    Hi Jim.

    I just noticed this message about the cspan karaoke project from about 2 weeks ago. I do not know how I overlooked it. Apologies.

    thanks for taking a look. The project uses Perl along with Lingo for the Director-based application. The Lingo "talks" to Perl scripts that are on my website (The Lingo scripts trigger Perl scripts to retrieve info from cspan, for example). The capability of Director to incorporate streaming video is not supported very well...but it is there.

    The project uses the ephemerality of streaming video as a positive reason to annotate it, i.e., to render the streams "parsimonious". Thus the annotations become a means of archiving the disappearing content of videos that do not remain publically available for very long.

    C-SPAN Karaoke is a performative off-shoot of a project of video annotation.

    Barbara
