An interesting article here in The Age. A Korean bloke in San Francisco has strapped a webcam to his head, and is streaming it live to the whole world. Now, if you didn’t see this coming a mile off then you’re obviously ‘not all that switched on’ to the interweb.

 

Verdict of Justin’s life so far? Actually kind of boring.

 

But, as an indication of how hip and onto it I am (not), I used this idea for the premise of the characters ‘the Jacobite’ and ‘Thievery’ in The Fault. I called it ‘bathing’, the idea being that you submerge yourself in the consciousness and experiences of another person.

 

A thought occured to me today. What if you’re bathing and something really bad happens? Something violent? Do you try to stop what’s happening? Or do you sit and watch?
