early experiments with linked video clips

There have been a number of comments expressing an interest in a method of linking video clips contributed by different people. I was part of an experiment several years ago where such software was developed. I just found remnants of the web site for that project in the Internet archives. If you go to the archives (http://www.archive.org/) and insert http://www.Knowledgeassembly.net into the "way back machine" you'll get access to some of those old web pages. Be patient, seems to take a while for these pages to load. Michael T. Keehan from Prescott Arizona led this effort. I have not been in contact with him for a few years, and the web site is no longer active, so I don't know if the software is being used anywhere currently. I'm sure he would be fascinated with what's being discussed on this list, but I'm not sure how he feels about his past project that did not work out as he hoped it might.

Linked video qusetion? Hi Ed, Can you give us a brief explaination of what you mean by linked video? Is it combining video the way hypertext is links text? A video stream is made by combining different videos from various urls? Or is it something else? - Thanks, Michael > > There have been a number of comments expressing an interest in a > method of linking video clips contributed by different people.

Michael, The system was something like bulletin board/threaded discussion software. Several of the people involved had previously created computer conferencing software called Participate or Parti. Participate was organized by topic and had an inbox that showed only unseen/new messages for the topics that you were following. (If you have been online for 15 or 20 years, you might remember Parti on The Source or Parti on CompuServe.) The Knowledge Assembly software was also organized by topic. Video clips were uploaded to a specific topic. The software kept track of which clips you had already seen in the topic and only showed you the most recent/new ones. Multiple people could upload to the same topic. A PC based program, called the Knowledge Producer, managed the capture, compression and up loading of a video clip made from a WebCam. When someone connected to the web site, their inbox showed the topics that they were following and if there were new/unseen clips in those topics. When new clips were played, they executed automatically one immediately after the other without interruption. With "talking head" clips this gave some sense of a discussion among the people commenting. The video clips were all managed as part of a database on a streaming server. All of the software was based on Microsoft products. Does that give you a better picture of how operated?
