Hey Boomer, ask your child/ren.

It's a live-streaming platform.

A platform that allows wannabe gamers to watch other people playing computer games. Yes, really. The mind boggles, I know.

I'm working from home, have not noticed any problem.

Went to the authoritative source for all laughs about IT and it's not even the top headline: https://www.theregister.com/2021/06/...kes_down_half/

Not just computer games - live DJ sets, musicians/bands playing and other live streams.

And some sexy girls (and more recently also boys) “just chatting” in small bikinis. So, it develops quite quickly.

<<In a statement, it said: "We identified a service configuration that triggered disruption across our POPs (points of presence) globally and have disabled that configuration.>>
Why did that remind me of the gondola accident the other week?

Obviously I’m watching

And seriously I’m interested in how people make money on streaming nowadays.

You mean when watching blah people sleep is out of fashion?

I think it will move on to watch them brush their teeth. Put on hair gel, zip their jacket.

Everything that has any whiff of reality. People are tired of fake internet stuff and filters.

Twitch is a real trend-setter. It's worth keepin an eye on.
