What is Speak Freely TV?
Speak Freely TV is a platform which encourages people to record and publicly share videos of themselves conversing with others or speaking directly to the camera on topics they care deeply about from a place of authenticity and vulnerability.
I started the platform almost two weeks ago, so it's right in its infancy at the moment. Entering http://speakfreely.tv into any browser takes you to the Trending section of the #speakfreely-tv tag, so all someone has to do to participate is post a video on the Steem blockchain using that tag. The posts are then Upvoted and Resteemed by the @speakfreely-tv account to incentivize participation and maintain a historical record. Also, any videos posted on DTube are pinned on my personal IPFS Gateway to ensure they are never lost.
Currently I am the only one participating, though I hope to encourage many more people to get involved. All content I personally create (e.g. thumbnail templates, music, etc.) will eventually be hosted in a GitHub project for others to use if they like, but people are also welcome to develop their own styles.
By participating in the Sndbox Summer Camp program I hope to receive guidance and support from the more experienced Steem community. Some ideas for the longer term development of the project include a standalone website, expanded IPFS video storage with redundancy, and perhaps even a Smart Media Token (SMT). In the short term I will be focused on recording new videos, encouraging others to do the same and building visibility.
I invite you to check out the @speakfreely-tv feed to get a better sense for the type of content the platform is aimed at supporting.
