MIT's Technology Review taped a video interview with Avi Muchnick, the founder of NYC-based start-up Aviary, developer of collaborative cloud multimedia editing software. The free Web-based software allows users to edit images and sounds, tweaking photographs or composing complex musical arrangements.
Since all user data is stored in the cloud, users can share both finished work and individual elements that went into the work. Aviary keeps track of how elements are used, making sure licenses and credits are preserved. The ultimate goal: to create a marketplace for users' work.
