Tell your story to News Cut

Posted at 7:53 AM on January 28, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

What's your story? Bob Collins is curious. He writes,

"So consider this your invitation to think about those people you know and those stories you know -- the ones where you say to yourself, 'you know, this (person/problem/success story) deserves some attention.'"

Since you probably do know someone interesting, this is a good opportunity for you to introduce that cool person who does "interesting things as a matter of everyday life" to Collins and the world of News Cut.

Would you live your life online?

Have we come a long way since JenniCam? Weekend America had a story that still has me wondering who would consider "lifecasting" 24-7.

From Signing Up to be Watched:

Jody Gnant has been streaming her life on the Internet 24 hours a day, seven days a week for the last six months.

Join the online discussion: Would you sign up to be watched online? What if your friend or family member had a lifecast? Don't we all sort of lifecast just by publishing our stories and pictures to the Internet?
