Session Suggestions

What do you want to talk about? What do you want to hear about? Post session ideas below. If you think the ideas that arise here really are worth having, propose them as sessions on the day! Be sure to include your name after your session idea.


  • Juggling. Juggling and its many uses. suggested by A Juggler.
  • Net Neutrality; both in relation to the current political situation in the US and the recent announcement by UK ISPs in relation to the BBC's iPlayer) -milk
  • DRM; necessary evil to ensure the co-operation of content rights holders or the unfortunate outcome of failed business practices that is essentially defective by design? -milk
  • New Spin on the Music Business - Workable idea or flight of fancy? -milk
  • Collaborative Storytelling - Hype or help? Is "collaborative film-making" a new concept or a new marketing angle? Looking at how three different "interactive" approaches to story are developing (SanctuaryA Swarm Of Angels and Prom Queen)
  • A brief overview of how TV companies are using (and sometimes abusing) virtual worlds, suggested by Mike Butcher, of tbites.com and the Virtual Worlds Forum
  • Crowd-sourcing metadata: Could the community make it easier to access TV online by collaboratively compiling an open and machine-readable web of links? - Chris Jackson
  • Making systems using Kamaelia (a toolkit for slamming disparate systems together by making them simply components)- by delving inside some Kamaelia systems - Kamaelia Macro - a tool for transcoding entire DVB channels for timeshifting purposes (example front end ); how to build a simple P2P swarming radio system using Kamaelia; can also look inside something completely different - say 3D systems or the networked whiteboarding app ? (or AIM or IRC integration? Or how to use kamaelia in non-kamaelia systems? ...) -- Michael Sparks
  • Scifi As Reality - A technique for brainstorming new research areas in the context of TV. I've done this session at 2 foo camps now, and wondering if this is overkill. It's fun though and is probably applicable to other domains -- Michael Sparks
  • "Children's TV is Alive and Well and Living in Web 2.0" - ugh, sorry, a 'point-oh' reference, but my other snappy title was 'Johnny Ball Must Die!', which sounds plain nasty. I'd like to talk about SciCast, which is trying to resurrect factual kids' TV. Would someone from Bebo like to talk about Kate Modern? Anyone else doing similar stuff? -- Jonathan Sanderson
