New Travelstreaming Site Offers Great Niche Based Form of Lifestreaming

Alan Cheslow's Travelstreaming Site

Alan Cheslow notified me last night of a new site project he is working on that he’s deemed a Travelstream. He really piqued my interest and I made my way over to the site right away. He’s created this new site so that he could share his family road trip with his extended family and friends as well as providing a journal of his travels to reflect upon after his return.

His Travelstreaming site takes the Lifestreaming concept of aggregating social services data, but puts focus on a specific event. His site displays his vacation schedule, photos, blog posts, and several other GPS based activities. Alan has also provided details on many of the tools he used to build the site including several mobile client apps, Brightkite, Flickr, Yahoo Pipes, and more.

REM Tour 2008

This niche based method can be used to create many new forms of Lifestreaming for a variety of purposes. Another good example is the R.E.M 2008 Tour Website which allows fans to add their Lifestreaming content to the site by simply adding special tags to content they submit to YouTube, Twitter, Flickr, and blog for each concert venue during the tour.

As many of you already know, I am a big fan of the Drupal CMS platform. It offers great functionality and tools for Lifestreaming. The REM site was built by Blake Lucchesi who I’ve met through the LA Drupal user group. He’s written a great case study describing how he built it.

These are just 2 examples of how the Lifestreaming concept can branch out into other areas and I’m sure we will continue to see many more creative ways that people will leverage it in the future.
