Interacting with the World, In Real-Time

I am doing a rather amazing, yet common thing right now:

  • I am peaking into Robert Scoble’s life, via his live video stream. He is at a wine tasting with a few internet notables.
  • I can interact with Robert, someone I don’t know, via Twitter. I can ask questions of him, or anyone else there, as it happens.

How long will it be before this is common in the news industry. Where viewers can experience the world, live, and interact with it as it happens.
