The intellectual (and video) capital we create in digital media for any project or subject is dynamic and organic, ever evolving into new platforms: from video, we derive transcripts from which interactive websites, books, digital libraries of shorter modules, educational curricula, and localized issue-based town hall meetings are lated produced.
