Video: Solution-Oriented Media * Audio: Media, Culture & Consciousness

| | |

The media spends so much time and energy focusing on problems, but how can they do a better job at empowering citizens towards a vision of hope and possibility?



Music: On The Moon (Trip Hop mix) by disharmonic

This video features some insights on this from Sharif Abdullah, Marilyn Schlitz, Don Beck and Van Jones.

I conducted these interviews at a conference on Consciousness and Healing with the following two lenses:

* How the press can be more solution-oriented?
* How can the press better account for our subjectivity, worldviews and the influence of our culture?

The full audio of 10 interviews from the conference can be found below...

Episode 5: An Edited Debate Over Pre-War Intelligence

With potential indictments looming over Washington, here's a video of an edited debate of the different arguments surrounding the Niger uranium claims and pre-war intelligence that is at the center of Fitzgerald's CIA Leak Investigation featuring:

* Greg Mitchell, Editor of Editor & Publisher
* Cliff Kincaid, Accuracy in Media
* John R. MacArthur: Publisher of Harper's Magazine
* Retired Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, Department of Defense Policy Analyst
* Greg Thielmann, Retired State Department Bureau of Intelligence and Research

Political junkies are anxiously waiting for the result of Fitzgerald's 22-month invesitigation, and it will be interesting to see whose arguments stand the test of time. These interviews were conducted in July 2004, but the gap between the two perspectives hasn't changed all that much since then.

Episode 4: Open Media Summit Follow-Up

Description: I'm getting a lot closer to getting the collaborative editing infrastructure up and running. Here is my follow-up video from the Open Media Summit, with some of my thoughts and future intentions:

* Contact selected participants one-on-one.
* Specify the specific needs of the common ground that we share.
* Record and release the conversations as podcasts to build up the developer community and support network.
* Further specify job descriptions to give to volunteers -- and other action items.
* Promote these conversations to the larger network to recruit programming labor or financial resources.

Formatting to Optimize Vlog Remix Potential

| | |

The video blog creator wants to be properly attributed for their work, while the remixer would ideally want to have footage that can be seamlessly used in their productions.

So not including any watermarks or titles is in a vlog entry could encourage remixing. But at the same time, the original content creator wants to maximize the attribution for their work.

I sent the following two questions to Ryanne Hodson because she is in the process of remixing this vlog entry for the Rasiej campaign for Public Advocate in NYC.

I eventually decided to experiment with my second video blog entry by publishing two different versions -- the original version with titles and a more remix-friendly version without a watermark or any titles.

For future episodes, I'll probably chose to only publish versions with watermarks and titles until my film is completed -- at which time I'm open to releasing more remix-friendly versions.

Below are some more thoughts on finding the best balance between what's in the best interest of the creator and remixer...
