  • - Wikipedia — The original was a single channel featuring Justin Kan. Wearing a webcam attached to a baseball cap and streamed online via a laptop-backpack system designed by co-founder Kyle Vogt,[10] Kan decided he would wear the camera 24/7, and he began streaming continuous live video and audio at midnight March 19, 2007.[11] Kan would be streaming his entire life (minus bathroom and bathing breaks) via a camera attached to his hat and a laptop rig created by co-founder, Kyle Vogt. While streaming, Kan interacted with viewers via an inbuilt chat system. His viewers liked to play pranks on him by reporting different supposed incidents to the police (now known as swatting) or sending large amounts of food to his apartment, both of which remain as still being somewhat popular Internet pranks even after the site's shutdown.[12]
