I am at the game room at Kinnernet and I am testing BlogTV as demoed by Nir Ofir. BlogTV is the fourth most popular web site in Israel, the secret over Youtube is that it is live. People make live shows with their webcams and mobile phones. They also have a good revenue model cause they share revenues on video calls from mobiles. In most countries video calls have been a big failure cause they are very expensive. With Fon and a Nokia N80 or other models you can do the same thing with WiFi and broadcast yourself for free. I have been blogging for a while about the potential of a Youtube Live type platform but in Israel this is a reality. My live transmission was done in their new Canadian site cause their Israeli site is in Hebrew.

Very good idea, but one question, how do you get the N80 or other video mobiles (I have an N93) to broadcast video over WiFi? Some have the option to upload to Flickr, but I’ve not seen a tool for live video streaming.
