I am editing the video material from our Semantic Physical Science symposium, and the first is my introduction (http://vimeo.com/35169794, ca 10 mins). This is partly because it’s short (so less technical hassle – though more editing) and partly because I can give myself permission, while I am still waiting for other speakers to give the OK. [All talks WILL be mounted, and all will be Open Knowledge Definition compliant (CC-BY 3.0, Creative Commons Attribution). This means that anyone can do anything with them, including cutting snippets and re-using them. Even (especially) for political purposes.] Here M.I.T.-bear strikes a blow for freedom (about 8 mins into the video)
NOTE: There are a few frame drops, interestingly on the titles. Maybe a more consistent background will help. (You haven’t missed anything)
My video is complex because it contains
- Hello Participants and Hello World
- The purpose of the symposium – to hand over 15 years of work to the world scientific community in an Open Manner
- Tribute to my colleagues and funders
- Context of semantic science
- Political barriers to be overcome (ca 8:00 mins into video). Here M.I.T-bear strikes a blow for freedom against RWA/HR3699. Also PMR expresses his views on the proposed legislation.
Here are some of the links I mention – it’s easier to follow them here
and here is the programme. I am intending we post all of these, but it’s a lot of time experimenting with video conversion.
