Make your own TV Show

50 years ago, creating your own TV show required an expensive license from a government agency, loads of expensive equipment and a frequency to transmit. I ran across UStream today.

In the first days of the internet, tools like CuSeeme permitted video casting and transmission: however bandwidth was not cheap, and the audience was small.

Today, the bandwidth required to run a video service is relatively large. I calculate that I've generated 4.5 petabytes of traffic with the 5 hours the "The Geek Stories" - alone.

With UStream, you can be your own TV station. Now the alpha-geeks are there, and even my videos seem over-produced.  Is UStream the next Soon to be overloaded with the alpha-geek herd? Hope so.
