Im annoyed

That Yahoo! article seems to have attracted enough viewers to crash JTV once again. don't they know they cant take press? It frustrates me.

those of us who are"livecasters"* (as opposed to lifecasters in the sense that we LIVE to treat the camera stream as our primary media of expression, love cameras and streaming tech more than chocolate or even iphones, adore our viewers as viewers, participants, and real people (go team neko!),want to experiment and attempt to push the media beyond "here i am on camera, typing, napping and passive" (snore!)) are the ones that get jipped at the end of the day. and all the commenters on yahoo! have a party talking about how boring lifecasting is. But their point is well taken..it is.

I must sleep less to make it so. I am not doing enough. There is not enough time in the day for all I envision. Not enought time to work on it between the hours of 7pm and 4am.

that's it.

livecaster as defined by neko: (definition 1 subject to revisions for sure)
a person broadcasting in some form as 24/7 as possible who uses their stream (in any form) as their primary means of expression, communication and creativity. a livecaster's broadcast is not just an additional form of web presence, but instead the primary web persence which is supported by other supplimental content (written or video diaries, blogs, websites, whatever). A livecaster's goal need not be related to showing daily life or even reality, but often includes these elements to create the whole picture they are trying to portray.

My writing sucks. You need not point this out.


thats it for reals.

Just wanted to say
that i'm one of the many who caused it to crash because of the yahoo article. Your livecasting is the most entertaining. I do relate to the daily ritual cat thing as i have 7 to clean up after.. I haven't postedf on LJ in years but glad to see it's still around and hasn't gone the way of mySpace which i find thoroughly frustrating on there as uberfallz so stop by and say hello.
