    I just can't stop watching!
    I mean, he's in bed, reading a magazine, and I keep watching.
    A dude I don't know reading a magazine.
    May as well be watching paint dry!

    Is anyone else embarrassingly addicted to justin.tv?
    Why is it so interesting?

    yes it is bad that you are obessed with this. I didn't even know what it is, but unless it turns into a porno or he kills someone, it wont be worth watching. And he is going to wear it till he dies? Better be a damn good death.

    Judging by what's on there at the minute, either he's got the longest arms in the world or he's taken the camera off and put it at the foot of his bed, which kind of defeats the point. Semi-amusingly the chat thing below his cam view appears to be full of 12-year-old "1337 hax0rz", who are currently challenging each other to fights in a manly "I'm half a continent away from you" manner.

    I'd rather watch paint dry.

    For the benefit of those who don't know what Justin.tv is, think "one person, camera always on, voluntary Truman Show-esque idea" and you'll be almost there.

    He's getting lots more coverage these days because Scoble keeps talking about him.

    but.. but.. It's like I'm living in SF by proxy!


    It's really evident that I'm writing (or avoiding the writing of) papers, innit?

    Why is justin.tv such a big deal? I remember when JenniCam came out in 1996. How is this different?

    After watching a whole thirty seconds of this, I've concluded that Justin (if that's his real name) is either a filthy liar (not wearing the camera) or serious creep (sitting motionlessly for hours filming other people reading in bed). Either way, he's a bad, bad man and you're just as bad for watching him (I, as the judge of who is and isn't bad here, am exempt).

    When he's not asleep it's from a first person POV and he can leave the house.
