Live, From Anywhere, It’s the Internet

Wow, this is my second post today about Livecasting.  Mashable has a look at extreme sports site GO211 and their live-streaming embeddable player that is currently showing live coverage of a snowboarding event in Nippon.

Although the player is nothing to write home about in terms of resolution it is watchable and, considering the fact that it’s coming out of Japan and I am watching it at my desk in NYC with no special effort, I’m impressed.

Live coverage of sports and news is something that TV still does a lot better than the net but this is definitely a big sign of things to come and should be giving ABC’s Wide World of Sports a big wake up call.
