Watching Everything Live

Dave Winer writes on Scripting News, Watching more, revealing less?:
"One thing's for sure, with Twitter and then and now Ustream, our little corner of the web is becoming a lot faster and more intimate. People used to be shocked at how much I shared here on Scripting, now I look conservative...

Ustream is certainly the answer to how we'll webcast my session at Mix 07 on April 30, and all future conferences. Check one off the to-do list."
Jeff Jarvis' son Jake is now broadcasting live from his high school. He's a freshman. I'm in class right now with him listening to the teacher give an assignment to write a letter to yourself that he'll return Senior Year. is an experiment by Jake Jarvis. Using Sprint PCS EVDO and, is an attempt to broadcast from they eyes of a backpack strap 24/7. Jake is a freshman in high school, which means the camera will (hopefully) be on and lively from 7:30 AM to 3:00 PM EDT.
Chris Pirillo is broadcasting live right now from Seattle. His office is dark and nothing is happening, but 325 people are watching.

I look forward to trying this out soon. I've already broadcat live from a cell phone, why not try it from a laptop computer too?
