Recently at ITEXPO I explained to many at the 4GWE speaker dinner that the future of the web is livestreaming from mobile devices onto social networks. A lanyard would be developed to hold your iPhone in place as it records everything that happens and the information would get posted directly to Facebook accounts.
Dave Burstein of DSL Prime told me that carriers wouldn’t be able to keep up with the traffic from all these HD streams (he is probably right) – but as I argued with him – this won’t stop users from doing it. It’s a logical progression from sharing text to pictures to video clips to live video streams and all we needed to make this a reality is the proper way to hold our phones in place so they see the same view we do as we go through life.
I just came across the Lifelapse Experiment and it is a lanyard around a person’s neck which holds up a cellphone along with software to livestream your life. Its all very new and you can sign up for the Beta program now if you wish.
Any financial analyst focusing on the wireless market who isn’t taking into account the pent up desire for consumers to livestream is simply out of touch with the future.
