Live Video From Parliment
Seen at todbits.com, the Feds are streaming live video feeds from the House of Commons and other meetings: parlvu.parl.gc.ca. Choices of various streaming rates, audio only, and language (English/French).
I think this kind of initiative is great, but having access is really only the first piece. I don't have the time or energy to stay on top of the raw feeds.
What I'd really like is this combined with a kick ass indexing system! Archiving these and combining with written transcripts would be very cool; keyword search to find the content of interest then the ability to jump straight to it. Better yet, a way of registering interest in particular keywords like anything involving my MP or a particular subject and getting a list of those clips.
My wish list aside, kudos to those responsible. I think this a good thing.
