Up Front Sunday Morning:

If you like the Simpsons you may want to go over to the University of Oregon campus tonight to meet Mike Reiss, writer/producer of the Simpsons, and co-creator of The Critic, and the winner of four Emmys. This special presentation with video clips from the Simpsons never shown on TV is a free event. It will be held in the EMU Ballroom today at 7:00 pm and doors open at 6:00. You can pick up free tickets at door - but arrive early.

On Friday, June 13, the Student Film Festival sponsored by the School of Journalism and Communication will begin at 7:00 PM on campus in Klamath Hall. This is a great opportunity to see the latest documentary, animation, and fiction film production by students from across the campus.

And, speaking of the University of Oregon, students on that campus needing a laptop so they can do their academic work anytime, anywhere,can now access nine new laptop computers--seven Dell Latitude D600 (Windows) and two Macintosh iBook machines--available for checkout in four-hour blocks during weekdays. The laptops also may be checked out overnight or for a full weekend. For complete information about the laptop loan program visit

If you have ever questioned the value of advanced planning and the storyboarding of your media project I strongly recommend you see The Russian Ark. It is a feature film triumph of conceptual design, advanced planning, and meticulous production with 90 minutes of continuous shooting without a single cut. Such a production has never been done before.

The film, directed by Alexander Sokurov has a cast of nearly 900 actors and was filmed in one day at the Hermitage museum in St. Petersburg, Russia - home to over 3,000,000 art works. The film is a time piece moving between historial Russian periods and you are one of two principle participants as the camera becomes your eyes and ears.

Director of PhotographyTilman Büttner uses a steadycam mounted to his body to float through the film interacting with characters and the building itself. As it is physically impossible to record more than twelve continuous minutes of conventional film, they had to turn to video. However, it was only the fairly recent arrival of compact 24p High Definition cameras that offered the visual quality and portability to make this film for cinema, eventually transferring the digital image to 35mm negative.

The Sony High Definition (Sony HDW-F900) camera allows one to get a picture of almost the same quality as conventional film. The problem was how to store all the video information since an HD camera can only record 46 minutes without changing tapes and the shoot required 90 minutes of recording time. The Cologne-based company Director’s Friend provided the solution. They developed a prototype hard disk recording system adapted to be portable and equipped with a special ultra-stable battery. This system could record up to 100 minutes of uncompressed image, but only once.

DID YOU KNOW? Facts about Oregon Media Personalities

Former Eugene residents Creighton Vero and William De Los Santos are the screen writers for the current feature film "Spun". The film, currently playing in theaters, is based on the screen writers' experiences with the drug scene of Eugene.Vero, a former University of Oregon journalism student, was working on a documentary about the region's crystal meth scene when he interviewed De Los Santos about his misadventures working as the personal driver for a meta-amphetamine manufacturer nicknamed "The Cook." Vero realized he had stumbled upon a great story. The two collaborated on a script which Roger Ebert calls "...a dark screwball comedy in which people run in and out of doors, get involved with mistaken identities and desperately try to keep all their plates in the air." "Spun" is directed by Jonas Akerlund and stars Jason Schwartzman ("Rushmore"), Mena Suvari ("American Beauty"), Patrick Fugit ("Almost Famous") and Brittany Murphy ("8 Mile"). The film is given a 3 star rating by Chicago critic Roger Ebert.


DISCUSSION: Digital Story Telling

Storytellers have been those who have best provided insight into our deepest truths. Storytelling allows us to share values, pass on wisdom, and to explore the uniqueness of being human.

Each story teller has used the tools of the day. Early camp fires provided light for creating shadow images on the cave wall. Minstrels strummed and sang to communicate stories and news of the day as they traveled from town to town.The pen, printing press, and during the 18th century lantern slides were used to enhance the storyteller's presentation. Today, many storytellers work in digital media.

Digital storytelling use the power of words, images, sounds and interactivity to communicate their messages. Weaving their stories with a rich array of multimedia resources the storyteller is able to provide a unique experience, Some stories may involve each audience member in the storytelling process. Stories can have multiple endings decided upon by participants. In some situations stories can be added to or transformed by other storytellers. Digital technology allows any possibility and the Internet provides a way to distribute the story material world wide.

As you explore the digital story telling resources below you will find this form somewhat familiar in the micromovies, about which I wrote a few weeks ago, are a part of this digital extension of the art of storytelling.


Digital Storytelling Resources.An excellent collection of links to articles about digital storytelling, web sites, digital story collections, interactive and hypertextual fiction, and many, many other resources that will provide you with insight into the depth and breadth of this new art form.

The Elements of Digital Storytelling. Provides tutorial study of the five elements of digital storytelling: media, action, relationship, context, and communication. This site provides links to many online digital stories using a variety of media combinations.

Digital Storytelling Association. Towards this end, in November of 2002, representatives from 8 countries, over 25 U.S. states, and a broad cross section of these interests, came together to launch the Digital Storytelling Association. The Association will be organizational and fiscally housed at the Center for Digital Storytelling in Berkeley, California and in the Fall of 2004, the DSA will seek to form an independent organization functioning with an elected leadership group.

The "Cookbook" is the publication used by the Center for Digital Storytelling in their workshops. It is an excellent introduction to the actual construction of an effective digital story, from storyboard to final product.

The Center for Digital Storytelling is a non-profit project development, training, and research organization dedicated to assisting people in using digital media to tell meaningful stories from their lives. Their focus is on developing large-scale projects for community, educational and business institutions using the methods and principles built around their Digital Storytelling Workshop. They also offer workshops for organizations and individuals, and provide a clearinghouse of information about resources on storytelling and new media.

Conversation with Dana Atchley, digital storyteller.By Joe Lambert. This article traces Dana Atchley's use of digital storytelling from experimentation with the medium to the integration of the medium in his corporate productions.

BBC Digital Storytelling. Everyone has a story to tell. Technology now allows anyone to tell it, with their own voice. The Digital stories on this BBC site are short films created and edited by people like you - using cameras, computers, scanners and your own photographs and artifacts. These stories can be evocative, inspirational, political, happy, hilarious, even sad. But all are personal stories.

Visible Knowledge Project. Digital stories are multimedia presentations which students construct to tell a personal story or narrate a history. This site highlights some of the resources on digital storytelling which are available online. It also features some resources on topics, such as digital video, which might be useful for those wishing to implement digital storytelling in classrooms.

Explornet Storytelling. Digital Storytelling enables elementary and high school students to explore their world and communicate their discoveries. These streaming videos can be viewed over a dial up connection or cable/high speed network connection. Not all videos have sound.This site includes student work; teacher work, and informational videos.


FEATURED STUDIO OR SCHOOL:Expression Center for New Media

Expression Center for New Media is located in Emeryville, California near San Francisco. The campus was built from the ground up to be the premier school for digital arts. Expression is a unique new media arts college where one can earn a Bachelor's degree in one of three programs: Sound Arts; Digital Visual Media (including animation, 3D modeling and special effects); and Digital Graphic Design. It utilizes the concept of Total Immersion as its teaching philosophy.



ALTNET AND KAZAA PUSH LEGIT P2P NETWORK. Sharman Networks' Kazaa and Brilliant Digital Entertainment's Altnet are teaming up to launch a new phase of peer-to-peer networking, harnessing the capacity of tens of millions PCs to swap authorized copies of games, songs and movies. Giving people an incentive to trade in legitimate files could create a powerful new business model for the entertainment industry and reduce file-swapping networks' role as hubs of online piracy, says Altnet CEO Kevin Bermeister. "The minute you begin shifting unauthorized files out of people's shared folders, the peer-to-peer networks (as sources of copyright infringement) begin to disappear. Lawsuits are the stick approach. This is the carrot." Customers who sign up for the new service will agree to install high-security file-swapping software and host files that are authorized for distribution through the network. "Peer Points" will be awarded each time someone uploads a file, with the points redeemable for a variety of bonuses ranging from free access to paid content to sweepstakes entries for big-ticket items such as cars or cash. The new Altnet service and a revamped version of the regular Kazaa file-swapping software are expected to be released in test form later this week. (CNet 1 Jun 2003) Source:NewsScanDaily

VIDEOGAMING GROWS UP. It used to be that young people interested in learning how to create videogames attended special schools, such as the DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond, Wash., or Full Sail in Orlando, Fla., but now videogaming is going mainstream, with traditional universities such as Southern Methodist University, MIT and the University of Michigan incorporating game-specific classes and programs into existing curriculum. "It's still a pretty immature media, but a discipline for actual game development is starting to make sense," says a Jupiter Research analyst. The videogame industry employs about 30,000 people in the U.S. and demand is expected to grow by about 15%, or 5,000 jobs a year, estimates David Najjab, director of SMU's new school of videogame making.

SATELLITE RADIO READY FOR LIFT-OFF. After a slow start, satellite radio is achieving real successes, and the two satellite radio companies -- XM and Sirius -- are both doing well. XM currently charges $10 a month and offers its 500,000 subscribers 70 music channels and 31 news, talk, and information channels, some of which have commercials; Sirius, which got a later start than XM, charges $13 a month and offers its 68,000 subscribers 60 commercial-free channels and 44 news, talk and sports channels with some ads. The satellite radios are now sold even in WalMarts, with prices as low as $70. XM radios will be optional in at least 70 new car models coming this fall from GM and Honda; Sirius radios will be optional in at least 65 new car models coming from BMW,
DaimlerChrysler, and Ford. (AP/San Jose Mercury News 2 Jun 2003) Source:NewsScanDaily

REALNETWORKS ROLLS OUT 79 CENT MUSIC DOWNLOADS. Spurred on by the overnight success of Apple's iTunes Music Store, RealNetworks has revamped its own online music service to offer single downloads for 79 cents a track. "We want to draft off the attention they've gotten before they come out with a Windows service," says RealNetworks marketing VP Dan Sheeran, referring to Apple's current concentration on the Macintosh market. RealNetworks' new offering is based on the Rhapsody service from, which RealNetworks agreed to acquire last month. The company also owns a 40% share of MusicNet, the online music venture it launched with EMI Group and AOL Time Warner, but has said it will no longer promote that service and instead will be competing vigorously for MusicNet customers.

VIRUS WRITING 101.The University of Calgary is drawing fire for its decision to offer a class next fall in "Computer Viruses and Malware," giving students the opportunity to perfect their virus-writing skills. Ken Barker, head of Calgary's computer science department, defends the decision, saying the class will enable students to better understand the motivations of crackers who are responsible for the proliferation of malicious attacks against corporate networks and personal computers. "Somebody who is suggesting we are doing enough really has their head in the sand," says Barker. In response to concerns that the students' work could lead to more cracking incidents, school officials say they've taken extra precautions, with plans to use a closed network and prohibitions on students removing disks from the lab, which will be secured 24 hours a day. But it's the financial consideration that likely will keep students focused on preventing viruses rather than proliferating them, says Barker. "They are not really employable as virus writers," he notes. Source:NewsScanDaily (CNet 27 May 2003)

EBAY LOSES PATENT-INFRINGEMENT LAWSUIT. A federal jury in Virginia has concluded that online auction eBay and its unit intentionally infringed on patents belonging to MercExchange. MercExchange is also seeking an injunction prohibiting eBay from continuing its current "Buy it now" program, which allows eBay customers to make fixed-priced purchases rather than participating in auctions. EBay is asking the judge to reverse the $35-million judgment against it, whereas MercExchange is saying that the judgment should be tripled, because the jury's verdict was that the patent infringement was deliberate rather than accidental.

SOFTWARE PIRACY DOWN IN 2002. Global business software piracy declined slightly last year, thanks to increased education efforts and more aggressive tactics by the software industry, according to a report released Tuesday by the Business Software Alliance. The study estimates that 39% of business software installed on computers worldwide in 2002 was not legally obtained, with the most common violation being purchasing a single legal copy and installing it on several computers, said Robert Holleyman, president and CEO of the BSA. To combat that scenario, the alliance is continuing to circulate brochures on piracy and is conducting amnesty campaigns urging businesses to pay for additional copies without threat of prosecution. In addition, companies like Microsoft have instituted new restrictions, requiring special activation codes for its software that are tied to a single computer. It's too early to tell how well these strategies have worked in reducing piracy, said Holleyman. The country with the largest percentage of illegal software was Vietnam (95%), followed by China (92%), and Indonesia, Russia and the Ukraine, all at 89%.

PERSONALIZED CANCER TREATMENT. A California startup company called Genomic Health has developed new cancer-screening tests to allow a physician to choose the best drugs for treating an individual patient's tumor. One cancer specialist, Dr. Ronald Natale of the Cedars-Sinai Center in Los Angeles, says: "In the future, a piece of patient tumor will be used to determine the best and most appropriate treatment for them as an individual." The same technology can be used by pharmaceutical companies to predict which patients are most likely to benefit from experimental medications.

LOOKING FOR MEANINGFUL PATTERNS IN YOUR LIFE? SEE DARPA! The Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is taking bids on a new project called LifeLog, which will help someone capture his or her "experience in and interactions with the world" via cameras, microphones, and sensors; the goal is to created advanced software to assist in the analysis of a person's behavior, habits, and routines. Privacy advocates are expressing concern, but DARPA spokesperson Jan Walker says that the "allegation that this technology would create a machine to spy on others and invade people's privacy is way off the mark." LifeLog's software "will be able to find meaningful patterns in the timetable, to infer the user's routines, habits and relations with other people, organizations, places and objects."

TIVO TO MARKET VIEWER DATA.TiVo, recently described as "God's machine" by FCC chairman Michael Powell, has begun offering advertisers and broadcasters detailed information on what TV programs and commercials its users are watching -- or skipping. TiVo executives say they will be gathering information only in the aggregate, keeping individual user data anonymous. "Advertisers and programmers undoubtedly will want to understand how the technology will impact viewer behavior, and this is the first opportunity for them to get data to understand how viewers are using the technology," says an IDC analyst. Unlike traditional TV rating surveys that indicate which shows consumers are watching, the TiVo data reveals *how* viewers are watching -- at which points they're fast-forwarding or rewinding for an instant replay. For instance, during the Grammy Awards, TiVo noticed a spike in instant replays when Julia Roberts walked on stage to give an award. TiVo's measurement service will initially focus on viewer habits during prime-time
programs and will be marketed as a quarterly subscription report. Customized data will be available as well. (AP 2 Jun 2003) Source:NewsScanDaily

Portland Multimedia | Internet Developer's Group meets Wednesday, June 18th, 7:15 pm. PCC Workforce Training Center (near OMSI)1626 SE Water. Room 104. TOPIC: Macromedia Contribute: Balancing Static and Dynamic Content It is currently a common trend throughout enterprise information technology (IT) shops to put everything in a database and make a web application out of it. But is this approach necessary? Often dependancies are created between the web developer and the non-technical subject matter expert (SME). The web developer gets bogged down making little changes (i.e. the lunch menu) while the SME gets frustrated by having to go through IT for every little change. In this session explore using the right Macromedia tools for the right job, understand the fit for Contribute and Dreamweaver MX, and get an introduction to Information Convenience. ABOUT the Speaker - Kevin Hoyt is a Senior Sales Engineer for Macromedia, Inc. and plays a primary role in evangelizing the product line, educating the customer base, and supporting the sales organization.
