Talking with Tim Berners-Lee (inventor of the Web)

Here’s the interview I did with Tim Berners-Lee. It’s short, 10 minutes, and got a couple of questions from Twitter in. I’ll try to get him to answer some of the other questions that were left on my blog. Unfortunately he could only give us a 10 minute segment.

We also filmed his talk at HP Labs and the Q&A with the audience after.

More this weekend on what he said, I gotta get some sleep.

Coolest video innovation I’ve seen in a while

Asterpix, on Monday, will ship a new system that lets you put interactive links on top of videos. You can see how it works on some demo videos they have up on their site now. I’m going over there this afternoon to get a sneak peak, more later!

The problem with these innovations is that they can’t be mixed with other video innovations, like DotSub’s very useful multi-lingual captions. Plus they can’t be put on live video like those from Ustream or Mogulus. At least that I can see. I’ll ask about if this stuff is possible when I visit Asterpix this afternoon.

Snarf down this white label RSS aggregator

Ever want your own RSS reader with your own feeds? Why would you want to do that? Well, to control what your readers see. And also to get a reader out there that has your own brand on it. I think I’ll load this on my dad’s computer so he can see my feeds.

Anyway, the reader is Snarfer.

Here’s one they created for me
(this is an EXE/application that you load if you have Windows).

I can see a lot of uses for this. It’s a nice, competent, RSS aggregator — three pane style. It won’t make me give up Google Reader, but for doing a custom thing this is pretty interesting.
