Although morbid in content, a new type of web casting is making the mainstream. Companies like Funeral-Cast are enabling mourning and funeral services to be broadcasted over the Internet. Call it insensitive, however, it is just a way society is learning to cope with the conveniences the internet brings to the user.
Live webcasting "will continue to gain traction the more people get used to it," said analyst Steve Vonder Haar of Interactive Media Strategies. "Five years from now, it'll become technology's biggest overnight sensation, a decade in the making."
Implications - The Internet has allowed far-flung family members to stay connected cheaply; this phenomenon has even translated into end-of-life celebrations broadcast on the Internet.
