My newest IndieWeb desire: The ability to watch and simultaneously screencapture, gif-ify, and otherwise live note a movie with commentary and quotes on my website (roughly in real time without distracting from it too much) the way Bix has done with The Desk Set on Twitter. I’d love to do it as a running collection perhaps. Maybe not too dis-similarly to the way that ThreadReader app presents it.

Do any television sets do automated screencaptures or gifs yet? And can anyone post from a television set to their website? Where is the micropub client for that? I want to see movie reviews like this. Film Threat perhaps?

Marty’s app Kapowski is maybe a start for this? I used to have a DVD tool on my computer that would do screencaptures relatively easy, but who has those anymore? Anyone else have ideas?
