Periscope- Good thing or Bad thing?

I only recently came across periscope , so far I've seen doctors give out medical advice, people walk their dogs, women trying to save hookers from pimps, a woman masturbating and a cat sunbathing.

I also came across people using periscope whilst driving? Isn't this very dangerous?

Theres a big chance people will see an accident live or maybe even someone commit a dangerous crime like murder?

Its pushing the boundaries but I'm not sure about its longevity with all the potential negatives

Like everything in the hands of people: there are good things, bad things, and things you didn't wish you knew existed.

Re: Periscope- Good thing or Bad thing?

I read an excellent book by Dave Eggers "The Circle" and it was effectively about a technology conglomerate becoming too powerful (like a google or apple) and controlling everything. One of the parts of the book deals with the company "The Circle" setting up these tiny cameras everywhere around the world so people all over could watch things live. This book was right before Periscope was created so it kinda foretold of Periscope. In the book everyone loves the all access cameras but eventually there are cracks in the system and a few people see the dangers of it. This one guy does not want his entire life broadcast as apparently everyone else in the world does. Eventually he is pursued relentlessly by people from the circle, demanding that he give in and broadcast himself like everyone else. The cameras pick up him driving off a cliff in his car as he runs away, broadcasting his suicide worldwide. It was a book about the dangers of this stuff. It could be us in 10 years or even less.

Its a tool for stalking your pray while being submerged.
Good example of great use is. Stalking on girls mini skirts from near by bog. Lower angle provides excellent view.

an app that connects to twitter. Allows you to broadcast anything at any time. It's like live youtube. You could film yourself talking or whatever.

I used it to broadcast college tennis matches for viewers in Waco for the NCAA tournament. I think usage like that is very good. But some of it is very silly

Re: Periscope- Good thing or Bad thing?

It's a good idea.

It's not for everyone, but for the ones that are extroverts enough it's a good idea to express themselves 'live' or just share random/important/urgent stuff.

Kinda like Person of Interest, in which there is a powerful machine that can see from every audio/video recording machine in the World and there are two good guys who use it to protect the World from bad people, and there are some bad people that wants to use it to do bad things.

I wouldn't be surprised if in the future someone could create a machine/virus so powerful that it could infect all the machines in the World and do..everything it wants.
I mean, governments and big dogs (Google, Facebook, Twitter etc) already do something similar from their services/products.

I think it's a good thing as it allows the people in submarines to see what's going on.

Also sorry to hear that, can you tell us what happened?(you don't have to)

Ive used it a few times, it can be very educational and interesting but like all new technology has a dark side that bad people can take advantage of..
