So I’m thrilled to see the two come together today, with this announcement that Nokia handsets will now carry the multimedia platform (which competes directly with Flash).
While I’m stacking links, here’s that Wikipedia link to the concept of “Participatory Video” that I mentioned in class last week. It seems to really fit with what we’re doing in this class of ours:
…a set of techniques to involve a group or community in shaping and creating their own film. The idea behind this is that making a video is easy and accessible, and is a great way of bringing people together to explore issues, voice concerns or simply to be creative and tell stories.
Finally, here’s the link to the blog coverage of that Magazine Publishers Association Digital Media Conference we discussed in class (“video, video everywhere!”), along with more information about my former MSNBC colleague, Gary Seidman, who is now making a living from producing online slideshows.
