Remember when we complained about the Web 2.0 Expo having no video-related panels? Well, the folks at O’Reilly listened and gave us the mad-dash opportunity to create a session about a week before their conference. Inspired by one of the comments left here on NewTeeVee, we’ve put together a panel on interactivity and online video.
Here’s the blurb I just wrote, hot off the presses:
When you give users the ability to create and distribute our own content, we don’t just restrict ourselves to the one-way entertainment methods of yore. We participate, collaborate, communicate and mash up. For this panel we’ll be focusing on interactivity and online video as they fold out over web communities, take advantage of the advent of live personal video, and incorporate favorite activities like games. Panelists PlayCafe, Seesmic and Ustream are using online video to create an “audience” that is so much more than the traditional sense of that word.
So yes, this is a bit last minute, but many thanks to Mark Goldenson of PlayCafe, Loic Le Meur of Seesmic, and John Ham of Ustream for agreeing to this experiment. Please help us get the word out, and attend tomorrow, April 25, at 1:30 p.m. at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
