As the consumer web evolves, we're seeing a trend towards immediate sharing of everything about our lives online. The current batch of hot companies in the consumer web space of life-streaming are all about helping you share the important (and sometimes not so important) details of your life with friends and family “as and when they happen”.

The tools that let us broadcast our lives in real-time are radically changing the way we keep in touch with people we know and, for the socially bold or privacy nonchalant, get in touch with people we don’t know. Market leaders are jumping on the bandwagon. Google acquired a key player, Jaiku, few months ago. AOL added life-streaming features to AIM few weeks ago. Come and hear from leading companies in this space, and learn what these thought leaders see as the future of the consumer web.
