Have you ever tried to view your media on your computer through your television? You could either connect your computer to your TV, or use software designed to collect this media for you. Where can you get this software? Giovanni sent me the following email:

I have just published a study comparing 10 of the most prominent FLOSS Media Center projects, under a Creative Commons License. This might be useful for a lot of people to get state of the art information in this area, and know more about the beautiful Media centers in the free software community. It is available for download in English, Portugese, and Italian.

The Telematics Freedom Foundation was set up to bring in the age of telematics, Internet, mobile phones and the web, all those freedoms and rights that the Free Software Movement has already brought to PC users worldwide.
To achieve this purpose, we promote the consolidation and widespread adoption of models for development and deployment of telematic services which are under the full control of their users. We are also developing software for remote democratic organization, which will constitute a touchstone for the model of production, sharing and full control outlined by the idea of Telematics Freedom we are defending.

I didn’t even know all of these existed. And best of all, they’re all open-source. The differences between the programs is simply that they may access the media in a different way. Try them all out.

I am SO impressed with this. I would love to see this .PDF reside on the Internet on its own website one day in the future. Everything you can think of in the media-sphere resides on computers around the World. How else are you going to access your stuff?
