C-SPAN KARAOKE

FREE SOFTWARE FOR COLLABORATIVE AND CONVIVIAL VIDEO VIEWING

C-SPAN KARAOKE software displays media that streams from public archives of
the CSPAN.org website, along with karaoke tunes gleaned from various free
offerings on the web. So, gather together with friends and loosen up those
vocal cords...

While you are navigating the flows of institutional political process,
faithfully and invaluably documented by CSPAN, you can always break out in
song...and the louder the better. Use CSPAN KARAOKE and your voice in
collective chorus with friends, to navigate CSPAN video streams - whether
these be representations of illegitimate authority or suspect versions of
reality.

Sing with conviction, because resonant frequencies have been known to
shatter glass.

A NOTE ABOUT C-SPAN ARCHIVES

Although streaming video archives are available at the CSPAN website as a
not-for-profit, public service of the lucrative American cable television
industry, they are only publicly accessible for a brief period of time.
Some more significant videos may remain available longer, but most CSPAN
videos can be accessed for only a few months before they disappear.

The disappearing CSPAN video archive means that over time, the accumulated
list of video titles for CSPAN KARAOKE software may contain an occasional
"dead" link, a gap in collective memory of institutional political process.
Note that the more recent videos will always appear conveniently near the
top of the selection list for your KARAOKE pleasure.
