Jarvis does MSNBC…from his Blogcam

Jeff Jarvis was interviewed on MSNBC’s Connected yesterday. But that’s not the interesting part – Jeff makes the media rounds all the time.

What’s interesting is that he did it from BuzzMachine World Headquarters (his home office) via his Blogcam:

Who needs a multimillion-dollar studio? What you see above is the blogcast studio: A Logitech laptop camera atop my screen; the screen atop a box to get it to eye-level; notes for the spiels taped to the screen; MSM Messenger to show the video; a phone to get the audio back; a very long ethernet cable to get to the router so we didn’t rely on wireless; lots of lamps … et voila: TV.

What’s neat about this is that anybody can broadcast from anywhere. Sure, the quality of the image is still iffy (but it’s better than an Ollie North satphone call). But the possibilities are endless.
