Lifecasting: Justin.tv Opens It’s Platform to Public
Justin.tv, the lifecasting destination where Justin Kan began streaming his entire life 24/7 from a webcam mounted to his cap has finally opened up it’s platform to the public. Last March, when Justin first began streaming his life, there were no such plans due to the high cost of necessary hardware. But, in May, the company opened it’s doors to a select group of beta broadcasters who wore the mobile broadcasting hardware.
The site did so well that it was able to ditch the proprietary hardware, and on October 2 Justin.tv became an open network, allowing members of the public to register and broadcast their lives using their own equipment.
