Traveling with Kyte.tv

[kyte.tv 6118]

Teresa Williamson, founder of Tango Diva had breakfast with Maryam and I and I thought it would be fun to show her Kyte.tv so we did a little interview for my channel over there. At the TechCrunch party, Kyte’s CEO, Daniel was showing me a ton of new features on Kyte (you can now send audio from your cell phone) and I wanted to see what’s up. Looking good. Anyway, we spent 16 minutes talking about traveling and women traveling especially, since that’s her passion. She’ll be on the Today Show on August 11 talking about her site and her new book too. Fun times on a Sunday afternoon, hope you’re having fun.

UPDATE: Jeremiah Owyang has an interesting post on “micromedia” and if you visit my Facebook profile I answer him, and another question about how microblogging services are changing how we blog. My Kyte video also shows up on my Facebook profile page as well (as does my blog, and my Twitters, and everything else I do).

UPDATE2: now I can embed my channel here. That’s cool.

  1. ok, here the complete message for ericdotnet:
    – html always loads first, so you shouldn’t see any speed slow down in viewing all html content. The kyte loader app is less than 400bytes in size.
    – The full kyte.tv app loads afterwards and is about 450KB in size, incl. the visible content.
    – The kyte.tv is cached, meaning it only needs to load it once and afterwards grabs it from the cache. The cache works across sites.

    I hope this explains what’s going on.

  3. Another interesting observation: While Robert was waiting in line for his iPhone and reported via his kyte channel, quite some media picked up on the story and embedded his channel. Some examples:
    – San Francisco Chronicle: http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/sfgate/detail?blogid=19&entry_id=18075

    – Crunchgear: http://crunchgear.com/2007/06/28/robert-scoble-live-video-blogging-and-first-in-line-for-iphone/

    – Handelsblatt (similar to Financial Times in Germany): http://www.handelsblatt.com/news/Default.aspx?_p=300476&_t=ig&ig_xmlfile=hb_iphone_verkaufsstart.xml&ig_page=14

    The details are available via kyte trackbacks – scroll down on http://www.kyte.tv/scobleizer

    Within a couple hours Robert created his uber-network with the Scobleizer channel and had 100s of people from different destinations connected and chatting with each other.

    And as you can see, any new show on Scobleizer is broadcast to all embedded TVs – the network stays active and can grow.

  5. I clicked play but then couldn’t find the pause / stop button.
    Maybe it’s because I’m running on Ubuntu?
    Maybe I was just too stupid to find it?
    Maybe the kyte.tv programmer hasn’t coded that bit yet?

    who knows…
