Just got a mail sent to the digital media working group at UW from Phillip Thurtle. Thought I’d post to the blog in case some students are not on that email list:
I’m writing to see if any of you have used “the pool” to post your projects? http://pool.newmedia.umaine.edu/index.php
It strikes me that this might be a dynamic medium for sharing and developing digital media. I’m curious to hear what others think.
Description from WWW site:
“online environment is an experiment in sharing art, text, and code–not just sharing digital files themselves, but sharing the process of making them. In place of the single-artist, single-artwork paradigm favored by the overwhelming majority of studio art programs and collection management systems, The Pool stimulates and documents collaboration in a variety of forms, including multi-author, asynchronous, and cross-medium projects.”
