Is 4IP just about social media and web aggregation tools etc or is it also about digital video content made for the web (that's not solely user-created)? I'm hoping it's about both.
With TV on its last legs there is huge potential for fantastic video content made first and foremost for the web and mobile platforms (surrounded of course by social and community features and tools).
I just read an interesting blog cheerily called… Continue

When I was a domain name guru, I realised that there was a huge issue around ip (intellectual property) in the domain of ip (internet protocols), and so I had a personal mantra "Where ip meets ip you find ip (Ivan Pope)" So I'd guess 4ip is a play on 'internet protocols' and 'intellectual property' - but not 'ivan pope' (yet).

Is that how much actual programming you get in each hour or broadcast tv?

People complain about blogging, citizen journalism and the rise of the 'amateur'.
It's nice to see the BBC tackle the issue head on.

TED - Technology, Entertainment, Design - started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Now it has a global sphere of influence, and its speakers include Steve Pinker, John Maeda, Bill Clinton and Clay Shirky. Check it out here

"Two minutes later they were heading for Buccleuch Place, a six-story Georgian block which faced the more modern (and far uglier) University edifices. One tower in particular has been voted the building most people in Edinburgh wanted to see condemned. The tower, perhaps sensing this hostility, had begun to self destruct, great chunks of cladding falling from it at irregular intervals."… Continue

When blogging I mainly write about game based learning and related topics... http://learninggames.wordpress.com
As the University of Paisley is now University of the West of Scotland, my homepage needs a major update - so I'll not bother posting the link to that just now.

First off, let me say that I think Web 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0 are very real and game-changing. But they are not radical innovations based on technology - they are based on social phenomena.
Now that said, let's discuss real revenue models behind Web 2.0 and before we all start drinking our own Kool-Aid watch… Continue

Seeing as how 4iP is (I think) about modes and methods of producing media, I thought I'd throw in here something I've been thinking about for a while - what does a limited company look like in an age of distributed social media? Or, to put it another way, it is now possible (and quite common) to build a company around a disparate bunch of people who are not geographically located in the same place. Contributions to the project come in many different forms. Many social media or social network… Continue

What's the next big step for YouTube? We all know the phenomenon that is YouTube was bought for $1.65bn in Google shares because of the revenue opportunity from viral marketing. But there has to be better bucks to be earned from this medium. Sustainable
businesses are built on something at the core that delivers real social value, there has to be something more fundamentally valuable that watching the… Continue

Scottish games, social and mobile developers should be bouncing ideas left, right and centre after hearing that Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB) are making whooppee about their $100m iPhone app fund. The company has started an iFund blog
which should give some clues about what they want in terms of ideas. It could potentially be a useful funding partner with 4iP, too, if the project in… Continue

Not any more than in real life, I'd say. Marcel Berlins' piece in the Guardian today (spotted through the 38minutes sidebar, I hasten to add - ever so useful) seems to believe that the "anonymity of the web" is leading more of us to rant and rave, making the views of relatively few people appear to be the consensus.
Of course, if you're living and breathing the social web, instances… Continue

It's interesting to think in a world without PSB via TV/radio, what would we be missing out on. I think, conceptually, this is a good starting bloc for 4IP ideas. When thinking online projects, we often get wrapped up in the various ways to tackle ideas ("wouldn't this be cool"), sometimes without putting enough thought into what that core idea is in the first place. This is no bad thing to be so fired up about the potential of delivery, providing we keep returning to what the 'need' is behind… Continue

Been thinking about experiential content experiences
. Slabovia's been interesting for us, seeing how people will roleplay given the right parameters... ok, ARGs are pushing this side of thing, but a great line from Call Of Cathulu RPG is that 'the fun in role playing is in the role playing...'. I fear that the current take on ARG is too worthy and not enough about just acting up and having fun. (Note that the end of that quote is "...and not in the winning". That is something I think's… Continue

We are complex multi-faceted creatures, and perhaps we should have many blogs to reflect that. But life is short and I can only keep one blog up to date. This is not that blog. My real blog is at Platypus Innovation (hosted by Winterwell

"There is no use trying, said Alice; one can't believe impossible things. I dare say you haven't had much practice, said the Queen. When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
When did you last use your imagination, close your eyes and think of the possibilities that could change your immediate environment?
Set against a background of social judgement and trial by media,… Continue
