The daily "STRINGS '07" talks can be *distributed* to any website, via a compact Flash video player. I.e., "TV channel syndication" over other (related) physics websites during the conference. Increased exposure/reach for STRINGS '07.
Enhancement of the current video Content/Distribution model (single distribution point at STRINGS '07 website, downloadable video). iPod/iTunes is an additional distribution point, with unlimited potential:
1) iPods (mass-market media-player, 100 million & counting)
Science research-tool & public-outreach. Carrying "science videos in your pocket" has a viral-marketing effect.
2) AppleTV (living room set-top-box)
watching Science videos from comfort of your living room, Science research-tool or public-outreach
3) iPhone (debut on June 29, cellphone demographic is >> media-player demographic)
same as iPod, but possibly even greater reach/effect
Duke & Stanford are "on the curve", & already using 1) for teaching.
