We Live In Public

What internet of the '90s can teach us today.

This documentary, We Live In Public, by Ondi Timnoner, hasn’t gotten enough attention for how important the subject matter is to today’s digital landscape. First of all, the stuff Jeff Harris, founder of Pseudo.com – a live video webcasting site that went bust in 2000, was doing with “user generated content” and live streaming in the ’90s is bananas. But it also raises some important questions about social media, digital privacy and technology’s effect on human behaviour that are only getting more complicated with time.

This week’s Frandoms are by Sebastian Lyman, copywriter, Cossette.
