Penny Arcade, the epic top dog of all internet comics, has started using Ustream! In an amazing example of creativity the creators of Penny Arcade have been drawing the comics live!
It takes a creative forward thinker to fully take advantage of live video. Unlike television shows, or even live television, Ustream allows you to interact with your viewers. Now with television in mind you wouldn’t know what to do with this – you’d sit there doing your show but fail to acknowledge your viewers. Penny Arcade isn’t even thinking of TV. They’re thinking internets and only internets. The show is awesome.
Not only do they draw the new comics in front of a thousand fans – they talk to the chat by scribbling words across the comic! “getting a cookie BRB” or “hi user3434” isn’t a rare sight on the Penny Arcade live stream.
Its so exciting to see the many ways people think up to use Ustream. Classrooms, eclipses, speeches, tech shows, voice lessons, and now comics drawn in front of yours eyes. I wonder what will be on tomorrow…
