Joi Ito's Web

Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.


Luna and Eamon play with Pete over iChatAV with my new iSight.

I got my iSight today and downloaded QuickTime Broadcaster. I've set up streaming from my streaming server. I guess this is sort of a JoiItoTV. ;-P

Pretty boring, but if you want to see a full motion video stream of me sitting on the phone, sitting in meetings or working on my computer, check it out.

Now I've got to figure out something useful to do with this. The cool thing is that I should be able to carry this contraption around wirelessly. "Now, for our on-the-spot broadcast..."

Click more to see the stream. (If I'm broadcasting.)







If there is video here, it is live.


David Beckemeyer built a hecklebot! It's called UcHeckle.

I've been thinking about how I am going to use TypePad. Boris mentioned the permalink issue of switching, but I think we could probably solve that. However, I am leaning toward keeping my main blog on Movable Type so I can hack it directly and run bots and stuff. I think this site just needs a serious overhaul. There are a lot of cool features on TypePad that deal with non-text content and metadata so I'm thinking of moving my audblog, moblog, photos and my "reviews" over to my TypePad site. Anyway, I'll be messing around for awhile.

I am going to stop cross posting between this blog and TypePad because it is confusing. I was with Mena last week and she helped me answer "gee, I wonder what my site would look like on TypePad?" I couldn't resist the opportunity to have template-master-Mena design my site. ;-)

Anyway, feedback is appreciated as I try to figure out how to make all this work together. Also, please remember that TypePad is still in beta. Lots of features and documentation still to come so please be patient.

Howard Dean is going to guest blog for Lawrence Lessig while he is away on vacation. It is VERY cool that a presidential candidate is blogging. It's also cool that Six Apart can now say that a presidential candidate uses Movable Type. And how cool is it to be able to say, "Howard Dean's taking care of my blog while I'm away." Nice one Larry!

Let's all welcome Howard Dean to the blog world!
