Periskop is a project where two buddies and I have made a bunch of videos of and about Fastaval, later on we covered Østercon and who knows what the future will bring?
We were bored.
Speaking mostly for myself, I can't sit still. Something has to be happening at all times, and Periskop has been that something.

Sure the list isn't short and it helps a lot to have the right toys - but not working on a desktop when editing video makes it difficult.
