joeTV — almost there


Longtime readers will recall that for years I've contended that bookofjoe — the blog — is merely a placeholder for something I dubbed joeTV.

Well, according to Roy Furchgott's "App of the Week" feature in the September 30, 2009 New York Times, if I had a device running Android I could "... broadcast live video and audio from [my] phone to a Web site [Ustream] where friends (and strangers) can view it. (A similar app exists for N-series Nokia phones and the iPhone, though the iPhone version doesn’t support live broadcasting, just saved Web videos.)"

Therein lies the rub for me: I'm just not gonna use a platform not created by Apple.

It's a TechnoDolt™ thing.

But I have to believe that Apple's gonna get with it sooner rather than later and take over this nascent space, at which time you'll be the first to know that joeTV is on the air.

Real soon now.

Once upon a time, waaay back in 2005 it was, even before I added an "a" to my monicker, I responded to one of your early mentions of the possibility of "joeTV" with a comment -- I looked that sucker up, so I can quote from it -- wondering if it was going to include "poetry readings, or gadget demos, or generalized tomfoolery or what?" And now it occurs to me to ask if we'd mostly watch you watching football... Which would be okay if there's some colorful commentary or something...
