Writing about web page

So that I can help out and experiment with Steve’s video streaming experiments, I’ve got a lovely new webcam sitting on top of my monitor (it’s a Logitech Quickcam Ultra Vision).

So far the video streaming stuff is pretty cool, but as we don’t have a University-wide IM system (let alone one that supports video), we are left with the likes of MSN and Skype.

I’ve signed up to Skype now and tried one or two test calls so if anyone wants to try it out, trying calling me (username: kieranshaw)

This is all in preparation for giving my Dad a new webcam when I visit in South Africa next week (yay!) and try to get him to try it out over his not quite full broadband 3G connection they have at the house out there (it’ll probably be rubbish).

Steve’s video stuff will do a great job of allowing recording and video conferencing at set times or in a set chat room, but we don’t yet have an on-demand type solution (except to sign up for Skype or something). Perhaps we should allow people to list their Skype usernames in our email/phone book directories.
