NYMAP update


I almost forgot!

Andrew Lynn, who is spearheading the NYMAP/YVXN thingamajig flew to Portland last week for a visit.

For those of you who aren't "in the know", NYMAP stand for the National Youth Media Access Project. I guess somebody didn't like the acronym though, because now I think it is being changed to YVXN, which stands for Youth Video eXchange Network. The idea is that cable access centers around the country will be able to digitally swap youth-produced videos. So far, it is still in the testing stages, with only a handful of access centers being involved, but the hopes are to eventually include many more.

NYMAP computer is here!


We finally got our super-sweet computer that we will be using for the NYMAP youth video exchange.  Unfortunately, I got it about 5 minutes before I left for vacation, so it has just been sitting around for the last week.  But now I am back, and ready to put it to good use.  Youth media swapping, here I come!

I'll post another entry when I actually have a chance to try it out, and learn more about the whole exchange process.
