Justin.tv - Waste Your Life Watching Other People Waste Their Lives

I'm not sure what to say about this, other than state the facts:

Justin has strapped a camera to his head. That camera feeds everything he sees, says and does straight to the Internet, 24/7. It just started today (he's about to go rock climbing). He is blogging and posting updates via Twitter. Justin also posted his cell phone number on the site.

From a few minutes of watching, I've already heard things like "Dude, you can't say that online - don't say that again" and "I'd offer $100 for someone to do a DOS (denial of service) attack on them", in response to a disruptive chat participant.

Techcrunch has the inside scoop, as usual.
