Why Videocommunication Didn't Catch On
WNYC's The Leonard Lopate Show: Why Videocommunication Didn't Catch On (July 25, 2006)
From the post:
Computer scientist Jaron Lanier looks at why—despite all the predictions—videocommunication never caught on.
Pretty interesting. Discussing the non-verbal cues that we are missing in video conferencing.
(I wish WNYC would have permalinks on their site for each of these segments. I would rather post on my own blog than on Delicious but for now I have to click on the Delicious link and copy the URL and so forth. - That's for you Brian, if you are listening)
Video Video Comments
Techcrunch Blog Archive Grouper lets video viewers leave video comments
YouTube too.. I think. With the proliferation of online video services, we are starting to see a good amount of competition on features. Good stuff..
Yet another video system for adding tags/comments in time
"The keystone feature here is the ability to add tags and comments tied to particular points in a video. Those tags are then searchable, so if I want to find the particular point in one of my videos that I tagged “touchdown,” that’s easy to do. I can also have a conversation with other users regarding a particular moment in a video and choose to embed the video on another site in it’s entirety or only from a particular point I select. While users can link to particular points in a Google Video as of last month, that’s easier and is just the beginning in Viddler."
Record iChat Audio and Video
From the site:
"Finally, an easy way to record your iChat audio and video chats. Conference Recorder is an add-on for iChat AV which automatically transforms your conference sessions into QuickTime movies. "
GarageBand 3 allows the recording of audio and snapshots from iChat conferences as well..
Wondering where I can find an API for iChat to develop these types of things myself...?

Verizon Naked DSL Working!
In July, I complained that Verizon was constantly changing my IP address.
I theorized that it had to do with my impending transition to VoIP and that Verizon may have been punishing me... Well, turns out that I was wrong and that it was probably due to a lightning storm.
After contacting support several times I was finally sent a new DSL modem which is working great. I am still having some period disconnects but the reconnect is almost immediate and I am once again happy with my DSL. The speed is much closer to where it should be as well.
In other news, I was able to transition my phone number to Broadvoice and keep my DSL (without any problems). Now when I pickup the phone at home that is connected directly to the Verizon line I get a message saying that this is a dedicated data line and can not be used to make calls). Yippee!
