Wherein Scoble meets Koci.
“Hello folks! Yes, you heard it right! Interactive Narratives have joined forces with ONA. We’ll be relaunching soon and we’ll be taking it to the level it should have been in the first place… a place where you can truly learn and exchange.”
Check out what Koci put together with a beta tool from Vuvox.com. Interactive package with multiple slideshows and other elements — if it’s as wysiwyg as their other tools, this is killer.
I’ve been repeating versions of this on recent training rounds when folks ask about learning Flash, so I thought I’d post it here for reference and credit purposes…

“Soundslides or Flash? Put it this way, if you don’t know what Soundslides is, then there’s no need to even think about Flash. And if you haven’t mastered Soundslides (meaning, brought someone to tears with your two minute Soundslide) there there is no reason to be thinking about Flash.”

Al talks with the NYT crew about the sick, sick video/transcript debate mashup. A bit labor intensive to deal with all the timecoding, but this builds on the idea of mining the data in political speeches, as they’ve done with the SOTU.
Melissa has an awesome summary of a training session on training reporters to report and edit for multimedia.
