I'm in Savannah, Georgia, today at the International Digital Media and Arts Association conference, with the rest of the Washington State University Vancouver faculty in the Creative Media and Digital Culture program, including several of the FVM project contributors: Dene Grigar, John Barber, Will Luers, Michael Rabby and Aaron May.
Our group presented a panel on "Teaching Mobile Design" in the morning, and then I presented an individual talk in the afternoon on "Net Locality: Exploring New Ways of Storytelling and Learning with Mobile Devices at a National Historic Site." Both went wonderfully, as did John Barber's individual talk on "Thoughts Toward Situation-Centered Mobile Apps Usability." We all spread the word widely about the CMDC program and the Fort Vancouver Mobile project, and several people approached me throughout the day to talk about FVM, from across the country and even abroad, including a professor from the School of Digital Media at Sripatum University in Thailand.

Video highlights from the apps (20-minute version)
This montage provides a short sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.
