The purpose of this new endeavour by MoCA is to establish a place where visitors can watch, deposit or comment on videos that best illustrate real world concerns of consumers when it comes to their digital entertainment lifestyle. The first videos available for viewing are interviews of attendees at the recently concluded Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
The name of the site, ConnectMyStuff, was purposely chosen because that’s what people want to do. It is strictly video-based, with room for commentary and feedback, in line with how people are viewing and gathering information in a social media context. The site is consumer friendly, real world and devoid of the industry jargon and propaganda that permeates other technology-related sites.
Access to the site is available to everyone.
In addition, MoCA is interested in posting videos from other consortiums and individuals. The three basic criteria for submission are;
- No overt commercialism or sponsorship;
- Must be in sync and keeping with the nature and theme of the subject matter;
- Must contribute to the body of knowledge via a true and definable value proposition.
