A Consuming Experience

Blogging, internet, software, mobile, telecomms, gadgets, technology, media and digital rights from the perspective of a consumer / user, including reviews, rants and random thoughts. Aimed at intelligent non-geeks, who are all too often unnecessarily disenfranchised by excessive use of tech jargon, this blog aims to be informative and practical without being patronising. With guides, tutorials, tips - and the occasional ever so slightly naughty observation.

BBC News through their Open News Archive are, for an 18-month trial period, piloting free downloads of audio and video covering nearly 80 iconic news stories or events of the past 50 years including the fall of the Berlin Wall, Tiananmen Square, London poll tax riots etc, under their Creative Archive licence - which means the content may also be shared, remixed etc for non-commercial purposes, but it's only available to UK residents (there are fuller details of the terms of the trial, an FAQ etc).

See the index of news clips, which are available in QuickTime, Windows Media, MPEG1 and MP3 formats.

(I've blogged about the BBC's Creative Archive before.)

Via Creative Archive news, who have also provided latest download figures for Creative Archive licensed content as at 13 December 2005.
