Intro: Active Archives

Starting point

  • Archiving as a form of reflection
  • Digital material thrives in distribution and reuse

Implications (for archivist, institution, artist):

  • Readiness to let go
  • Openness to receive reworked material

Background: Return to HyperText (1)

Ted Nelson: Everything is deeply intertwingled

Background: URL = API

An Open API (Application programming interface):

  • URL brings existing protocols together
  • You don't need permission to make a link

Bckground: Return to HyperText (2)

Background: The semantic web and the return of the REL

Semantic Web: The good parts:

  • Return to the qualities of HyperText
  • The document is once again central
  • Self-standing, linked documents are source

Background: New protocols

  • Linked data: RDF, SPARQL
PREFIX dc:<http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/>
PREFIX aa:<http://activearchives.org/terms/>
SELECT DISTINCT ?doc ?doctitle ?docdate ?docauthor ?o ?otitle
WHERE {
?doc <http://sarma.be/terms/person> ?o .
?doc dc:title ?doctitle.
?doc dc:date ?docdate.
?doc dc:creator ?docauthor.
?doc ?p <http://sarma.be/pages/Anthology_walk%2Btalk_Brussels/> .
OPTIONAL { ?o dc:title ?otitle }
}
ORDER BY ?doc

New ways to search:

  • SPARQL as a bridge from database to links (SQL for linked data)
  • Publically accessible endpoints and API's make federated search mogelijk
  • Stimulates connections betwen sites, databases, institutions

What's missing:

  • Editing tools to write with semantic links

Backgrond: Welcome Wiki!

  • Wiki means fast (the movement from reading to writing)
  • Making a link is easy (use CamelCase or some extra [[punctuation]])
  • New pages are made by referring to them in the flow of a text
  • Wikis follow the logic of the writer, not the database.

Tagging with links:

 [[Category: Composer]]
 [[Category: People born in in 1972]]

AA Video Wiki is a browser

Don't upload, just link:

  • Material is added via a URL
  • Multimedia material can be altered on the fly with filters
