From other sessions....

One thing that I noticed most during the presentation sessions was that a lot of the groups 'hadn't got online yet' or 'we are here to find out more about getting (video) online'.

There are a number of issues to look at in this situation.

1. Access to politically safe, financially viable server hardware.

LabourNet (yuki) and Media Culture Action (dongwon) both gave support to the idea. Japan and Korea are both countries that can host servers.

2. Access to nerds that can do initial set ups, backups, systems administration.

the transmission network can not only provide these services, but could also make on the ground missions to skill up local techies to administer their own sites.

3. A look into teh ideas of community video and putting these videos online, as mentioned this morning by mien. ie, rights to privacy for communities etc

4. Future training on point 2, to decrease the requirement of non native nerds.

potential recipients atm:

  • Pekka (indonesia)
  • video communitas (komang, indonesia)
