2011Dear Colleague:The Rules Committee has identified several new and innovative Internet-basedtechnologies to help Members better carry out their official duties. We are pleased to announcethe following five new services:
Real-time video webcasting
of
official events in a Senator's home state.
A number
of
offices have expressed interest in real-time video webcasting.Among the available options, the Committee has negotiated an agreement withUStream, an online video streaming provider, to offer advertising-free videowebcasting to Senate offices for a fee. The agreement with UStream stipulatesthe non-profit rate for Senate offices and ensures that no external commercialadvertisements will be shown on the site. The UStream video webcasting can bepaid for with official funds. For more information, please contact the Senate'sUStream liaison, Chris Melehan, atcmelehan@ustream.tv,or at 408-398-0044.
Enhanced, Internet-based tools to display large, non-confidential documents.
The Rules Committee has reached an agreement with Scribd.com foradvertising-free Scribd sites for Members and Committees. Scribd is especiallyuseful for viewing and sharing very large documents that are not confidential,such as those intended for public access. As a free, web-based documentsharing and display tool, Scribd allows users to take a document in any format(Word, Adobe, PowerPoint)-upload it-and view it or share it on anycomputer or web-enabled mobile device without any additional programs orequipment.
It
has enhanced search functions on longer documents, andtransforms any document into a web document that's discoverable throughsearch engines, and can be shared on social networks.Offices wishing toexecute an agreement with Scribd, and set up an official Scribd site can consultthe primer, which appears athttp://www.scribd.com/scribd101.The Senate'sScribd liaison is Robert Macdonald, and he can be reached atrob@scribd.com,or at 917-647-3770.
Secure intra-office sharing and archiving
of
documents.
The Rules Committee and Sergeant-at-Arms have approved the use
of
SharePoint, a multi-purpose platform for document management and intranetportals, and are now making it available to all offices. Microsoft SharePointallows users to create and manage documents, publish Access databases on theintranet portal, and centrally store and manage documents and favorite links.
