One recent Friday night I stayed up to 2 AM playing with Meerkat and Periscope. I then proceeded to play with these social networks throughout the weekend broadcasting my morning breakfast, my run, my hike, my girlfriend singing, my son playing golf (much to his chagrin) and my Saturday night dinner party. I was amazed that nearly 100 people would tune into some of my broadcasts. I played with titles such as Best California Surf Spot (15 viewers) to Girls on the Beach (78 viewers). I’m completely fascinated that anyone with an iPhone can now broadcast their own TV channel to the world in an instant and people can “Like” and “Comment” on these videos in real time from virtually anywhere.
