Sean Parker's new AirTime: Eliminating Loneliness via Online Video Sharing

Great article in Forbes: Sean Parker: Agent Of Disruption:
Parker is also putting money and effort into Airtime, reuniting him with his old Napster partner, Fanning. Parker has been coy about the platform’s specifics but says it will offer communication and sharing in real time—something he thinks is underserved on the Web. Airtime will likely be a site where friends can post videos and react to them—and each other—live. “My pitch is eliminating loneliness,” Parker says. There’s also a random video chat function similar to last year’s voyeuristic flameout, the now defunct Chatroulette. It hits the same thread that has run through all of Parker’s projects: sharing and discovery.
I'll be interested in testing out Airtime.
