Christina Tries Airtime  

Christina and Sean Airtiming

And this is what happens.

I have to say, going into Airtime, I wasn’t that keen on the service. It’s Chatroulette, what’s the big deal.

So I fire up the service today and login and I see this familiar looking guy staring back. I don’t want to be presumptuous and ask the guy if he’s Sean Parker – after all, he look like that everyguy you see all over this city – but my thoughts are confirmed a few minutes later when he adds me as his friend, I confirm and find out that yes, I’m sharing videos with one of the founders of the service.

Mind. Blown.

Using the video sharing feature, I shared a clip from The Social Network featuring the faux-Sean Parker, AKA Justin Timberlake. Sean was a good sport about it – even though I’m sure he hates it when people bring the movie up to him.

All in all, not a bad way to start the afternoon.

Incidentally – I see real viral potential with Airtime that I wasn’t expecting to see. Especially with the people already on your friends or Facebook friends list. This is disruptive – and I have to admit, I wasn’t expecting that.

I also wasn’t expecting it to be fun – but Valley-celebrities aside, it actually was.

I’m not sure if this has the longterm potential to stay popular – or if it will fizzle out and be this summer’s TurnTable.fm. Still, I’m looking forward to using it again.
