"Always start a story at the most exciting point," was the advice of my writing instructor, Brenda Ueland. So I'm beginning this book with three very exciting things I have done with live video recently that I think are going to change your world.
No one is quite sure what "Web 2.0" means. It's a catch-all phrase that has a lot to do with personal interaction, personalization and feedback. It was credited to one of the patriarchs of the digerati, Tim O'Reilly in 2003. Many pundits have taken a stab at a definition of "Web3.0." For me, it means:
Your Life, Online, Real-Time
Every moment of every day accessible from everywhere.
Think about it. You are already being observed and recorded everywhere you go. In my home town, traffic lights will send tickets toyour home with links to video of your vehicle blowing through a stoplight. Your bank, gas station, post office, grocery store, corner quickiemart all have you on video. Online mapping programs share satellite images of your house with all seekers. Your cell phone -- which also records video now -- tracks your location at all times. Hook all those feeds to the Internet, and what do you get?
