ScobleCam coming?

Come back Monday to my Twitter account at 10 a.m. for something fun. I’ll be at the Web 2.0 Expo in the lobby. Where will you be?

I can’t let Justin.TV and Chris Pirillo have all the fun!

I’m taking the weekend off, hope you are having a good one and see you on Monday morning!

UPDATE: Oh, heck, beta test here. We’ll see how long Verizon Wireless is going to last. We’re driving to Merced. My phone is 425-205-1921. Call and get on ScobleShow, live walkaround edition. :-)

UPDATE2: beta test was successful. We were showing people video for more than three hours as we drove through California. See ya on Monday!

    Gosh, whata talent. Hope he comes back…West Palm nights listening to Phil on the Manalapan Beaches, just doesn’t get any better than that…

  4. Robert,

    Between breaking the DoubleClick story and explaining the Mexico one, it’ll be hard to follow it up on Monday, but I’ll tune in…

    Best,
    Chris

  5. Earlier, colin commented that this technology has been around for years. Absolutely true. Heck, webcams have been big since the mid 90s, so for over a decade. The difference is not in the technology (though that certainly helps), but in the audience itself.

    The rise of social media / user-created content means that people want to interact with their media, to be a part of the conversation. It’s the fact that the audience is finally ready that makes this the right time.

  7. P.S.

    There’s no revenue stream in this for ustream.tv.

    Video advertisers don’t want to sponsor user-generated content and google ads get ignored because there’s engaging (well perhaps) video to watch.

  9. Interesting. This technology is 7+ years old. We had people doing this (from a car) using WMV live streaming on a community site with text chat in 2000.

    We just used flash for the interface.

    We carefully controlled the bitrate to avoid chop.

    We did this with web 1.0, so this is not 2.0 or 3.0.

    So what’s different today? Robert doing the marketing via Twitter? Cheaper bandwidth?

    Less choppy video – nope.

  11. I’ve been watching the justin.tv phenom unfold for a couple weeks now, and I’m fascinated by the dynamics of the chat rooms. There are ad-hoc communities and direct peer to peer interactions that make justin.tv fun during times when he’s not doing anything (sleeping) or they are having technical glitches with their setup. I find that the chat rooms explode during these down periods.

    When I start to think about these interesting dynamics and more recently in how twitter is being used, I realize that we are on the dawn of a new interweb. you know that semantically rich one the you and Dave keep talking about. Am almost thinking of catching a flight down to SFO just to see this unfold live and in the flesh. Thanks for keeping the internet interesting!
