Hi Yasmeen,

Here are the two movies I got from Tim / Olympia Forest Sciences Lab.

“Multimedia” is something Tiffany and I requested as possible content.

I am not entirely sure we will use the videos on the Web site;

However, they might prove interesting / compelling content for Flickr / USDA FS R&D Facebook.

There surely has to be a better way to link the videos to descriptive medata;

For now, I have created a basic “metadata” text file for each video; I suspect there are more “elegant” ways to do this.

For the time being, that “metadata” is simply the verbatim text provided to me from the researcher to me at the time I got the video. Hopefully there is a better way to preserve metadata “behind the scenes” – one of the major reasons flickr appeals to me is the site’s built-in metadata management for captions, locations, camera, copyright info, etc.
