    Dear Dr. William McCarty,

    How various communication and cognitive theories will be utilized in the
    design of computer interfaces and how computers add a new level of visual
    representation to social discourse?

    Any feedback and references are welcome. Thank you.

    Arun Tripathi

    Nice to learn of broadcast and archiving in relation to a meeting of
    researchers and teachers engaged in humanities computing.

    Couple of questions for present experts and future experts in managing the
    logistics of technical recordings of proceedings:

    1) does audio only present less of a hurdle from the production and
    reception. I ask because it seems intutive that audio files take up
    less bandwidth than video plus audio and that it may be easier for the set
    up to dealon only with microphones and not microphones and cameras

    2) what factors influence the choice of format? I ask because some formats
    are not based on proprietary software and are therefore more easy to clip
    and embed as citations in electronic papers and more easy to cue with edit
    lines for retrieval purposes. Of course what may be gained in
    post-production ease may be lost in streaming capacity.

    It would be interesting to hear about projects that aim to test streaming
    technology applications in humanities-related settings.
