Pop quiz: Which of these artists needs a copyright lawyer?
The history of pop music is littered with accusations of artists ripping each other off, with the recent copyright ruling against Robin Thicke and Pharell Williams over their track Blurred Lines just the latest example. Listen to the songs below and rate how similar you think they are.
I’ve been looking for a simple way to stream lectures and presentations, something simple enough for the average novice to set up and run with on their own. Ustream and Livestream are a bit too complex for our purposes. Google Hangouts are simple enough, but webcams aren’t really up to the job, and I didn’t want to buy (and loan out) a lot of new high end cameras.
What I have tracked down is a Magewell USB3 to HDMI Capture dongle. You run the HMDI cable out of your camera into the dongle and the USB3 cable out into you computer. The computer sees the camcorder as a webcam. It’s not a dirt cheap solution ($450 AUD), but it’s small, doesn’t need any drivers installed or extra software, and I a lot of people already have HD cameras, all I have to do is loan out the dongle.

While Algorithmic Search has come a long way, the internet still presents people with a serious information overload. ZEEF is like a filter on top of Google. “
Here is the link to the search I did on Creative Commons images
It is listed by person so you see quite a bit of repetition. I think the way to go might be to pick the curator/expert who is most in tune with you and start with them.
