Do you remember the movies EDtv and the Truman Show? Justin.tv launched just seven days ago to mimic these past reality-based movies by broadcasting Justin Kan on the web 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Justin Kan is formerly of the Ajax calendar startup, Kiko, which was funded by Y Combinator before it was eventually sold on eBay for $258,100. Justin.tv is also an Y Combinator backed venture with the long term goal:
"...to create an affordable live mobile video platform they can use to recruit other live bloggers."
The site streams Justin live, offers live chat and features some of its most popular archived content. It is no surprise, Justin.tv has been creating quite the buzz thus far as it taps into the masses general love for people watching. Unfortunately, it hasn't been all fun and games for Justin and his crew as their North Beach apartment has been subject of number of pranks.
