The BBC’s new documentary, The Virtual Revolution, is ploughing a few new paths. Not only is it broadcasting an official hashtag every time it appears on a Saturday night (#bbcrevolution is way longer than my suggested #vrev… so much for crowdsourcing, but hey). It’s also allowing anyone to mashup its footage in a Creative Commons kind of way. Very nice of them. Of course, some of the results are, rather than re-imagining the storytelling, designed instead to make fun of the pundits on the show. Darn that InterWeb! This one is by Cassetteboy.
