The Internet is changing every facet of the music business — including live performance.
There's never been a better time to take to the cyber-stage.
You can give a cyber performance from anywhere, including from the comfort of home, so there are almost no overheads: no travel costs, no print advertising expenses, and none of the hardships of touring, such as sleeping on couches or in rat-infested youth hostels for four hours before it's time to set off to the next place.
For decades, live performance has been a key way for musicians to attract new and enthusiastic listeners.
This week, FBI Director James Comey reaffirmed a position he’s expressed in the past, claiming that he covers his computer’s camera with tape.
“I think people ought to take responsibility for their own safety and security,” Comey proposed at a Center for Strategic and International Studies conference, according to the Comey’s not alone in that commitment: Mark Zuckerberg supposedly obscures his laptop’s camera as well, and as Will Oremus points out, he’s right to do so.
Channels used to initiate cybersex are not necessarily exclusively devoted to that subject, and participants in any Internet chat may suddenly receive a message with any possible variation of the text "Wanna cyber? " or a request for "C2C"/"C4C" ("cam to cam" and "cam for cam", respectively).
As we're all no doubt aware, the face of the music industry is changing.
In a world where close contact between people on different continents is no strange thing, the way bands and musicians connect with their listeners is undergoing its own metamorphosis — and the ways in which musicians perform are changing too.
A Cyber-shot web is usually connected as a webcam with a video-in jack, available as an accessory for Cyber-shot cameras.
The camera must be set to normal camera mode and will work with any program requiring a webcam without additional software, drivers or settings changes.
