I watched the video and the guy seems like nothing more than a huge jackass but what I found interesting was this...

"Pseudo.com, a live audio and video webcasting website founded in 1993." I thought to myself it was unlikely so I went and looked at the domains whois info and sure enough it wasn't created in 1993 but 1995. The name fits them well at least.

Yeah, the thing I found interesting was that they were streaming video before streaming had made its large internet debut. I believe he founded it in 1993 and set it up in 1995.

The guy was a really weird individual with a lot of weird ideas on where the internet was going with the ability to stream videos. He kinda had it right with his "Quiet" experiment, but to a slight extreme.

I caught this on Netflix a couple of months ago. SO WORTH WATCHING! Really cool.

The guy is a bit of a nutbar loser, but that doesn't matter. They do some awesome stuff, especially in the first half. I'd have to put this in my Favorites list for documentaries, for sure.
