@johnb78 @NewtonMark @chrisjrn Having looked more closely, they’re actually utterly shit encodings of the videos, so I’m ashamed of myself.

via TweetDeck in reply to johnb78

@johnb78 @NewtonMark I was about to suggest good ol’ arsehattery, but maybe you’re right, and it’s a fan copy. The encoding is a bit shit.

@drspacejunk @expectproblems Indeed. How do you go with the Russians on that front?

via TweetDeck in reply to drspacejunk

@expectproblems @drspacejunk Produce by a US agency using taxpayer money, so under law it has to be public domain. God bless America.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

@expectproblems @drspacejunk BTW, you know that ALL of NASA’s audio is in the public domain? As are their images?

@expectproblems @drspacejunk Yep, that’s the one I was thinking of. Make sure these guys can actually fly these damn things.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

@expectproblems @drspacejunk Also, IIRC “rendezvous” doesn’t necessarily mean “docked”. Didn’t a pair of Gemini missions do that?

@piecritic I’ve never studied it, only taught it. I suspect that says something about both the media industry and teaching.

@piecritic Sadly, @JennaPrice is a traditionalist, and “Media, Mediation and Power” is less CTM and more, you know, Media Studies.

@NewtonMark Now there’s a thought. I really need an open space of some sort. Is Walsh Bay still derelict?

@NewtonMark True on both counts, and the dam is surrounded by trees. Still, it’s @R_Chirgwin’s properly, and he can explain it to the RFS.
