I would like a search engine called Google "Be" Cam, where
you can search for someone to "be" by seeing what they see
and hearing what they hear. The interface would let you
search with keywords and then show you a 10 x 10 matrix of
live video feeds from the people's webcam sites that
the keywords. Then you could click on the one you wanted
see and blow it up and experience it in sense-around or
whatever. Of course this would require that a lot of people
who belonged to the network wear their web cams around
their foreheads. But wouldn't you sacrifice that in order to
able to access this kind of a network at any time? People
were doing exiting shit all the time would become famous
because people could experience their exciting shit
vicariously. "In the future everyone will be famous for 15
minutes"-- Andy Warhol. "In the future everyone will be
famous every 15 minutes" -- JesusHChrist.
||I would love to watch people do stupid/
perverse shit at the click of a mouse,
however I'm not sure I would care to
wear a cam myself. Fuck the people's
entertainment, my friend.
||Malkovich?.... Malkovich Malkovich!......... MALKOVICH. Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich.
||Assuming this will work...wow this is clever...we'll have a sort of mirror-loop type thing here. Person #1 looks through the eyes of Person #2, who is by chance, looking back through Person #1's eyes. The question is, what will they see?
||[Akabaka], they will see "exciting shit", of course.
||What about the people that the wearer walks by that does not want to be filmed ?
