VNCCasts allows you to watch clips of people using their computer…not watch the people, but watch their screen…eg. watch the computer screen of someone playing chess…watch someone searching for a topic on a search engine…watch someone play a game.
Instead of screencasting, people are watching you in real-time, and it’s recorded for you to watch later.
This could almost become the reality TV version of people using their computer…you could have a VNC guide to see what’s coming up, just like a TV guide…each week someone could do a show on searching the net, etc…
They do have a section called New VNCCasts, Future VNCCasts…imagine if you had a regular VNC show, if you miss it live, you could get the feed for it (kind of like a feed for live screencasts).
They also have a tab for LIVE VNCCasts, Past VNCCasts, MY VNCCasts, and MY VNCCast Subscriptions.
So you can watch then live, check out the new one’s (no RSS feed at the moment), Check out future and past ones, create and store them, and subscribe to them (not implemented yet).
This is going to go along way
…so it’s similar to screencasting, but only live.
[ADDED: also live chatting]
From the website:
“VNCCasts is a place where you can watch live VNC broadcasts of people’s computer screens as they work. You can also chat with them and other viewers. These live interactive broadcasts of your computer usage can be used to give demos/tutorials, receive tips in real-time as you work, and even find a job by impressing potential employers with your daily work.”
