Meta-CC seeks to create an open forum for realtime discussion, commentary, and cross-referncing of electronic news and televised media. By combining strategies employed in web-based discussion forums, blogs , tele-text subtitling, on demand video streaming, and search engines, the open captioning format employed by Meta-CC will allow users to gain multiple perspectives and resources engaging current events. The Fox News Channel in the U.S. will be archived as our initial source material, but the system we are devleoping is adaptable for use with any cable news or television network.

Meta-CC Progress Report
January 7, 2005 - the innerweb of conglomco

Meta-cc is in its final phases of testing and integration. Conglomco estimates a full launch of the Meta-cc engine by mid-January/early February 2005. Currently we have a fully functioning searchable rss-cache, a user editable keyword database, and have tested alternate methods of streaming video.

In preparation for the site launch, we would like to invite early adopters to participate by adding to our database their blogs, the blogs of those they admire/despise, and keywords they feel appropriate to properly parse the murky waters of cable news.

Interested parties should contact one of the principles from the contacts page.



The Meta(CC) engine was launched in response to the final 2004 presidential debate--Oct. 13th, at the Rodan A/V lounge, Chicago, for the opening of the Select Media 3 Festival.

Meta-CC is a work in progress. If you would like to be notified about additions and updates to the site, and receive an alert about our initial launch at the end of October 2004, please join our mailing list by sending an email to
