TVJersey is a great idea

This is one of those ideas that I wish I’d launched myself: TVJersey (via Mindy McAdams).

It’s all about coming in at the low end with easily available tools and seeing how it works. The CMS is MoveableType, the video player is YouTube, but no word on the video equipment, except that they’re automatically snarfing UGC from YouTube. And that TVJersey-tagged feed is maybe the most brilliant and original idea — other newspapers have consumed YouTube feeds via tags, but this is the first time I know of a newspaper site advertising a specific tag word for CitJ producers to use so the content appears on the site.

One thought on “TVJersey is a great idea

  1. Howard,

    Thanks for the kind words. We’re very excited about the whole thing, obviously, and we’re hoping our friends and neighbors here in New Jersey will value it as a place to post, and to watch, videos about our state.

    No equipment to speak of, except for the cameras our folks use when they’re out shooting. But of course we don’t want this to be about *our* videos. We’re hoping other people’s stuff overwhelms ours in short order.

    Please stop by from time to time and let us know what we can improve.

    Cheers,
    John (one of the TVJersey crew)
