DID YOU KNOW? Facts about Oregon Media Personalities

University of Oregon filmmakers Michael Majdic (Media Services) and Denise Matthews (School of Journalism and Communication and now at the University of Georgia) are producers of "Roll on Columbia: Woody Guthrie and the Bonneville Power Administration."

Fans of Woodrow Wilson Guthrie's life and legend (Arlo Guthrie's father) may be unaware of the month he spent on the federal payroll. In the spring of 1941, a penniless Guthrie traveled with his family to Portland, Oregon, for a job with the Department of the Interior's Bonneville Power Administration. The feds needed a folk singer to write songs for a documentary film about the construction of two dams on the Columbia River, and Guthrie was hired to spread the message that cheap electricity meant power for the people. Guthrie wrote 26 songs during his 30-day stint -- the most prolific period of his life -- including such chestnuts as "Roll on Columbia," "Jackhammer Blues," and "Grand Coulee Dam."

Combining footage from the original government film with present-day interviews, filmmakers Majdic and Matthews reconstructed this unlikely union of social activist and massive government project. Predictably, Guthrie's music provides the backbone of the film, helping to bridge together commentary by son Arlo and Pete Seeger with crackly black-and-white construction scenes and scenic panoramas of the Columbia River basin.

3-D COMPUTER GRAPHICS HEADING FOR HOLLYWOOD Movie mogul wannabes are using the 3-D graphic engines created for games like Quake to produce animated movies, turning out impressive results at a fraction of the cost of high-end graphics studios like Pixar. This latest phenomenon is dubbed "machinima" (for machine cinema) and it's forecast to be a major force in animation, fueled by the imminent arrival of a new generation of hardware and software promising photo-realistic "cinematic computing." Last year, the first full-length machinima film -- "Anachronox" -- toured film festivals around the world, and the first machinima music video -- Zero 7's "In the Waiting Line" -- is spicing things up at MTV. Meanwhile, Epic Games, publisher of the popular Unreal Tournament series, recently released a 2003 version that includes a movie-making tool called Matinee and Maxim is talking about putting a similar capability in the next version of "The Sims." "The convergence of games and Hollywood is gaining momentum, and machinima is right there in the thick of it," says Paul Marino, co-founder of machinima pioneers the Ill Clan and head of the recently formed advocacy group, the Academy of Machinima Arts & Sciences.

LINUX: THE MAGICIAN AND THE MAGIC. Talking with the San Jose Mercury News, Linux creator Linus Torvalds gave this explanation of the evolution of the Linux operating system since it origination (when he spent six months personally writing the original code): "It all boils down to hundreds of different groups. A group can be a huge company that has an agenda. Or it can mean one person at a university working on a research project. They have their own thing they want to fix. All of these people make their modifications, and not all of them are accepted. I see it as a kind of ecosystem. You have survival of the fittest. Some changes work better. Sometimes it is for purely technical reasons. It's just the right thing to do. Sometimes it is for personality reasons. Some people who push their changes are more likely to get things done because they are nicer about it. It's not really centralized. I am at the center, but I don't direct any teams. All these people are trying to pull me in different directions. Some groups pull together in the same direction. It's a very dynamic situation."

COLLEGE VIDEO GAMERS ARE A MULTITASKING LOT. Forget the stereotype of college video game players being nerdy guys who hunch in their cave-like dorm rooms and spend all day blowing up virtual bad guys. A new survey conducted for the Pew Internet & American Life Project shows that 60% of female college students said they played online and computer-based video games, compared with 40% of male, while roughly equal numbers of both sexes played PlayStation, Xbox and other console-based games. And rather than squandering their study time on gaming, most students indicated they used video game playing as a brief study break activity. "It's not taking away from studying; nor is it taking away from other activities," says researcher Steve Jones, chairman of the communications department at the University of Chicago. "What they seem to have done is incorporated gaming into a very multitask-oriented lifestyle." (AP/ 6 Jul 2003) Source:NewsScanDaily

INTERNET MAY BALANCE TALK RADIO'S POLITICAL POWER. LA Times columnist Ronald Brownstein says the unprecedented success of presidential candidate Howard Dean's online fundraising efforts may herald "the moment when the Internet emerged as a political tool comparable in strength to talk radio… Dean's success doesn't mean the left will dominate the Internet. But unlike talk radio, the Internet isn't dominated by the right -- it offers both sides a chance to mobilize support. And right now, the left may be ahead of the right in seizing this tool's potential." Brownstein notes that while the Internet doesn't yet have the universal coverage of radio, three-fourths of Americans now have access to it, nearly two-thirds in their homes. A recent survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press indicates that 17% of Americans listen regularly to talk radio, while 15% go online every day for news. But while about half of talk radio's fans consider themselves conservative, those who seek news on the Net divide more evenly between moderates (39%), conservatives (35%) and liberals (23%). "It's unlikely liberals will establish the sort of lasting advantage online that conservatives enjoy in talk radio," says Brownstein. "But by taking such an aggressive technological leap onto the Internet, liberals, for the first time, may have a megaphone that can compete with the right's talk-radio message machine. It may turn out the liberal answer to Rush wasn't an alternative talker, but the mouse, the keypad and the browser." (Los Angeles Times 7 Jul 2003),1,4047196.column?coll=la-headlines-technology

ADOBE ABANDONS SOME MAC APPLICATIONS. Adobe Systems says the latest version of its flagship Premiere video editing program will work only with Microsoft's Windows XP operating system and its new Encore DVD-creation program will be limited to Windows-only compatibility as well. The news comes as a blow to Apple, which has long shared a customer base of "creative professionals" with Adobe. However, recent Apple software releases such as Final Cut Express and Final Cut Pro compete directly with Adobe products. "If Apple does it, there's no room for a third-party developer. Why do it when the (operating system) provider could give it away for free?" says the senior director of Adobe's digital video group. (AP 8 Jul 2003)

COURT SAYS THUMBNAIL IMAGE LINKING IS FAIR USE. A federal appeals court ruled that a search engine's display of miniature images of copyrighted works is allowed under fair use, upholding a similar ruling in February 2002. The plaintiff in the case, photographer Leslie Kelly, had sued image search engine firm Arriba Soft over thumbnail images of her works that were accessible via Arriba's search engine. Yesterday's decision, however, failed to confirm the legality of displaying full-size images in search results -- a practice known as in-line linking or framing -- and that case is now ordered to go to trial. "As to the first action (on thumbnails), the district court correctly found that Arriba's use was fair. However, as to the second action, we conclude that the district court should not have reached the issue because neither party moved for summary judgment as to the full-size images," according to the opinion. The framing technique is used by a number of visual search engines, including Google, Lycos and AltaVista. Nevertheless, the ruling was viewed as a victory by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which had filed a brief in favor of Arriba. "Web site owners can rest a bit easier about linking to copyrighted materials online," said an EFF staff attorney. "By revising its ruling, the court removed a copyright iceberg from the
main shipping lanes of the World Wide Web." (CNet 7 Jul 2003) Source:NewsScanDaily

COMING TO A COMPUTER SCREEN NEAR YOU -- TV COMMERCIALS Advertisers are putting their TV spots online, spurred by a combination of better technology, the spread of broadband and the failure of other online advertising formats. And while ad agencies are enthusiastic about the trend, analysts note that advertisers risk sparking a backlash among Web surfers already irritated by intrusive pop-up ads. "In the television world we've seen consumers become more and more frustrated with commercials. If you're going to start providing that kind of advertising technology on the Web, it's going to result in the same response from consumers," says a Yankee Group analyst. Currently, "rich media" ads make up a small portion of the $6-billion online advertising market, but the category grew last year to 5% from 2% in 2001 and further growth is expected this year. "It's minute compared to television. But, given the trends we're seeing, it won't be minute two or three years from now."

HAS YOUR PC BEEN HIJACKED TO SPREAD PORNOGRAPHY? Computer security expert Richard M. Smith says that in the last month network vandals (possibly linked to Russian organized crime) have found ways to take over PCs with high-speed connections to the Internet and use them, without their owners' knowledge, to send Web pages advertising pornographic sites. Smith says that "people are sort of involved in the porno business and don't even know it." Most PC owners don't know when their computers have been hijacked and the hijacking apparently doesn't damage the computer or disrupt its operation. Because so many different machines are hijacked to perpetrate this scheme, there's no single computer that be shut down to end the problem. Smith adds: "We're dealing with somebody here who is very clever." (New York Times 11 Jul 2003) Source:NewsScanDaily

WI-FI EVERYWHERE.WiFi wireless technology is showing up not only at airports, coffee houses, bookstores and fast-food chains, but also at truck stops, RV parks, marinas, beaches and laundromats. Some of the more well-known companies promoting wireless technology for Internet access are Starbucks, MacDonald's and Barnes & Noble, but there are also small and obscure operations offering wireless at places like the Truck Pride Travel Center in Massachusetts, the Austin Lone Star RV Resort in Texas, and Beach Wireless in California. Customers typically pay $3 to $7 an hour for wireless Internet access. Although most companies offering Wi-Fi services are losing money, it appears to be just a matter of time before enough people use the technology to make the industry profitable. Gartner Research is predicting that more than 53,000 Wi-Fi networks will be in place in the U.S. by 2008. (USA Today 11 Jul 2003) Source:NewsScanDaily
