Sharable and Remixable video on Backstage
Some people have noticed there has been a huge increase in the amount of Video content coming out of Backstage.
Why is this?
Surely Backstage only deals with data, apis, feeds not video and audio right? We still do but were also here to inspire people to try new things. Maybe try building a prototype, build your next app into a little business or just go out and meet other interesting people. This is part of the reason why we use to put on big events like Mashed and Over the Air. However everyone is doing events now which is great but we're moving onwards and upwards.
We would like to reach the people who don't go to events like Mashed and Over the Air. And what's even better, you guys are going to help us. Your enthusiasm for what you do and love is very infectious. So if we can capture even a part of your enthusiasm and show it to others across the world, that would be a good thing for you, us and the others trying to make the UK dev landscape exciting and special.
Because this is backstage, sharing the video by putting it under a creative commons licence is a no brainier. We're not duplicating the creative archive, just doing what comes natural to the Backstage team. Actually we've been doing this for some time via blip.tv now but are planning to do a lot more with our video in the very near future.
Keep an eye out for much more video including exclusive interviews with people you know, met and would love to meet. Fear not, we are working on more data and apis
To get you all warmed up, here's a selection of videos from Northern Startup 2.0 which took place in Manchester on Tuesday 24th February. There under a creative commons licence so sharable and most of time re-mixable.
