BC$ was officially offered a place to speak at the CNSR 2008 Conference on Communication Networks and Services Research to be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia from May 5th-8th at the Lord Nelson Hotel (details).

This means that we will be able to proposition some leading Academics in the fields of Networking, Services and other areas of Computer Science to get behind the research already going into BC$ as a platform for Online Video Recommendation Services.

In order to be selected, a paper entitled “The Semantics of MobileTV” was submitted in the 11th hour, just in time to be reviewed by the (extended) deadline on December 21st, 2007.
(UPDATED 2008-08-01: to add link to my first ever IEEE Publication)

We consider this a small, but necessary victory in the realization of BC$’s vision for an open, trust-based approach to online video recommendation.

NOW THE REAL WORK STARTS!!! Read the rest of this entry »

BC$ = Behavior, Content, Money

The goal of the BC$ project is to raise awareness and make changes with respect to the three pillars of information freedom - Behavior (pursuit of interests and passions), Content (sharing/exchanging ideas in various formats), Money (fairness and accessibility) - bringing to light the fact that:

1. We regularly hand over our browser histories, search histories and daily online activities to companies that want our money, or, to benefit from our use of their services with lucrative ad deals or sales of personal information.

2. We create and/or consume interesting content on their services, but we aren't adequately rewarded for our creative efforts or loyalty.

3. We pay money to be connected online (and possibly also over mobile), yet we lose both time and money by allowing companies to market to us with unsolicited advertisements, irrelevant product offers and unfairly structured service pricing plans.
