in the Fly Utopia! workspace at Transmediale
*11:00 - 12:00 TamTam*
*TamTam* is a GNU/GPL collaborative web application developed by [mi2]'s
mi2lab. It is based on the concept of WikiWiki, but has many multimedia
features that are not a part of standard Wiki implementations & clones.
In more then 1 year of active use and development TamTam has proven
locally (serving over 50 projects the on mi2 server) to be the easiest
tool for online publishing and collaboration.
*12:00 - 13:00 Multimedia Institute/MAMA presentation*
*[mi2]*, abbreviated for Multimedia Institute (Zagreb, CROATIA), is a
Zagreb based NGO. We will present our public nexus - net.culture club
[mama], our production facility [mi2lab] and our numerous projects at
the interstice between new media, social issues and policy.
*13:00 - 14:00 EGOBOO.bits / iCommons / GNUSpectrum*
*EGOBOO.bits* is a digital publishing project & production collective
dealing with the free software development, sound production and media
theory. The lowest common denominator of the entire EGOBOO.bits
production is GNU General Public Licence, also known as copyleft. Music
published under these terms on the EGOBOO.bits label can be freely
distributed, used and modified by others as long as its derivates remain
under the same conditions.
*iCommons* is the Croatian implementation of Creative Commons licenses -
a set of licenses allowing creators to make their works available with
more free than the compulsory copyright license does.
*GNUSpectre* is haunting... GNUSpectre is a reader on the free software
movement and its philosophy. Through the selection of texts I wanted to
indicate that the GNU General Public License is a possible common
denominator for cultural production and that "licensed" production
carries a "revolutionary" potential.
19:00 - 20:00 *HighNoon* presentation (together with Candida TV)
Recently a diverse group of media activists, artists and programers
initiated project *HighNoon* which is set out to develop a new model
that would suite better for moving image. Agregation of video has
already been experimentaly established in recent months by v2v project
(http://www.v2v.cc), using free software, open formats and standards to
encode, store and syndicate production quality video in sustainable and
managable way. Further along this road we wanna develop methods and
models to fill these archives with quality content and make it available
for others to engage within this social, media and technical
development. By using free technologies, working on models of inclusion
and adressing social issues within so called "information society" we
are initiating HighNoon platform for delivery of this media through
networks to all connected. Being early in development stage we need your
support in submiting content, testing technology, commiting resources
and adopting standards we agree on. Join us as we build HighNoon.
