META-CC.net, featuring an online real-time video captioning engine that provides multiple perspectives and resources to the mainstream news media, received Franklin Furnace’s Future of the Present 2006 Grant, supported by Jerome Foundation.
The website seeks to become an open forum for real time discussion and commentary of televised media by combining strategies employed in web-based discussion forums, blogs , tele-text subtitling, on-demand video streaming, and search engines.
As the project develops, additional features such as web-based remote channel switching, video archiving, further data-mining capabilities, and on-demand streaming of archived content will be implemented.
Meta[CC]is a project of the Conglomco Media Network.
Utilizing the expanding potentials for copying, appropriating, sampling, and synthesizing provided by the internet, Conglomco seeks to create projects that explore the possibilities of social commentary and creative activism in a networked and techno-savvy environment.
