Thanks to Tom Murphy for the tip off about Friction.TV. The idea is that you upload your video giving your opinion on a particular issue and then invite debate and contributions. Topic areas include politics, education, environment, business, health, society, local issues and sport.
Some interesting submissions so far including Boris Johnson MP, Alan Duncan MP, Tommy Sheridan and Jim Reeves of the Communication Workers Union.
It’s still very new but it already has submissions from several campaigns including Save the Children, Child Poverty Action Group, League Against Cruel Sports and Save the Post Office Network.
The one slight downside for me is that the site doesn’t have any of the essential legal information. For example you can’t find the company name or physical address. You can work out it appears to be in London, but that’s it.
Once the legal hiccup is sorted out then I’ve definitely got some ideas how I can use Friction.TV.
