Big Brother is watching via George Orwell meets Pee Wee Herman. Meet the world of Justin TV. The first 24 hour live streaming video sharing site. Whether you have a web cam on your head as you go for your morning walk, having people watch you have coffee, watching a staring dog or having a cam on a hockey game, the world of real time video is upon us.
After spending many many many minutes watching this Emo kid intently gaming on Playstation, switching to the Scuzzi channel to watch Scuzzi wag his tail and then finally ending it with Rob drinking coffee and then moving over to pick out a new section of the paper, I began to question how this site gets 31 million views daily.
Then I found it. The possibility of witnessing a live crime creates an element of anticipation. Living in a world of free uninhibited voyeurism with the chance of criminal activity is such a deviant thought but one many live vicariously through.
Can I recommend Justin TV as the future of live feed video or do I see value in a professional sense? I am going to defer responding to that for now and give myself a little more time to let this sink in.
On a direct comparison note, I do highly recommend IJustine.com.
Is there a connection other than an added letter “e”, No. But it seems to flow well with my train of thought.
Justine is witty, charming, sexy and does great impersonations of customer service specialists and police officers. She has a series of videos providing commentary in a one act, one actor setting on current trends, technology and common acts of rational insanity.
See her, believe in her and just have fun with it.
To Justin and Justine…I commend you both for showing innovation and rational thought to an completely irrational time in our lives.
