Now you thought YouTube is already a bad site for yoyeuristic nerds. But then I stumbled upon Stickam. This is absolutely crazy. Itâ€™s almost like YouTube, but there is one major difference: itâ€™s LIVE!
Live video can feel very strange, I just noticed. The only times I have experienced live video streaming were during skype calls with my brothers in Hamburg or my Cousin in Arizona.
But this is different. You click on one of the links and all of a sudden you end up in the living room of a stranger. So while checking out the live feeds, I actually sneaked into one person from Denmark who started – quite openly – to smoke a selfmade hashpipe or something that looked like it. Made out of a plastic soda bottle. There was the option to chat, but quite frankly, I didnâ€™t want to disturb the guy.
The next live stream I visited was the DJ performance of a breakbeat DJ. In the videostream it seemed that there are two people DJ-ing.
But neither of them bothered to answer my question if there is any OK, one just answered. A little later, and he admitted that he is quite drunk. (And I just got reminded of the fact that chat syntax is revolutionary: â€œlol kwl im goin now sum1 else will tlk soon ok c u l8r m8â€œ).
The most surprising live-surprise: the DJ actually greeted me via the stream! (â€wanno make a loif shouuwt ouuwt to roouwlaanâ€)
Very kwl, m8.
