And you thought watching people play video games was nerdy. 😄 But seriously, this is an interesting trends and makes me wonder how other activities (cooking, working out, gardening, etc.) might translate to this livestreaming format.

@rrhoover Google helpout was trying to tackle this livestreaming for everything approach in a tutorial-ly way. It really is an interesting trend. Watching people draw, chat, etc. Maybe go down the categories of content from's early days, there could be a hint for the next big thing after game streaming like twitch :)

@rrhoover an interesting trend / breed of startups - let's call it 'Voyeurism for X' category :P

@rrhoover @pkwire I'd say Twitch for X

@rrhoover I've been tracking this trend actually... Lots of videos on YT of people doing normal everyday tasks (cleaning, organizing, etc.). Something oddly meditative about it.

I am probably going to actually use this a lot. I find there's no better way to pick up new things than from pair coding.
Dimitar Bonev@dbonev · Founder @getqlibri
@itamarok true.

I've been thinking about exactly this for the past couple months (if and when twitch coding would catch on). The main thing that worries me is the entertainment factor. Twitch gaming has worked thus far because regardless of educational value its still fun to watch.

I love that idea. We could also think of a kind of Uber for pair programming thing... Find a fellow programmer anytime anywhere :-) stop coding alone.
