Live streaming isn't anything new to the web. But Periscope's pushed live video to the forefront of attention, and it doesn't looks like it's stopping anytime soon.
I've been going strong with Periscope for the last couple of months, using it to give people a live-look as my wife and I travel the world. Sometimes the views are amazing. Sometime kinda mundane. But that's how life works. I try and only turn on the camera during the amazing times. :)
Yes, you can watch on your computer (or even your new Apple TV). But the best and most interactive experience comes when you have the iOS or Android app installed on your phone. If you've only every watched on your computer, you're missing out.
The Periscope account I use the most is linked below. Click it, download the app, and then give us a follow. And go explore the rest of the Periscope world. Fair warning: Sturgeon's Law applies, and there are trolls on Periscope as there are anywhere. But, like Google+, if you stick to the niche you're interested in (say, world-travelers, for instance) you're sure to have a better time.
And if you scope interesting things, I'd love to take a look! Leave your Periscope user name here and I'll give you a follow. Cheers from the road!
