Scope and content

File consists of two copies of the agenda for the summit, held August 18-21, 2000. The program description reads: "The Banff Super Conductor was an international event. It's a twenty-first century mantra: the pipes are hungry for content. This strategy session brought together multimedia producers, communications industries reps, formal and informal networks, researchers, funding agencies, broadcasters, artists' networks, and ecommerce gurus. They explored new creative and production alliances, with the hopes of developing concrete strategies for the creation of rich networked content, with a special focus on learning and creativity. The Super Conductor asked the questions: How can we build for different delivery platforms? How can we work with synchronous and asynchronous experiences? How can we re-purpose linear media into interactive? What services, interfaces and navigation tools do users need? How can we promote web literacy? Building on the 1999 Educational Multimedia Strategy and Navigating Intelligence tool session, this session looked at using creative models to communicate with larger publics.

This event was a part of The Banff New Media Institute’s Human Centered Interface Project. The research initiative was made possible through the support of Alberta Science and Research Authority, Research Development Initiative, Out of the Box, SSHRC, in association with Telefilm Canada, sgi Canada, Montage, Silicon Valley North, Canada Council for the Arts and other partners."
