      We've learned that there need to be many different implementations of all
      these technologies. The more the merrier, and the chance one will survive,
      software darwinism, etc.

      This is also an idea that Brewster Kahle (http://www.archive.org/) is
      immensely interested in. SMIL actually has all the syntax for such a thing;
      (doing client-side on-the-fly mixing of server-side-stored movies); however,
      real and quicktime have only implemented rudimentary support for SMIL enough
      to insert interstitial ads.

      Brewster has a ton of bandwidth and storage and would welcome any volunteers
      who want to put together such client software. The same system would work
      for centralized and p2p media sources- it's mostly client side fetch and
      scheduling, reassembly. A fairly solved problem.

      Conference calls are broadcast.
      Real-time events are broadcast.
      Weblogs are broadcast.

      I really like the broadcast metaphor, even tangible broadcast.
      Don't get rid of it.
      Shared temporal interaction doesn't have to be bad.
