this is very nice work, what David's done is get a QuickTime movie to
read a RSS feed from a server on the basis of what a user asks in the
movie. I'm not sure if it is what yoiu'd call a movie but it's a great
demo of what QuickTime can actually do, and points the way to the sorts
of things than can be built: a movie that reads data and assembles a
movie on that basis.
