Learn Something @ MIT TechTV

11 Aug

The other day I stumbled upon the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) online video channel and had I difficulty pulling myself away from the array of lectures and experiments there. I watched a lecture on Google algorithms, the creation of an advanced space suit and even watched Salsa lessons. All these videos truly give clear look into the lifestyle at MIT.

In this new era of online dominance, it’s time to shout “I Want My MIT TV.”

Plain English Video Series Rocks

6 Jun

Jason Therrien directed me to this website a few months back and since then, I can’t stop watching this channel. How many times have you been in a conversation and you asked someone to explain that in plain English? Denzel Washington in one of his murder investigation movies said to a suspect, “Talk to me as if I were a 5 year old.” In other words, explain to me a few easy sentences what you mean. Plain English by Common Craft takes any topic you can think of and breaks it down into 2 minute YouTube video a 5 year could understand.

Check out the Plain English YouTube Video Channel

Mashup For You, Mashup For Me

13 Mar

What is a mashup? I define a mashup as combining unique items together to achieve something dramatically different that is overly unique. This act of synthesis is currently driving the innovation of today’s technology. Think about when chocolate met peanut butter to create Reese’s cup.

Google maps combined old MapQuest technology with Ajax to create innovative maps. Microsoft took the versatility of Flash and combined it with .net to create SliverLight. Thur-You layers single YouTube clips over each other to form new music tracks.

George Nemeth twittered Thru-You, a mash-up by Kutiman, that is so unique it will make your head spin. This artist took the time to listen to individual video clips of musicians, find similarities and then combine the clips to make new music. I can’t stop listening.

More posts from Leading Hands about mash-ups are coming.

Web 2.0 Goes Primetime

19 Feb

This week I was under the weather, so I had the opportunity to flip through the channels and I was surprised to see various shows capitalizing on Web 2.0 features. TV always seems to mirror qualities from real life; now the Web is having an impact on the shows we watch. I just read a statistic in OMMA magazine that more Internet users with the average age of 35 are watching shows on the web than on traditional TV.

Trivial Pursuit
Home viewers read trivia questions ala YouTube style to the contestants. You can upload your own question for a chance win some money. Then the two contestants battle against a mob of users logged on webcams or pseudo webcams. They call it the contestants versus America. Peter Brady aka Christopher Knight hosts it daily, check your local listings.

New MTV Afternoons
New afternoons on MTV features three shows, Sex… with Mom and Dad, Room Raiders 2.0 and Parental Control. During the introduction of each show, the host stands between two monitors and emcees the conversation. A teen viewer is on one webcam with a question for a featured member of a reality show consistent from the last episode that is on the other webcam.

iCarly
Finally I saw that there is a new show called iCarly starring Miranda Cosgrove that appears on Nick. The show is about a girl that starts her own online web show that counts down the top YouTube videos. Basically a TV show about an online TV show, which to me is truly Web 2.0.

How are you adapting your business in the world of web 2.0? TV is finally catching on and making it work, how can you do it?

Mogulus – Live Streaming TV in Beta

7 Feb

I was watching the morning crew on WKYC today and they encouraged the viewing audience to chat with them online. I logged on to the Channel 3 website, but I was more impressed with the opportunity to watch them live on the web through Mogulus.

Mogulus is watching live broadcast TV online. The website is in “beta”, but I was truly surprised that it’s teeming with a multitude of channels from around the world. After checking out WKYC for a second, I watched the Italian version of Big Brother, a U2 music channel and a Green Day concert. I also stumbled upon a swim meet from Iowa. I was also surprised you could also setup your own Mogulus channel and start webcasting live today.

WATCH

  • Live, 24/7 On-Demand Video
  • Many Pre-recorded shows too
  • Multiple Channels of Music, Sports, News and More
  • Chat with others watching the show

BROADCAST

  • Live in a single player
  • 100,000+ live viewers can watch at once
  • Embed on your website aka WKYC
  • Multiple camera shots

Get lost on all the “Live” broadcasts on Mogulus.

Watch Videos at Sony’s MyPlay

5 Jan

Sony launched a website that features music videos from your favorite artists like the Kings of Leon, Beyonce, Britney Spears, ACDC, T-Pain, and many more. I like the interface becauseĀ it is easy to use and I was able to surf through the videos easily. I would recommend checking out this website.
