Set-Top Box, Independent Video on FCC's Sept. 28 Agenda | Gary Arlen | Broadcasting & Cable | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

Two hotly contested Media Bureau issues will take up most of the time at the next Federal Communications Commission open meeting on Thursday, Sept. 29.

The proposed Report and Order called "Expanding Consumers' Video Navigation Choices"—better known as "unlock the box"—will face a commission vote after an intense seven months of cable industry criticism. Chairman Tom Wheeler calls the plan one that will "modernize" FCC rules and "allow consumers to use a device of their choosing to access multichannel video programming instead of leasing devices from their cable or satellite providers." The proposal has generated tens of thousands of public comments, many spurred by Silicon Valley's encouragement of the plan.

Also on the agenda is a Notice of Proposed Rule Making for "Promoting the Availability of Diverse and Independent Sources of Video." The FCC intends to encourage policies that give non-traditional program producers easier access to delivery systems. Supporters of the plan contend that such program creators face barriers to carriage on traditional MVPD channels and also on new online distribution platforms.

Crafting Your Story to Pitch Your Great Idea

Once you've finally come up with that brilliant idea, here's a way to get people excited about it.

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 9, 2016 11:16 AM

Here's a fab post about how to formulate your story when you are getting to pitch your idea. But don't get stuck on the word 'pitch'. Think any presentation where you want to influence people:

  1. Selling your project across the organization
  2. Project reports when a decision or action is a desired outcome
  3. Sales presentations to alliances or prospects
  4. Anytime you need to raise funds or gain resources

 

What I really like about this article is that it's not a formula per se, but a way to think about your presentation and get your thoughts organized. That's the hard part, really.

 

Once you get these 5 points down, it will be easy to put together your presentation. Story on!

Little tribute to Tim Berners-Lee from the learning community | Donald Clark Plan B | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web and published the first web page on this day 25 years ago. Truly remarkable things have happened since then. His gift to the world of learning was a virtual world in which teachers and learners could have unlimited access to knowledge and use the network, that is the internet, to do things that were scarcely thought possible. It is one of the greatest of all inventions and human achievements and of unimaginable importance for the future of education and learning.

Nielsen Probes Viewers' Minds: Finds They Are Distracted By Screens, May Not Comply With People Meters

Nielsen Probes Viewers' Minds: Finds They Are Distracted By Screens, May Not Comply With People Meters | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

The study -- which is part of an ongoing series of research commissioned by the Council for Research Excellence to understand the nature of watching TV in the current viewing environment -- was conducted by Nielsen Consumer Neuro, which utilizes a variety of biometric measurement techniques to understand people’s conscious and unconscious interaction with media.


The findings of the study, dubbed “The Mind of the Viewer,” were described as preliminary, especially the part testing response to people-meter prompts, but it suggested that the kinds of media distractions impacting the way people consume media may also be impacting the way the industry measures how people consume media.


“We live in the age of distraction,” Carl Marci, chief neuroscientist at Nielsen, remarked, adding: “People make interesting choices with technology.”


When it comes to interacting with people meters -- the technology that is the basis for producing national TV’s advertising currency, Nielsen national TV ratings -- 25% of Nielsen people-meter panelists participating in the study did not respond to their prompts because they were looking at a second screen when the meter prompted them with a light....

It's Friday and time for some fun. This post chronicles the amazing influence Star Trek has had on our lives and culture over the years. It's a great read and you'll be saying to yourself plenty of times, "Who knew?!"

New deal gives Comcast $4M to connect Western Mass towns to broadband internet | Shira Schoenberg | MassLive

New deal gives Comcast $4M to connect Western Mass towns to broadband internet | Shira Schoenberg | MassLive | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it

Comcast will receive $4 million in state money to extend broadband internet access in nine towns in western and north central Massachusetts.

Under a deal announced Monday between the Massachusetts Broadband Institute and Comcast, Comcast will use the money to extend its existing network in those towns to 1,089 new homes and businesses. The state money gives Comcast an incentive to deliver high-speed internet to residents of rural regions, where it would otherwise not be cost-effective.

Under the deal, Comcast agreed to extend coverage to 96 percent of each town.

"This public-private partnership will deliver sustainable, reliable, and cost-effective broadband connectivity to nine rural communities that previously faced significant coverage gaps, allowing nearly 1,100 households and businesses to participate more fully in the digital economy," Gov. Charlie Baker said in a statement.
