Open Video Conference, NYC JUNE 19-20, 2009

The Open Video Conference in NYC, June 19-20, 2009 should be a great event bringing together artists, activists, academics, tech types, and assorted culture jammers. It will be an opportunity to discuss issues around access, fair use, obstacles and vehicles to collaboration, decentralization, and democracy in the area on online video. Lots of cool speakers are lined up including: Clay Shirky (NYU), Yochai Benkler (Harvard’s Berkman Center), Ted Hope (Film producer, Adventureland, Brett Gaylor (RIP Manifesto), Lance Weiler (The Workbook Project), and Sam Gregory, Program Director of Witness.

On the Saturday morning of the conference (June 20), Lina Srivastava, Lotje Sodderland (Planet of Slums, a multi-authored web documentary in production), and myself will be leading a workshop on transmedia activism: how to use cross-media platforms in social activist campaigns.
