Zooming Group

January 26, 2009

There’s a lot of interest in zooming these days, lots of different projects and experiments around the world, but the community still feels really scattered. In the hopes of creating a space where we can all come together, exchange ideas, and collaborate, I’ve started a zooming group on GROU.PS. Check it out, add some info, let me know what you think!

  1. Hello,

    I am interested in locating prior art to U.S. Patent No. 7,139,983 (specifically claims 1 and 3).

    http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=7139983.PN.&OS=PN/7139983&RS=PN/7139983

    The basic idea being claimed appears to be a zoomable user interface where one can zoom into or out from objects associated with “selectable media items.” Dependant claim 3 requires the selectable media items to be associated with at least one of: broadcast information, television networks, pay per view programs, video on demand programs, locally recorded video, television channels, television programs, and service providers. The critical date is April 9, 2001. I would appreciate any information you can find.

    thanks,
    Chris


  2. Chris,

    I don’t have an answer for you, but it might be worth posting your question to the zooming group; I realize it’s small now, but you never know who might stop by.
