mmr07: teckensprak – a tool for teaching sign language

mmr07: Teckensprak Originally uploaded by robinhamman. Gunilla Wagstrom, the “world’s first deaf tv producer”, and Ingeborg Swartlingare from Swedish Educational Broadcasting are giving a presentation about a project called teckensprakswebben. They’ve created a website that helps people to learn Swedish sign language more easily. Navigation is done by clicking on themed station names along a flash based subway map. So, for example, sport or kultur. Once within the themed area, there are around twenty words, each signed by one of forty-five notable person such as well known television presenters, the wife of the Prime Minister, and others. The video can also be sent to mobile phones. The idea behind the project came from who Ingeborg who, at the beginning of the presentation, told us that she met a deaf man several years ago and wanted to get to know him but didn’t know how to ask him to go to the theatre (which is signed in Sweden) or for other activities. She thought that if there were short videos available online it would be easier to learn specific signs. I think the idea of arranging language around themes, and mapping those themes to a subway map, could be useful for spoken language instruction as well – but Gunilla sees her own future, one in which everyone can sign, which has the advantage of ensuring even the busiest public places remain quiet, people can chat as much as they like during films and performances, and even scuba divers can...

mmr07: blogging, not email – a quote well spotted

Linkitä, linkitä, linkitä! Originally uploaded by tuija. Tuija grabbed this shot of Richard Fair (right) and myself on stage at the European Broadcasting Union, waiting to give our presentation earlier. While looking at her blog, which is mostly in Finnish to largely unintelligible to myself, I spotted a quote that really resonates with what Richard and I said during our presentation – that we don’t necessarily want people to send us emails, we simply want to know where people put their stuff so we can link to the best stuff. Here’s the quote Tuija blogged: “[E]-mail just doesn’t work as well as it used to. Between spam and the general increase in traffic, everybody’s inboxes are overflowing these days. The last thing many people want is yet another round of incoming messages. At the same time, blogs are taking over the Web” [originally on Washington Post] PS. Hilary is doing a much better job with the live blogging than I am at the moment. I seem to have peaked around...

noodlepie interview with guido fawkes

By on Mar 29, 2007 in BBC, blogging, blogging techniques, journalism, politics, social software | 2 comments

Graham Holliday, who blogs at noodlepie spent some time recently talking with Guido Fawkes, often referred to as “Britain’s biggest political blogger”. Guido recently interviewed Nick Robinson who didn’t think much of the final product – using his rather good BBC blog to tell Guido to grow up. Guido later apologised and Nick pointed to it from his blog. Make that the second big third big UK blog spat of the year after Guardian v Telegraph and the Sam Sethi Le Web 3 thing. Anyway, Graham’s interview with Guido is certainly worth reading, thus the post rather than a simple delicious...
