FLOSS Manuals will hold Book Sprint
(http://www.flossmanuals.net/booksprints) about Ogg Theora. We
will write a really good manual (book) about Ogg Theora in 5 days. The
event will be in Berlin.
We want to cover a lot of stuff, but we hope to get our teeth into at
least some of the following :
-what is theora?
-why do you want it?
-tss (theora streaming studio)
-commandline ffmpeg2theora, dvgrab, oggfwd
-cli embedding of subtitles in ogg
-web based subtitle replay with jquery.srt
We are keen to get anyone to the sprint that wants to come. There is
some limited travel funds, probably not enough to get anyone from nz,
but just in case there is anyone nearby that wants to attend then please
let me know! :)

hi all, following last weekends excellent symposium, and as a way, in
particular, of developing the networked discussion around the digital
and materiality theme – I've put some blog comments up at
<http://adasymposium09.wordpress.com/> hopefully to prompt some further
discourse. There were some provocative left-of-field ideas thrown
around during the networked chat, which the following morning's
discussion threw light on, but there's more to explore yet, and I for
one am keen to continue the dialogue if anyones up for it. And if not,
no worries, life is aknocking.
take care, Phil
hello ADA (with apologies for cross posting),
a new initiative which may interest some of you is a recently forged New
Zealand connection to the international radio art initiative, Radia :
"Radia is a network of independent radio stations who have a common interest
in promoting and producing artworks for the radio, and in forming related
projects based on broadcasting and cultural exchange. We produce a weekly
radio show that is broadcast by each of the member radio stations. Our shows
represent the local artistic community of each station, whilst at the same
time these new works point to an emergent collective notion of
self-determined art for radio"
Physically based in Dunedin at bNet station Radio One, the shows will be
managed and presented by Sally Ann McIntyre and Gilbert May with assistance
from Sean Norling, and are due to begin broadcasting in a new slot from 9 -
9:30 pm on the 19th of July, and every Sunday thereafter, with the first New
Zealand contribution to the network scheduled for late August.
Shows made by member stations are played across the network. A list of
member stations can be found in the sidebar of the Radia website, and
includes radios in Lisbon, London, Brussels, Vienna, Marseille and New York.
Normally, when each member radio station in the Radia network commissions
an artist from their local artistic community, that artist is
given carte blanche for producing a show. In that sense, Radia uses radio as
a gallery for the curation of sound art pieces.
As in other communities connected to Radia, this will become a valuable
opportunity for New Zealand sound and radio practitioners both to make new
work and to participate, on their own terms, in an established international
network of listeners and producers.
Our aim is to contribute to the ongoing development of radio as an artform
in New Zealand, by providing a critical and stimulating framework for sound
work, and a peer-based context within a distributed, non-heirachical and
established international network that is well versed in the creative
possibilities around treating radio as a kind of artist run space.
