Re: [videoblogging] definition of linked video clips?
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?
