Yes, you read that right. It may be hard to believe, but it has been 20 years since the first live stream made waves across the internet. In 1993, Xerox PARC was hosting a small show in Palo Alto when engineers who were in another room decided to test their new technology to broadcast on the internet. A band known as “Severe Tire Damage” was playing at the event, and almost by accident, their show became the first ever live streaming event. As explained by ‘Kickshuffle‘, it was only a year later that the ‘Rolling Stones’ were live streaming their work as well.
