This article describes out one student-produced multimedia broadcasting keeps a Washington community up to date on school news and activities. A young student recounts his first use of the Internet and video production to communicate with fellow classmates, teachers, other schools, the community, and even the world--whether it was designing a Web site for a semester project or broadcasting a daily newscast to the school on closed-circuit television. The latter example is where he was introduced to the world of technology and multimedia. The author describes the furthering of his experience with Internet and video production upon entering his freshman year at Olympia High School (OHS). Both the middle school and high school programs that this student engaged in provided daily program broadcasts upcoming events and highlights revolving around the school and local community. This helped students stay informed regarding their own extracurricular activities. The article also notes yet another example of the usefulness of streaming media on the Internet--training staff. Throughout his experiences, the author has discovered that anything is possible, and the simplicity of turning multimedia into streaming content means ingenuity is the only limiting factor.
