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 data collection

Our continuing efforts to understand mobile technologies and to make them more understandable for others extended to the Old Apple Tree Festival on Saturday. This was the second year in a row we have built an app for the festival, to investigate issues of medium and content.  In short, we have been comparing media forms, such as audio and video, and we have been comparing media content designed for a specific place, in situ, with content not connected to that place. We hope to present findings of this research at both the International Communication Association main conference and the ICA Mobile preconference in May in Seattle, among other venues.

The Columbian published a story on this festival, too, which included a mention of the research.
