The Kendra Initiative

Sunday, January 6, 2008
I don't know whether this is errie, amazing, or just a glimpse of what is to come in the future. Stumbled onto this blog post by sheer luck ....


What is it: Kendra Initiative - fostering open market space for digital media

Heard about frustrated users ... and content owners?
Good news: Somebody is exploring this!

Kendra Initiative: Kendra Initiative is an international media, technology, academic and industry alliance. The mission is to foster an open distributed marketplace for digital media (including films, music, images, games and text). The initiative researches, recommends and develops enhancements to the digital media marketplace that facilitate interoperability between and revenue generation for content owners and service providers; to enable consumers to use any device or application to browse, search and purchase content from any content catalogue, seamlessly. The cross-industry stakeholder group is currently investigating content description, search, visibility, discovery, delivery and payment whilst developing and trialling prototypes and promoting support.

Is it scary that I studied these issues in my Sociology of Media classes? And is it even scarier that I wrote a paper along these lines?

You should contact them and say "Hi! My name is Kendra" and see what they say!
