I’m gonna try and make this post short and sweet because the conversation above says it all. In episode 24 of Reclaim Today Tim and I were once again joined by Andy Rush to  brainstorm the design and structure of an open course we plan on running in the new year called (#ds206video). Yeah, we are piggybacking on the venerable ds106 community, and figured it might be a good time to create a special topics course for folks to learn and share working they are doing around producing, creating, and streaming video. If the course is half as fun as the above discussion, it is going to be a blast, and it has been quite a few years since I have had the time and energy to work with folks to build out an ecosystem, and this post comes a few days late because I spent much of the last 3 days playing with Wiki.js, Peertube, and Discord, which will be at least 3 facets of this open course. I have a lot more to write about this, but I am still knee-deep in Peertube, which is a brilliant open source P2P Youtube alternative, that I have been looking for for the last 8 years:) There will be much more to come on the experience, but if you are interested join the Discord chat and get ready to co-create a community TV station around! #4life

I think the time is nigh, and if nothing else, Tim’s 20 second intro to the above video is not to be missed, click play and FEEL THE RUSH!

    When I was in grad school, one of the topics that came up constantly was Public Access TV and the promise/democracy promise it held as part of the FCC licensing for Cable TV station. And the biggest example of a “success” was Paper Tiger TV. Which still has a presence today on some cable access stations. That’s not the primary emphasis here, but at one time the gov’t. mandated teh peepulz had to have access to the cable airwaves. So reclaiming that TV is a thing. And is right there carrying on that tradition. More about Paper Tiger TV here:

    I wish I watched videos. I’d have realized you were serious about the ds206 earlier. Now I feel bad. I read your posts. Clearly I do.
