Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)
This montage provides a 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.

FVM app public launch: June 9, 2012
Just a quick post to commemorate the official launch of the Fort Vancouver Mobile app today. More than two years in the making, this app has brought together the talents and efforts of more than 100 people, and it was a great joy to see all of those using and having fun (and learning) with the app today. This is a major milestone moment for FVM. So I want to pause for a second to thank everyone who made it happen! I feel enormous gratitude toward each and every one of you! Special thanks are due to: Dene Grigar, Greg Shine, Joe Oppegaard, Brady Berkenmeier, Troy Wayrynen, Marsha Matta, Forrest Burger, Deva Yamashiro, Kapuanani Antonio, Fred Kemp, Tracy Fortmann and all of the Fort Vancouver staff. ... Additional recognition should be extended as well to Berkenmeier, director of the "Kane's Wanderings" module, for his continued commitment and advancement of the app. Besides the Kane piece, the "Kanaka" module also was a part of this launch. In addition, we gave out about 200 cards with installation instructions today, so I will look forward to checking analytics and viewing this day from behind the scenes as well, to get a better sense of the push we made. Will keep you posted on what we learn from today. ...
