Hi guys I have added another 72 photos to my gallery in the photography part spread throughout various albums. The main reason why I have found and been working on these photos is that the company Golden has been running a promotion where if you purchased 3 of their products you could make a 20 page photo book from snapfish

Thirty years ago on May 18, 1980, I was a senior in high school in Spokane, Washington. It was Sunday afternoon and I was still feeling the pain from a beer-induced hangover, you know, the only kind you can get when your best friend Russ throws an “End of High School” party for the senior class
Finding the Frame , a website dedicated to giving feedback to newspaper multimedia producers and video journalists has launched. My post in Mastering Multimedia last month, “Video at newspapers needs to improve,” resonated with many people

Sheridan College would like to invite you to our “Interactive Multimedia 2010″ industry night. Go to the Facebook Event Page – Please RSVP and invite others See the Graduate Website and Pick our Brains! We are excited to showcase a multitude of talented individuals. Our theme this year, is “Ready for the Harvest” where we would like to give you the opportunity to pick our brains.
A slap upside the head always comes when you least expect it. “You have the coolest job ever,” said a hockey fan standing behind me admiring one of my photos at the Spokane Arena last night. I was on deadline preparing to transmit my pictures of a blowout Spokane Chiefs hockey game back to the paper when those six words stopped me cold. “You have the coolest job ever.” Up until that utterance, I’d beg to differ.
Steph, Su, Nancy and Isaac with ICICONS! Sheridan Interactive Multimedia students helped build a 3D digital game called IC3D for the Ontario House Pavilion at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. The game lets players move “ICICONS”, Ontario attractions that have been frozen in ice, around on a 3D monitor using mobile devices as a controller.
I’ve been working on a presentation I will give next month called “Photojournalism in the age of the Internet.” In the process, I’ve been thinking a lot about how much photojournalism has changed for newspaper photojournalists. With the rise of the Internet, traditional photojournalists have been faced with a dilemma

Photojournalism in the age of the Internet
It’s been a challenging year on the multimedia front. Many newspapers retrenched by refocusing their limited resources back on traditional print products and away from online innovation. This is in sharp contrast to the rush to develop online products so prevalent in 2008

One of the most exciting things about working for Symbian is that its model enables a wider variety of contributions than source code. Contributions of all forms are valuable, including words (in the form of discussions in the various forums and Ideas site etc) but also test effort. There are many areas of platform testing that are resource-intensive and common between companies, for example interoperability testing and multimedia playability testing. Therefore one of the specific ideas we have been working towards is a web database to enable community memebers to coordinate testing efforts and collaborate. This will help reduce R&D time and costs for everyone.

Improving browser / player integration Following on from my earlier post about the role of mobile in the lean forward / lean back worlds, there are a number of ways in which browser / video player integration can be improved and streamlined. Plenty of you I’m sure will have ideas here. A few of us in the community have been discussing this already, and a forthcoming blog post will outline these ideas. If you have any of your own, please feel free to feed them back as a comment

Pictured above is the 2010 Sheridan Interactive Multimedia class (in part) at the Fall Tour of Toronto Interactive Studios arranged by Oddly Studios. Our first stop was Grip where we entered via slide… The paparazzi took shots from the bubble reception area… We walked the streets of Toronto on this beautiful day each of the six groups of about 30 saw a half dozen studios of the 20 or so fantastic studios on the tour who spoke about their philosophy and the state of the industry… Thank you Tim, the volunteers, the studios and all the students we met on this wonderful Fall Tour – cupcakes for all!
Following this forum posting in the multimedia forum , in which a developer was interested in a particular API. The documentation available for this was quite thin. Thanks to the efforts of various people at Symbian and Nokia, the first set of documentation for this API is now available . I think the key takeaway from this story is to highlight that the multimedia community can help resolve issues and improve problem areas, so if you are in a similar position to this developer and haven’t yet dipped your toes into our forums, then we look forward to hearing from you!
My last blog post generated many useful and interesting comments – so many thanks to all those who made the time to write back, both on this blog, and to its identical twin on the main Symbian blog page. A number of comments focused on codec availability, and of course this is an important and difficult topic. In responding to the blog comments, I hinted at a more complete response on our codec strategy, and this is something I will do once the details are clear. However, while codecs are of course an important topic, they are by no means the complete view of this domain. So to scope future discussions, I thought I would frame the domain: Codecs: the debate between proprietary vs.

Multimedia: Seen, Heard… But What Is It?
Of course, I mean this figuratively – multimedia should be both seen and heard, preferably on high resolution displays with rich audio! But the problem I’m highlighting (“I” being Martin Webb , Symbian’s Technology Manager for Multimedia) is that multimedia is a means to an end, rather than the end itself. Applications and users aren’t bothered about containers and codec profiles – they just want media to play, immediately will be fine thank you, but certainly not with any delays. Multimedia should “just work”. Given Symbian’s transition into an open source project, I thought a good starting point for my multimedia blog would be to take stock of where we are. What are the key challenges facing the multimedia domain? I open with three: Playability Is King: Multimedia is a tool, and tools should work reliably. This isn’t yet the case – applications call “Play This”, and sometimes find the media isn’t playable. We need to ensure containers, codecs, stream sources etc work together reliably, failing only though a lack of device resources. This isn’t differentiating, it’s a hygiene factor – users assume that if a use-case is possible, it will always work, and so not working “negatively differentiates”. Sharing the burden through collaborative development is going to be an enormous help. Service Integration: More and more emphasis going forward will be placed on branded services – see the BBC’s iPlayer app on Nokia’s N97 for example. Such applications may want to manage video themselves, for example switching bit rates depending on network conditions. The platform needs to provide flexibility to these applications to allow them to differentiate. Picture Quality is Coming: devices are starting to appear that use tricks from TV land, such as dimming backlights, to improve picture quality. As displays get larger, this will increasingly become a differentiating issue. Ensuring the platform can work with these differentiating features will be key.

It seems this blog has lately become a record of my server problems but anyway If you tried to access my website during the last 2 days you would not have gotten anything. On Wednesday night we had a power failure and the server and router lost power and it seems that the server changed its IP address and the router kept redirecting the website requests to the old address

Click for Interactive Invite We are having our Sheridan Interactive Multimedia Open House at Function 13 this year in Kensington Market in Toronto. This is the home of FITO – the largest Flash User Group in the world and also FITC – one of the top digital media conferences. As such… we are thankful for Shawn and the crew for providing a FREE FITC Ticket as a door prize! So come on out! The invite this year is exciting as usual. It was created by the students and in particular Rob, Salpy and Matt with theme and organizational help from all of us. It includes an interactive augmented reality 3D portion. You print a page and look at the page with a Webcam and it shows a surprise 3D figure. This is something that we will be continuing at the open house in a very amusing way and also is involved in how we give away the FITC ticket. Here is a link to the Invite: http://imm.sheridanc.on.ca/go/openhouse2009wp Anyone can see the invite but for the second stage with the FLAR and 3D portion you will need to have a Webcam – if you don’t or just want to take a quick look at what it is like… here is a video of professor Dan Zen trying it out: http://imm.sheridanc.on.ca/go/youtube2009wp Please drop on by the event page in facebook and RSVP!
