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.

Old Apple Tree Festival research this weekend, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 6
Michael Rabby, Brady Berkenmeier and I will be at the Old Apple Tree Park on Saturday, testing a new research tool we developed (with Joseph Oppegaard), focused upon the Old Apple Tree, the oldest such fruit tree in the Pacific Northwest. Every year, the city of Vancouver celebrates the tree and its history with this October festival. Last year, FVM collaborator Will Luers documented the festival in a short film, which we then edited into research clips, designed to test media forms at the site, delivered through mobile devices, phones and tablets. I probably shouldn't say any more than that right now, before the data is collected, but, if you want, come to the Old Apple Tree Park during the festival, and try out the free app. We'll be there from roughly 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. ... If you can't make it during that time, but still want to participate in our research, just send an email with the details of your interest, to: firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll set up something, by appointment.
