VideoANT A recent request came up for access to the raw text that gets entered into a projects annotations. I have developed a number of primitive tools over the past year that I have been using for internal purposes. In light of this request I am releasing these pages to the public for your own consumption as they cannot be used to edit your content but are simple ways to gain access to the content you develop. Keep in mind they are nothing fancy aesthetically, but are quite functional in nature :) I recommend that faculty utilize this first page to extract the raw data entered into the system as a back-up should it be necessary.

Introducing Hightail Spaces Today I am excited to announce the beta release of Hightail Spaces, a new service that aims to solve the problem of creative collaboration. We’ve created a uniquely visual way for designers, photographers, video producers, marketers and other creative professionals to share work and get feedback from clients, managers and colleagues. We really want you to try it out at www.hightailspaces.com and tell us what you think. Hightail Spaces is the first step in our mission to completely rethink creative collaboration, which we define as what happens when creative professionals and stakeholders take a project from concept to completion, via multiple rounds of iteration and feedback. Currently, too many stages of this process are still stuck in email, a tool ill-equipped to deal with the inherent messiness of creativity. That initial flash of inspiration, the rounds of critical feedback that shape an idea, the new insight that changes everything — none of that belongs in your linear inbox.
