New interviews on YouTube

This post is in this blog because it covers the implications of broadband etc. some of it is animation but the animX blog will become mostly about content, especially next month as Animated Exeter gathers focus in real space and time.

So far I have been loading some test videos to YouTube as Will Pollard and developing script outlines for Rougemont Global Broadcasting. Exeter TV continues with the aim of a local cable or satellite channel. Meanwhile the samples on YouTube from Exeter TV show material that could be part of longer broadcasts.

I think there needs to be a step change so that Exeter TV and other people with cameras can improve quality. There is a gap between what turns up on YouTube unofficially and what is on mainstream TV. Support of various kinds from arts organisations would be a contribution. Exeter City Council may have a view on how the city is represented online. Reportedly there is no support for Flash on council screens at this time so awareness of YouTube is not what it might be.

Ahead of Two Short Nights I did get some press authorisation so was able to video live talk during the screenings and do some interviews with David Salas and Lee Morgan. I tried out four cameras, two for stills one with zoom, a Canon borrowed from Exeter TV and a disgo from Exeter high street costing less than 30 great British pounds. More on the stills later. The interview with Lee Morgan was in the cinema away from the noise in the bar which seemed a good idea at the time. However the lighting comes from up above and the results are dreadful on both cameras. So this is now sound only with some web links as text.

There will be updates so I think I will wait for new material before another edit. This is more like a record of what is available now than an edit. Exeter TV has a level of quality control but these are just intended to demonstrate a possibility.

Sometime next year there could be another interview with Lee Morgan in outside light. A trip to South Devon would be interesting. Apologies for the lighting this time and also to David Salas for introducing an extra L into his name. Too late now but the next edit will be more careful.

I think the issues covered could be commented on by many others. If you put a video response or text comment onto Youtube please keep a record somewhere. High definition media can be left at Life Bytes on Sidwell Street opposite the Odeon.

Answers please to the following questions

What is the consequence of Web technology for how content is created, distributed and marketed? Is there any sort of business plan that allows this to be viable? Can a news organisation integrate print and web?

see also previous interview with Dr Jo, using the disgo. He may have more to say so more than one final edit is required for balance.

sorry about this repeating things
not sure if this will turn up on multiply automatically
The blog import feature on Multiply is working well. Not sure they found everything but my various Blogger sites have now all been merged in date order
Have started a site at Multipy, home for the Deming Forum India.

The claim is that all my Blogger posts will be copied there as well. This could aid coherence.

Eurekster check from yesterday ahead of another visit to LifeBytes. Previously I posted on the wifiExeter blog about a meeting at Life Bytes. It turns out that these meetings follow on over several visits so I am not announcing a precise time for an updated version. Sometime after Nov 5th I will be on holiday for a couple of weeks but if you want to meet in real time / space probably I will be near LifeBytes every other day. Opposite the Odeon on Sidwell Street, Exeter.

Main conclusion so far is that the ePub format has potential both for commercial publishing and the creative commons. So I feel it is ok to work with both.

Something else I realised is that I had forgotten about this blog. It really is the best place for integration. I tend to wander all over the place. If in doubt, start a new blog. Well, the new policy will be to think about whether a link here would be a better move.

Slide one shows the main words from previous presentation, grouped as "corporate" and "collaboration". Maybe these work together or people can choose which end to start with.

Slide two shows where the swickis fit in

(reminder, a swicki is a sort of search engine with some aspects of a wicki, why Eurekster is not better known is a mystery for another time)
