Vx:meeting in Amsterdam 18, 19, 20th Jan 2008


VX:mission will look at how distribution of Social Justice Video is
happening using Free and Open Source technology. It is a chance to find
out about existing distribution projects, get feedback for your own
projects or ideas, find collaborators and scheme about how best to
distribute your video. This is event is associated with the transmission
network. For more info check the Transmission Vx:mission page :

This will happen with 3 days of events. A Show with films, info and
discussion on Friday 18th Jan, A day of Geek central hacklab work on the
19th, and a day of public workshops on Sunday 20th Jan. The kinds of
things we’ll discuss and work on are...

* Open source Video Content Management and transcoding systems
* Translations and Subtitling tools
* Help files and Documentation to help people get involved
* Video Distribution Strategy

This gathering is planned in a association with FlossManuals .net and
clearerchannel.org. It has a focus on how we can better document
projects and user orientated help.
The Amsterdam meeting coincides with the Video Vortex Conference :

Don’t help the hoarders ! Information wants to be FREE !

VX:mission :

A night of films and ideas from the world of radical social justice
video. VX:mission is a working gathering of video activist and open
software technology hackers. We are working together to increase the
noise of social justice video on the internet and the digital pirate
airwaves. Join us on this night as we bring you videos, news from the
digital underground and a plan to save us from the corporate digital
vaccuum cleaners like YouTube.
