Hey everyone, I thought I’d link to my other (brand new) blog where I discuss media technology and storytelling in the digital age. The function of the blog is to discuss my thesis next Spring. I’ll be posting research and brainstorming ideas. Comments are welcome!


Two interesting applications

From Ethan Murphy…

I remember that you were talking about using visualization software a lot and I was wondering if you had heard about IBM’s project called “Many Eyes”. I think it would be great for professors that want to upload research data sets and instantly have a bunch of ways to visualize that data to analyze it. It is cool too because then you can take those visualizations and drag and drop them into blogs, powerpoint slides, etc. The downside is that the information is public. Check it out if you haven’t already http://services.alphaworks.ibm.com/manyeyes/home.

The second one that I like a lot and that may be useful if people need to broadcast something quickly is called Stickam and it is basically a free, online based streaming solution that has bailed us out of quite a few jams when our streaming server went down or was not working correctly. http://www.stickam.com/

I could definitely see students using ManyEyes for presentations. I am specifically thinking about the Research Symposium. Jury is still out on Stickam, but I am open to ideas on how it can be used.


This is from a cool article I found today, take a look at it if you have a second



E3 stands for “Electronic Entertainment Expo”

It is basically a big 3 day showcase for many of the upcoming software and hardware in relation to gaming and sometimes other areas of “entertainment”.

Plenty of juicy announcements are made in the weeks before the show and during the show; for example: Rock Band 2 was just announced this morning!!

Here’s the wiki page for E3 check it out if you want to know more about the event

Hey Guys, I just thought I’d share one of my all-time favorite flash videos with you. It’s a music video for “War Photographer” by Jason Forrest and it’s animated by Joel Trussell.

Here’s the link with the info:

and here’s a link if you want to watch it in full screen (recommended):

This is a great example of using Flash effectively with other media (music) and Trussell is really able to do a lot with some pretty simple animations. If you like his style, check out the links to his site and look up some of his other animations, especially the other music videos. Besides, who doesn’t like Vikings, Robots, and Rock music?
