New Media Tools


New Media Tools, originally uploaded by stevegarfield. CC BY-NC-SA



I presented New Media Tools at Jeff Pulver's Social Media Jungle in Waltham, MA.

Jeff has links to some people who blogged about it on his post, Recap - Social Media Jungle: Boston - from the people who where there.

I covered three things, Photo, Audio and Video.

PHOTO
For the photo experiment, I asked the people formerly known as the audience, how many had cameras. Most did. Then I asked how many had cameras that could post to the web. Those that had connected cameras then took a photo of a selection of new media tools I brought to the meeting.

Established media outlets need to embrace readers and viewers and solicit them for content. We have the technology.

Note: Click on any of the images to see who took them and where they posted them. The majority were sent to twitpic. Flickr supports adding a license to your photo, so on the flickr photos, I've included that license below the photo. Twitpic should include that. It would be nice if Facebook provided embed codes so you could easily share photos outside of Facebook on places like blogs. They need to support Creative Commons licensing too.

One of the flickr iPhone uploading tools that looks cool is Flickit. RWW has a review of Flickit here.

What tools do you use to send photos to the web?

Next, I used Utterli to dial a phone number and interview Matthew Ebel. Here's the interview and photo.

After the interview, I took a photo and emailed it in to Utterli.



Utterli then attached the photo to the audio and posted to my blog.

This isn't that interview, but it's a photo Doug Haslam shot and uploaded to Utterli.



VIDEO
Finally I showed how you can use Qik and a cellphone to stream live video to the web.



Since the video was under 10 minutes, Qik also automatically uplaoded it to YouTube.

  1. Great talk, Steve. I posted another one at http://herot.typepad.com. It was more work to set up than I expected but should be easier next time.
