Impressive video

September 29, 2007

This video shows a cool new networking technology that really blows me away.

The reason that it is so easy to pay attention to the video is that you are working with new information that the video is giving you, you cannot sit passively. My head was spinning working out new ways that this service will change the world. For example you could take a picture with your camera with internet access google the image and find out all kinds of information about whatever you would like to know, just another use of the hive information that the Internet allows.

But back to the video. You see Aguera y Arcas but he is not just standing up there drolly lecturing about a topic. He is directing a guided tour about the software and is showing examples of what the technology can do, far from just using the channel of speech to communicate his views. The presenter could have been on the other side of the world since the focus of the video was not on seeing him but on observing the capabilities of the video.

This application demonstrates that the interlinking of media via the Internet can open really amazing possibilities. I don’t think that you could achieve the same effect with a scrap book of pictures and a Rolodex of pictures;)
This application is really cool because it shows the new permutations that technology is allowing that people would not have dreamed of 10 years ago. What will this this technology kick off? Who knows.
