I was first interested in Airtime before they even announced what it did strictly on the founders. Sean Parker (played by Justin Timerlake in the movie The Social Network) and Shawn Fanning, both of Napster fame, launched the new video service among a handful of celebrities in NYC. They even got Jimmy Fallon to host the event.
Airtime is basically a Chatroulette without the nudity thanks to the help of Facebook Connect. The duo assume that tying people to their (most of the time) real Facebook accounts will reduce the amount of flesh seen by its predecessor.
The live video service allows you to talk to friends, or try the anonymous option which pairs you up with others that share the same interest based on your Facebook account.
Even Mark Zuckerberg got in on the action on launch day.
Overall I am quite interested in anything Parker is working on because he looks at the world a bit differently than everyone else. While we see just another live video service, I am sure he is coming at this from a different angle. I am not particularly interested in the service, but it will be interested to see how it is adopted and where it ends up.
