Last week, Prince George and Carlos Danger stepped aside just long enough for D.C. Vito, The LAMP’s Executive Director, to talk with NBC 4 New York. The Chocolate Project, Digital Career Path and our work in NYC schools all were highlighted in this live segment with host Erika Tarantal. Check it out!

Testing the Media Breaker

It’s been years in the making, but the Media Breaker has finally moved into the testing phase. Twenty-two high school students have been test-driving the tool, breaking down commercials with the first ever online video editor designed for remixing third-party content. The feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive, and the students have given us some great pointers for how we can improve the Breaker even more. Over the next couple of months, we’ll be rolling out more testing in New York, Chicago, Pittsburgh and Boston. Click here to join the Media Breaker mailing list for updates and news about the fall launch, and let us know if you want to be part of the next testing phase!
