    Open Video Conference, October 1-2 in NYC – early bird registration ends Aug 4 

    Open Video Conference

    This October 1 & 2, Open Video Alliance will present the second annual Open Video Conference in New York City. While the OVA focuses on creating and promoting free and open technologies, policies, and practices in online video, the conference embodies the important need for discussion which transcends online video and grapples with the larger questions of mass media, participatory culture, and the state of freedom and openness online.

    Last year’s conference featured talks by thinkers and activists like Jonathan Zittrain, Yochai Benkler, Josh Silver of Free Press, Mark Surman of Mozilla, and legendary hacker DVD Jon—as well as artists and filmmakers like Eyebeam, Eclectic Method, and Ted Hope.

    This year’s line up is set to be just as diverse, stimulating, and informative, featuring speakers like telecommunications scholar Tim Wu (who first coined the term “net neutrality”), former Obama adviser Susan Crawford, cultural anthropologist Michael Wesch, and lead singer/guitarist Damian Kulash of the band OK Go.

    OVC is two days of talks, workshops, panels, and film screenings on technology, business, law, education, and the future of storytelling.

On Apr 22 2010 four NYU students briefed ISOC-NY on their response to Moglen’s challenge – diaspora – a “privacy aware, personally controlled, do-it-all distributed open source social network”. The project went live on kickstarter the next day.
