Hey Sean, I was and am glad to see you here..! Ok, a bit less modesty this time. I have been working on a system called Interactive Tele-Journalism, which is in a nutshell a means to produce live, interactive television event coverage utilizing low cost hardware and open source software (along with some software that I built). Although the site is a bit out of date, much information can be found at: http://www.walking-productions.com/itj/ Although this system is meant for live (interactive) television, there is no reason why similar means couldn't be used to generate video blog like content although in it's current state it probably wouldn't be more efficient than means currently in use by this community. Another group that I have been involved in is somewhat represented by the unmediated.org blog. We have been tossing around concepts, technology and so on with the basic idea of furthering our goals of bottom up media creation, distribution and audience involvement. We are working with p2p, blogs, bittorrent, rss and various other publishing means along with some custom hardware and software development. More about this later... Currently taking up my time is planned coverage of the Republican National Convention in NY later this month that is going to be utilizing the ITJ system described above. We are going to have 2 camera crews feeding live streams out for broadcast on MNN (the Manhattan Public Access Channel - Hi Jay) and hopefully for internet consumption. The interesting portion of this is that the audience is via a chat applet able to send comments, questions and thoughts to the "tele-journalists" as they are broadcasting thereby giving them means to influence the programming. I see this as a sort of half way point between true citizen journalism and traditional broadcast news coverage... In any case, that is what I am up to.. -shawn On Aug 8, 2004, at 1:46 PM, M.
