Beyond Broadcast

So I’m heading to Boston tomorrow morning for the Beyond Broadcast conference. I’m excited because I’m presenting the project I’ve been working on as a student researcher at ITP this past semester — a socially networked MythTV remote. I’m looking forward to meeting Wendy Seltzer, who will be talking about MythTV, specifically as it relates to the Broadcast Flag, and other issues

I’ll be demoing the MythRemote on the PepperPad, as well as the newest prototype which I’ll be showing on my laptop. The gist of the project is a remote control for your PVR with networked video commenting and chatting that is time-coded and tied to a particular program. One possible application is the idea of collaborative annotations, creating a wikipedia style commentary for a particular show. Sort of like pop-up video created by and for the viewer…

Anyway, I’ll probably be posting some more here about panels & discussions that interest me from the conference…
