(Well, at the very least, we’ll be taking up a few seats at the bar.)
2015 has overwhelmingly been the Year of Livestreaming. Not only has it taken off as an entertainment medium, but also a viable career path on the ever-changing internet. From the announcement of TwitchCon, to multi-million dollar e-sports tournments, there is no better time to be in this budding industry. This is the ground floor! #hype
