The Internet has changed the way users watch and use media content. Users are no longer watching content passively but actively try to reuse, remix and then share their creations. Slowly but surely, the media world is changing from big broadcasters creating and distributing content to users creating content for mass consumption.

The BBC is leading a public service initiative to digitise and distribute audio and video content. Audiences can download, watch, reuse and remix this content in creative ways. BBC expects its users to become distribution partners and share the modified content over P2P (Peer-To-Peer) networks. The content is distributed using the CC (Creative Commons) license and does not use DRM (Digital Rights Management). However the license restricts the use of the material to the UK and will be a beta for 18 months.

"GoToMeeting is one of the best online conferencing tools I've come across so far. It is also one of the most economical. GoToMeeting lets you share your screen safely and easily through corporate firewalls almost instantly."
