We're southbound this morning, heading to SXSW Interactive, where we'll be conducting a little experiment on a wiki on behalf of Eastwick client Ruckus Wireless. Objective: we're tapping the wisdom of crowds at Heather Gold's "open source management" seminar, Tuesday March 14. We're hoping to round up some of the best minds in interactive media to help us develop this baby wiki into something that will help to organize the rather fragmented market for IPTV in the U.S. Ambitious? Yes. Impractical? Yes. But we're giving it a shot anyway, and looking forward to your support (you don't need to be at SXSW to contribute to the baby wiki -- it's already open to the public).
Another reason that SXSW Interactive makes a good spot for this experiment: all the indie filmmakers next door, many of which we are certain are wondering when IPTV really coming. Our take: there's no place like home for indie film distribution.
