onoes! teenz on teh pr0n webs!
It's been a year since I posted about Stickam
, and in that time, one would be naïve to think that a community of unmoderated videos broadcast live from the private and semi-anonymous bedrooms of the world would not result in epic lulz
(nsfw). To no one's surprise, disgruntled Stickam ex-VP Alex Becker says Stickam shares office space, staff, and equipment with live pornographic video providers
-- this via NYT tech writer Brad Stone
. Cue the "think of the CHILDRUNZ!"
. But popular websites being related to or backed up by prurient interest are nothing new: Wikipeda predecessor Bomis
was once accused of having "softore porn" in its "Babes" section
, and of course everyone knows porn drives technology
. What do you think the internet is for
? But if you use Stickam and this bothers you, the burgeoning field of live embeddable Flash-based webcam video streaming is rife with alternatives: uStream.tv
, and Operator11
, just to name some -- but there'll be naked girls on those too. I guarantee it.
