The Virtual Revolution mashed-up by those darn users

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.

    Sad thing about this show is its apparent under promotion & lack of buzz.

    Oh, and the “sitting with a mac in varied locations to underline this is all about technology”.

    Apart from that – very enjoyable. And of course @ajkeen stole the show with his dog remark.

      evidently hasn’t been under promoted on the web….

    I’ll be looking out for the credit for Ivo Gormley’s “Us Now”….

    Supremely ironic that a programme that bills itself as…
    “A unique open source BBC documentary about the web.”
    …is restricted in the BBC iPlayer and only available in the UK. Thank goodness for bittorrent!

  • Mike Butcher

    I believe the show will appear on the BBC iPlayer internationally shortly. (The first show to do so I gather)

    • Steve

      Not according to @aleksk. See tweet here…

      Which is a shame as it goes against the whole ethos of the project and means that some of those who contributed can’t watch.

      • Mike Butcher

        Yes, correct, shame about that.
