A ways back I was part of a Twitter chat about an event called BlogJam. If you didn’t come check out the event, here’s a bit of a review that I wrote. The event was designed to bring together bloggers of every sort and share our combined knowledge to create an army of talented and knowledgeable bloggers. I was OVER the moon excited. But during the chat, a few people brought up something that I had NO interest in talking about, learning about, or being involved in; Periscope. For those of you that live in a bubble and don’t know what Periscope is, it’s a free app that connects with Twitter and allows you to stream live video. Now, conceptually, I was very excited about Periscope (see also Meerkat) but what I had seen, in general, was incredibly poor execution. For me, the idea of live video was very interesting due to the fact that you could share such a wide array of ideas in new and interesting ways. But most people used it for the silliest things that I’d seen. I actually (briefly) watched one “scope” that was someone running…in the dark… But I listened closely to what some of the users had to say. And now I’m addicted.
