Iraq Veterans Against the War have taken it into their own hands to show the people of the United States the gruesome face of war. IVAW members return to uniform, this time to serve their country in different way. You have to see it to believe it: straight from the streets of Baghdad to the streets of New York City, Operation First Casualty.

Taking online production to a new level, “Drawn by Pain” tells the story of a young woman pushed to the edge of insanity and the animated demons that are unleashed by her rage. A half-anime/half live-action series told in 12 parts, “Drawn by Pain” is created by a small passionate team of artists, all striving to bring a new and “never been done before” film series to the web.
The background music is thrilling and shivers will run down your spine. Which is quite astonishing in the web, which is populated by comedy.
You can also watch the episodes (in rather bad youtube quality) online.
See architect and activist Edward Mazria’s compelling presentation, which calls on buildings to be carbon neutral by the year 2030. Mazriahas been speaking to leaders from the building industry and government on practical ways to reduce buildings’ carbon footprint.
This is a web episode from e2 | pbs. I’m a little suspicous because of the sponsoring of big firms like Shell and others. But nevertheless an interesting video.
The creators of miro, the Participatory Culture Foundation have created an overview to underline the differences between joost and miro.
They also posted an article about why they think that miro is better than joost.
Why would a company like Joost want to make an internet application that’s so restrictive? Because if they are successful, they will control both creators and viewers. Creators will have to sign a contract with Joost if they want to reach Joost’s audience. Being in the middle of a transaction is a good way to make money. But building a gatekeeping system for internet TV is a terrible direction for the future of media.
In contrast, Miro is an extremely open system. The software is open-source and can be modified by anyone. Anyone can publish to Miro and nothing comes through our servers. Like a web browser, the connection happens directly between the viewer and the creator. We don’t even lock-down the content guide– anyone can create an alternative channel guide for Miro.
I’m using miro for some month now and (without having a TV set) allows me to watch series like simopsons, family guy but also films from independend media.
