Last night I jumped onto a new platform called Spreecast that allows you to live broadcast, invite, record, archive and edit video shows. Not unlike many other players in that field, Ustream, Vokle among others. Reviewing the technology we can leave to Scoble, I am more interested in how tools like these can fit into our daily lives. The technology certainly is there to enable anyone with a webcam and a decent internet connection to have a talk show and interactive broadcast with their viewers. And believe me, as someone who hangs out in front of a camera all the time, doing video LIVE is fantastic. Totally addicting.

But one of the reasons why I believe the idea is not a homerun yet, is that the web is all about instant and on-demand access. Live broadcasting is great, but what if you miss it. Miss the beginning, can’t make it because of a prior commitment etc. Sure, it’s recorded, archived, but how much value has a spontaneous non-edited conversation days later? More thoughts to follow…
