The idea may sound a little morbid, but an undertaker in the UK has started broadcasting funerals live over the Internet. Funeral directors at S Clark and Son hope that by doing this, they'll be able to bring family/friends together during times of mourning. The service is offered for free, and there's a log-in/password feature to keep services private. Personally, I'd find it a little weird to be watching a funeral in one window and IMing on the other, but that's just me.
