Did you ever read Snowcrash? Do you remember how they had people whose entire existence was documenting 360 degrees of an event? They would be automatically uploading the information to some massive archival server. If the media was used in anyway in the news that person
would be paid for his video. Well, I think we have one of the first consumer devices that will be doing just that. Enter the Looxcie. Looxcie is always on, continuously videoing – there’s no record button. When you experience something you want to share, just click the Instant Clip button to save a clip of the last thirty seconds.
