The people at SightSpeed continue to impress me with their originality and creativity. I received an announcement this morning in my email of a new (beta) version of SightSpeed Light for MySpace. In the current version, it includes one-to-one video chat and video messaging between MySpace users.

It is implemented as a free widget for MySpace. It looks to me as if it is a variation, or further development, of the MySightSpeed flash-based feature that I wrote about in January - and which I liked very much. The announcement says that it currently works between MySpace users, but that a version which interoperates with other versions of SightSpeed will be coming soon.

I think this will be a really good addition for a lot of MySpace users.

About J.A. Watson

I started working with what we called "analog computers" in aircraft maintenance with the United States Air Force in 1970. After finishing military service and returning to university, I was introduced to microprocessors and machine language programming on Intel 4040 processors. After that I also worked on, operated and programmed Digital Equipment Corporation PDP-8, PDP-11 (/45 and /70) and VAX minicomputers. I was involved with the first wave of Unix-based microcomputers, in the early '80s. I have been working in software development, operation, installation and support since then.
