                    Life Simplified with Connected Devices

                    Kelly Flanagan's lab at BYU did a concept video to show how connected devices simplify life. My son Bradford did the screen writing.

                    Kynetx and Personal Data Services: Project Neck Pain

                    One of the technologies that seems to be picking up steam lately is the PDS or personal data service. The PDS goes by other names as well. David Siegel calls it a "personal data locker" in his book Pull. Drummond Reed has determined the right name is personal data service rather than "store." I talked about the problem with the name and enumerated some principles for personal data services after IIW DC. I'm certain that the PDS will be a significant topic of conversation at the upcoming Internet Identity Workshop XI in Mountain View, CA (register here). Why all

                    The Netherlands Song

                    Scott Dastrup and his brother Jordan put this video together for their sister's school project on the Netherlands. Scott was one of my scouts many years ago. I still remember a song he taught me about peanut butter. The melody in this song is catchy and Scott and Jordan are good performers.

                    Dan Solove on Reputation

                    Clifford Thomson sent me a link to a talk Dan Solove gave at Google on his new book The Future of Reputation. I interviewed Dan on Technometria a while back about his earlier book The Digital Person. Dan's a very interesting speaker and raises important issues in his books and in this video. This is well worth watching if you're interested in the intersection of privacy and reputation in the Internet age.

                    Ping vs Sun

                    A few days ago, someone at Sun made a video that poked some fun at Ping Identity (disclosure, I'm on their advisory board--I think--it's been a long time). Ping fired back with a humorous video of their own. Heck, if they both keep acting like this, the world's going to have to pay attention to federation, just for entertainment value alone!

                    Bill Gate's Last Day

                    This video of Bill Gate's last date, from his real last CES keynote is quite funny. I think it's awesome that Billy G can make fun of himself like this. There are so many parts of this that just make me smile.

                    Getting Free HD TV Programming

                    As I mentioned before, I bought a new HD TV for Christmas (a Sony 40 inch XBR4). That put me on the hunt for good sources of HD programming. Something I overlooked for a while, and I'm sure I'm not alone, is over-the-air, free programming from local TV stations. We're so used to the "antenna == bad" school of thought that the cablecos dished out for the last twenty years that we don't even consider it. There's no doubt that for analog television antennas almost always produced worse results than satellite or cable, but for digital, that's no longer

                    iPhone Copy and Paste

                    No, copy and paste isn't one of the new features in today's iPhone update, it's just a concept video from lonelysandwich. This is a pretty good way to show how it would work--much more effective that text could ever be. I love the voice-over on the iPhone man. Nice. \t\t\tiPhone Copy and Paste from lonelysandwich and Vimeo.

                    Blending the iPhone

                    If you've ever wanted to see the inside of an iPhone, then this video of an iPhone in a blender is for you. Or...maybe not.

                    HD-DVD Processing Keys Getting Some Late Play

                    A few months ago, I wrote a post on HD Processing Keys and the futility of DRM. I pointed to an article on Engadget that talked about the AACS processing keys being retrieved. As a quick aside, the processing keys are a little like the master keys that allow hundreds or thousands of discs created before April 23rd to be ripped. Yesterday, the story exploded when someone posted the keys, it got lots of action on Digg, and then Digg pulled the story in response to a complaint from the AACS. My post happens to be the first hit

                    Bugatti Veyron At Speed

                    Niels Makel sent me a link to this video of a Bugatti Veyron at top speed--407 km/h. This is the same car discussed in this IEEE Spectrum show on IT Conversations. Without taking away anything from Spectrum Radio, this video shows that some things are better experienced with video, not just audio. I was sitting on the edge of my seat. It's truly amazing.

                    Viacom, Joost, and YouTube

                    Today, Viacom stuck it to YouTube and Google by cutting a deal with Joost to host Viacom videos. So far no Comedy Central. Here's the question that this raises: what happens to cable companies when content owners like Viacom are making deals with Internet companies for distribution? Now would be a great time to short cable stocks.

                    YouTube For eGovernment

                    David Stephenson's arguing that YouTube will prove itself a critical tool for emergency management. Government agencies could already make much better use of video, podcasts, and screencasts than they do. Once they catch onto their importance, they'll need to realize that content aggregators like YouTube are a much better alternative than burying these services on some agency Web server.

                    Images and Video in Collaboration

                    Last week I was working on a short piece for InfoWorld about collaboration--what companies spend too much money on and what they don't spend enough on. One inexpensive collaboration tool that is underutilized is video. I'm not talking about video conferencing, but the now near ubiquitous ability to create and easily distribute short videos. If there's anything YouTube has taught us, it's that user-created video is coming into its own. In a recent article called Video Knowledge, Jon Udell references the work of Sean McCown, a professional database administrator who writes the Database Underground blog for InfoWorld. Sean's been

                    EyeTV Hybrid for Macs

                    A week or so ago, I picked up one of these EyeTV hybrids, a little device that has a USB connector on one end and a cable connector on the other. Plug it into your computer, connect up the cable and you're watching TV. There's an online program guide so you can schedule recordings of upcoming shows--just like TiVo. The device works with the Apple remote that comes with the new iMacs, Minis, and MacBooks. The best part is that it can automatically takes things you record and put them on your iPod (or at least into iTunes, to

                    Audio Podcasts: Competing with Non-consumption

                    Brett Nordquist likes IT Conversations better than the Scobleshow, although his reasons have little to do with content and much to do with format. Simply put, video podcasts compete with a different segment of the 'Net for user's time that audio podcasts do. Brett comments that when he's at his computer watching video its far more likely to be YouTube than it is a video podcast on technology 'ala the Scobleshow. Audio podcasts compete with radio, music, or, in some cases, non-consumption (i.e. the fill time that the listener wouldn't be listening to anything else). This doesn't change with

                    TubeSock: In Honor of YouTube

                    In honor of the acquisition of YouTube by Google (which I wrote about on Between the Lines), the app of the day is TubeSock. Tube Sock grabs YouTube video and converts it to run on your iPod or PSP. Now you can take the insanity with you where ever you are and make archives of your favorites. Enjoy...

                    Tim Street on Producing Viral Video

                    Tim Street(click to enlarge) Tim Street is speaking about viral video. Viral video has some important things in common: Easy to share OK to share (no too explicit) Controversial - takes risks Emotionally engaging The last point is the most important. Tim goes through a list of primary and secondary emotions. He shows different video clips (and their stats) for various emotions. Use emotion to engage. Some critical advice: think about who the audience should root for. Who's the hero? Who's the antagonist. This is basic story telling and applies to blogging and podcasting as well as video. Spectacle vs.

                    Craig Syverson on Video Podcasting and Production

                    Craig Sylverson(click to enlarge) Craig Syverson is giving a great talk on producing video for distribution on the 'Net. He breaks it down into a series of steps or concepts. First, what's the concept? What are you trying to accomplish? What's the feeling and who's the audience. How will it be experienced? This is a question that really applies to 'Net distributed video. Will people see it on an iPod in an airplane or in their living room on an HDTV? What's the strategy? How does it fit into the corporate strategy or what you're trying to do? Growth and

                    Hardware Video Encoders and Decoders

                    I need to broadcast video, fairly high quality, line-of-sight. The basic idea is to broadcast an encoded signal over a 5.7GHz link using some Motorola Canopy gear. In February when I needed to do this, I hired a company who used hardware encoders and decoders from a company called Integral Systems Design, but I can't find them in Google. Any one know of this company or similar boxes? I'd love to pick some up on eBay or something so I can avoid the ongoing cost of renting.

                    Rocketboom

                    Amanda Congdon(click to enlarge) I went to Amanda Congdon's plenary session at the end of Syndicate. She's the host of Rocketboom, a videoblog that deals with serious and not so serious news. I've heard of Rocketboom, but hadn't seen it before. I enjoyed the clips she showed and will probably go have a look from time to time. They are getting 350,000 unique views per day and half that is international. There's only about 6 staff members, allowing the production timeline to move at a very quick pace. Syndicating video requires working with multiple formats: wmv (multiple versions), mov (multiple

                    Video Podcast on IT Conversations

                    Michael Geoghegan Today's IT Conversations podcast is a talk by Michael Geoghegan on monetizing podcasts. Podcasters intent on monitizing their shows should also consider opportunities to leverage their valuable podcasting skills. So argues Michael Geoghegan who has successfully monetized both of his original podcasts, and gone on to forge a full time career as a podcaster-for-hire, launching successful shows for large media companies such as Disney. In this talk, Geoghegan highlights the special window of opportunity for podcasters wishing to sell their skills in these early days, before podcasting becomes a commodity.

                    If Microsoft Sold the iPod...

                    This parody of what the iPod packaging would look like if Microsoft sold it is simply too good not to share. Update: The original link apparently isn't working anymore. Here's another, but if that doesn't work for some reason, just go to YouTube and search for ipod repackaging. There's several copies there.

                    Intel iMac vs. G5 iMac Boot Times

                    You Tube has a short video showing an Intel iMac and a G5 iMac booting while they sit right next to each other. The Intel G5 boots almost twice as fast. I'm anxious to get my hands on a MacBook.

                    Using VLC to Create iPod Ready Video

                    A few days ago I wrote about using VLC to turn MPEG2 video from the Tivo into something that will work on your iPod. I had some funny problems with the aspect ratio and the GUI-based approach is fine for a single video, but it's time consuming since each conversion takes near real-time (i.e. one our of video takes a little more than one hour to transcode to MPEG4). Well, there's a better way. VLC has a command line interface and it works lovely. Not only can you run the command on multiple files in batch mode, but you

                    Video iPod and Tivo

                    Friday I picked up a new iPod (60Gb, Black). I spent the weekend figuring out how to get video onto it from my Tivo, DVDs, etc. Here's what I've discovered, so far: As I posted the other day, it's easy to download programs from your Tivo to your desktop. What isn't easy, on a Mac, is converting the shows to MPEG2 from the wrapper that Tivo puts them in. As I said in the earlier post DirectShop Dump will do that on a PC. You have to install the Tivo Desktop Connection first. I happen to have Virtual PC
