What Technology has brought us!

Last night, I was watching random home made Youtube videos, as usual, and I heard something about "BlogTV"... so i asked our friend, Mr.Google, not knowing what to expect, and clicked the link that came up..

... and VoilĂ ..!
 a window into a very different worldd..

.. a world where any random person anywhere on this globe broadcasts a live video of themselves and there's a chat box on the side where people could comment, ask questions, and acutally have a proper discussion with the person in the video!!

By stumbling upon this site, lemme tell you, i could not believe the extent of what technology has brought us!
It's amazing how you type something and immediately you get a response from the person in the video stream (or whatever its supposed to be called..)
So, to cut the description short, it's like Live YouTubing, where the live video broadcaster can have conversations with the commenters.

There is definitely room for people to abuse this form of random stranger communication, especially with all those cyber weirdos out there :/

The broadcasted stuff I've seen so far included people playing guitar, singing, (some very talented, and others so so) comedy stuff, diy craft making, and even just sitting there staring at the cam doing nothing or responding to random topics with the "typers" on the chat.


One broadcaster that really caught my interest was this talented artist that was broadcasting himself as part of a project he called "My Space".

He was actually living for a whole week in a cardboard box in an art gallery in Miami, where visitors could peek through peepholes to see him. His forms of communication included internet connection and a mobile phone. 

It was interesting to chat with him through his video broadcast, because he explained how his project experiments with human interaction and how much it has changed with technology. 
I asked about how he gets his food, and believe it or not it's the random people visiting him that offer him food, and sometimes in exchange for some of his art work that he has displayed in his 'box'. .. aint that interesting?

yeah so i think BlogTV its an interesting place to visit once in a while, see what's out there.
I DO advise to beware of the weirdos, and i defiantly do not recommend this site for young internet surfers, due to some unnecessary hater and uncensored comments that may be found :p

enjoy y'all!


~Fact of the day:
Starting uni again made me realize I NEED to be a super extra diligent student this year.. looks like my life will depend on it.
