Economies of the Commons 2 (Notes)
What's wrong with the status quo?
1. Proprietary (Real) 2. Disconnected (YouTube) 3. Engagement (YouTube Comments)
Popcorn example -- demo of a movie that's different each time.
! Show KWF as example of augmented video, context, authoring
On-Demand The clip is the limit
Video tag as Image Tag ! Talk more specifics: Include videos from external URL (without API/permission), standardized event model / scripting API, on the fly seeking (without special server software) WebM+H264 chart with browsers (nice)
Movement away from single provider (Idea to be the best provider, ipv the only provider) (source??)
Life cycle of open-licensed media
shows Universal Subtitles / PCF as "most real world" example of the ideas
! Show search result example (material?? maybe)
Open Video Alliance: Whitepaper Video for Wikipedia and the Open Web (Peter Kaufman)
Example of Human Property / Slavery Question of balancing property rights / laws
! SRT as coming from fan culture (examples of fan subs?)
Book ripper, DVD ripper, Download Helper, P2P/Torrents
Example of Eyes on the Prize, Click-through to licensing information as alternative to the End-Roll Credits.
Stevie Wonder clip from PBS 13 -- link through to the "Music Cue Sheet" of the program.
! AA, browser -- as integration with web workflows (capturing ephemeral documents)
! What is Open Data / Responsibility of a Public Institution
Example of running Screenplay pages through Google Mail as an example of seeing potential advertisers (as a kind of meta data).
Example of a tagged Orlando.
! Show example of SRT ! Example with TransLearning, search ??
Jaime King (VODO)
Experience of Steal this Film -- piggybacking on torrents / pirate sites -- appearance next to "Spiderman" or whatever.
formula: CwA+RtB (connect with audience + reason to buy) (source ?)
Pioneer One (dramatic series) Peer Paradigm
- Example of BitTorrent means of "socialising distribution"
- crowdfunding (sometimes it works, sometimes not)
- crowdsourcing attention ()
! show TransLearning as example (idea of eventually generating documentary / material) ? Allow Later contact with users to set licensing... (?)
! maybe problematic to show KWF/TL => material is NOT open licensed... DO NOT SHOW! ! LGM needs to be shown
> Connections to FaceBook / Twitter / evt BlogSnippets (?!)
Example of the studio visit; idea of vicarious experience / sharing of creative process
Dolf Veenvliet (Blender)
Blender users -- engaged users Power of Big Buck Bunny / Elephant's Dream as demo material (supposedly used )
Distribution of models as self-promotion <!> In their experience: the use of a blog during the production process increases audience involvement -- return to follow process -- and eventual DVD sales
Movement to stock models
Kickstarter, Indy GoGo (examples of local, NL crowd sourcing)
XS4all giving free rackspace
(ability to download from youtube ??)
Dutch Film Funds example -- need to have an all Dutch credits (fought for American director)
! Wikipedia quote of "Simplest possible database" ! AA aim for similar simplicity / radical modularity / flatness
html5video.org globallives.org ==> day in the life
! Demo of going beyong subtitles => Extension into the web...
Example of using Universal Subtitles as an editor. Swarm Player
! Videogrep useful in terms of radical de-centralization / pipeline ! Dusan!
! Introduce myself as a developer
Metavid: Example of Semantic Media Wiki queries as generator of RSS feeds. Firefogg
>> need to ask about this: Video Sequencing system!
Wikimedia Commons: Sequencer (using SMIL) Idea to publish an embeddable clips into Articles.
Apparent problem in getting the project started -- where is the need coming from -- who needs this tool?
"Neutral point of view" is maybe getting in the way? Paul Keller: Mave the frame of Wikipedia isn't so condusive to experimentation / use
! AA Working method: Working sessions / Cross-disciplinary: The Kitchen table conference / as a way of breaking open the process ! How to involve amateur-programmers! / edge designers / choreographers...
> tap into the experience of others in thinking about timed text / ...
Frans Ward (surfnet)
classical backend / frontend split surfmedia portal
media mosa -- open source platform for media distribution control over viewing... transcoding
usage: teleblik, leraar24, rest protocol
! Idea of RDFa putting the database INTO the page -- the webpage is your interface
DC/QDC IEEE LOM Learning Ojbect Metadata CZP Content zoek profile mediamosa.org
! AA as a tool for understanding / managing / getting a grip on technical aspects of videos as well.
Bram Tullemans (NPO)
Their definition of quality as parity with commercial software (missing the point?)
! embracing of "amateur" nature of free software
Gap of functionality
"Problems of OSS"
> Hard to find companies that will support OSS with clear Service Level Agreements. (only looking for large scale) (LOOK HARDER -- THEY ARE THERE!) > Development Most of the time lots of tailor made programming is needed (THAT'S THE STRENGTH!) > Communities A lot of OSS development communities dissolve
(Very telling in that each point has a clear corresponding limitation in the commercial world, )
Afternoon Session: HTML5
@huskyr ?? slides on git (nice)
wikilovesmonuments.nl openbeelden.nl? wmnl.nl
vpro > uses couch (how?!)
Advantages of HTML5:
- First class citizen
(nice example of jquery rotation of a p, a img, video
List of reasons (would add easy inclusion of remote URLs -- ability to juxtapose videos from multiple sources)
VPRO chose to use html5 as standard interface. jquery.htmlplayer with various kinds of canvases

! Subtitles examples >> Videogrep
End of the day discussion with Jeff Ubois -- Personal Archive -- reminder of how AA is about:
- Text as interface
- Software is not the main focus of output
<!> Engagment with end users a key component
For Eurpeana, the real problem: How do we sustain digitization and rights issues?
> The question of "orphan work"

! find example: MDT (Massachusetts Department of Transportation) experimentation video showing how derivative works can be made
? worry of misunderstanding of misuse
Question of NPOV: in video (no good answer)
Where's the money?
The main preoccuation is sustainablity that is to saw avoid predatory use of the old and new digital commons.
Maybe an example of too literal take of Open Source to Open Data, notion of a centralized repository perhaps outmoded) -- more interesting to think of as an index (maybe ultimately the difference is hidden on the surface)
Reminder of the materiality of the digital.
Gives the example of a single bit destroying an image (JPEG) -- later returned to by Birte as the need to redundancy (the JPEG is stripped of all redundancy)
Question of what it is we want to preserve?

LOCKSS (lots of copies keeps stuff safe)
Concern about Public-Private partnerships (disturbing trend in private companies doing digitisation for organisations with then a 20 year exclusive agreements, (stipulations like no commercial use for the organisation, or no use outside the national borders). Google books.
