Pulver take on the ustream live show

Yesterday, Jeff and Chris had a live broadcast at Ustream. The whole thing was as 2.0 as possible – people were notified by twitter, and later by blogs, then shared photos of it.

Jeff just published an excellent post on that. The thing I found most interesting was his comparison to the early VoIP era:

“….as people started to call-in from all over the world, it hit me that we were playing with technology that was as disruptive to the future of Media as my use of Internet Phone back in April, 1995 when all I need to talk to people around the world was software, connectivity and a computer. Back then the press considered all of us “hobbyists” and the telecom operators thought we were playing with “toys” yet what we were playing with was the underlying technology that would change the face of communications forever….”

I find it hard to explain to the Average Joe what is so special in the changes the media world is facing. I am certain I will use this example in the future.

I will publish soon a post called “Media Revolution for Dummies” – stay tuned.

    Live video streaming on the internet by professional hosts “on the air” with 24 x 7 availability will be the next big break through. This is just the beginning. More to come.

    As bandwidth increases, anyone can broadcast a show, true. The big question remains how to get people to watch, on a larger scale, that can really compete with the big guys?
