ITP’s graduating students will be presenting a wide variety of highly creative and interactive projects that they have constructed over the course of their final project seminars.

Students have been encouraged to undertake projects that bring together the conceptual and design issues that they have engaged in during their two years of study at ITP.

ITP will be providing a live webcast of all the thesis presentations.

‘The Fourth Screen’ Mobile Media Festival :: global mobile media festival
This festival looks very interesting. They are pushing people to think about the phone in a different way, not just as a television that is carried in your pocket as it seems the providers are pushing for:
‘The Fourth Screen’ Global Mobile Media Festival will focus on the mobile phone as an emerging social, cultural and technological phenomenon.
We invite artists, technologists, and other creative thinkers to submit creations, inventions and concepts in two categories:
1/ moving images: videos made with mobile phone, movies, animation and games intended for mobile delivery
2/ wise technologies: software art, software and hardware that proposes new uses for mobile multimedia communication, applications that have positive cultural, social and economic impact in diverse cultures

Yahoo! Go – TV

Yahoo! Go – How It Works – TV
I had mentioned Yahoo and their TV initatives earlier so I figured I should give a pointer. While this exactly what I found the most interesting, it has a similar concept. (The Yahoo! Go TV Concepts were more interesting)

Yahoo is integrating TV with internet based video search and Flickr along with Music and Movies, complete with reviews (and sooner or later all of the other things you can find on Yahoo’s site).
