    March 11, 2011-

    This morning, Luisa Dantas pitched an interactive media player concept idea to some folks at SXSW, in collaboration with NBPC and Mozilla’s Webmademovies.

    Three projects competed for the $5k grant, and Land of Opportunity was announced as the winner at 1pm Central time today, March 11, 2011.

    THANK YOU for all who voted!

    While our interactive player concept is still very much in the development phase, here are a few existing examples of attempts to make online video content more interactive:

    Our daily poison

    We are looking forward to developing our ideas further with our techie and educational partners and increasing the versatility of our work to reach as many people as possible!
