Blogging live from the 24/7: DIY Video summit
The DIY Video Summit has kicked off with an engaging presentation by David Buckingham about his current program of research, focussing on everyday, vernacular video making. This was followed by an engaging talk by Mike Wesch--creator of this viral video--and his anthropological studies of YouTube conducted in collaboration with his students. Eric Garland is now speaking about his company, BigChampagne, and its work in tallying DIY media distribution online.
If you're interested in joining us, the conference is being streamed live (I'm sitting up the back in the right-hand corner with Lalitha Vasudevan...).
If you're interested in seeing some of the websites referred to by speakers, the tag everyone at the conference is using on Del.icio.us is: video247.
Today's video247 panels are being streamed live into Second Life as well: http://slurl.com/secondlife/IML/60/128/52
