In May 2009, I started a weekly video game stream on Justin.tv. Justin.tv was just getting video game streams, but people also streamed videos and webcams and hosted communities with their own forums. It was great. Over the next couple years, they removed the communities and forums, shoved all the gaming streams into a buggy new site called Twitch, and left the rest of Justin.tv to rot in obscurity until it finally died today.
I still stream every Wednesday night at Instagib. It’s not 2009 Justin.tv but it’s the closest anybody has come since. We’ll miss you, Justin.tv.
