There are only a handful of Web-based services that I believe really carry the potential to enhance the interactivity of your site, and improve what and how we communicate.
Mogulus is one such solution and it's creating some interesting buzz on the Web. If you think that creating your own "TV" channel for Web users and integrating a live video stream would be beneficial, setting up an Mogulus account and getting started is a snap and could be worthy of your time and attention.
Registration is simple but actually establishing the channel you will broadcast from (especially if you're going to make it "just right") takes a little effort. Give yourself an hour or so to launch a new channel (setting up overlays, tickers, branding, etc.). Mogulus does make searching for videos to include in your broadcast simple by allowing users to search for existing YouTube videos or upload videos directly. The beauty of Mogulus as I see it is that you can take all the videos you have aggregated and mix them into an entirely new broadcast by cueing different clips. Users can even choose between streaming the content live or putting it on auto-pilot and repeating it for others to see.
I've set up a live stream courtesy of Mogulus so readers can see firsthand how it's looking and working. Check it out here - yes, that's really me hard at work!
