Video publishing via IM

Video publishing via Instant Messaging is continuing to grow at a manic pace, as AOL adds video capabilities to its IM client.  According to to Christine Perey's latest piece on Streamingmedia.com:

Consumers are increasingly interested in communicating with one another visually. And there’s really nothing easier to use than IM so there is no learning curve associated with starting a video stream from any desktop computer with a video camera.

Christine goes on to quote Spencer Johnson, director of product marketing for the Logitech Video Business Unit:

We anticipate millions more people are about to discover value in having a webcam connected to the personal computer.
