doing. Will it have a business impact? I think so. I’m meeting more and more companies that have people working out of their homes. This way you can feel like you’re working with other people and see visually when they are available to talk.
What do you think?
