Ravensbourne’s Copyright vs Community videos on Archive.org


I have finally put the copyright vs community videos from May 2004 on Archive.org under a creative commons licence. These go with the audio versions I added a while. I have to say a big sorry to Fravia because our 2nd DV Cam kept auto switching off because we were recording over firewire not on to DV Tape. The rest of the Videos are not effected because we were able to change the camera placements after Fravia's talk. I'm hoping to upload his first lecture in 2003 to make up for this mistake. Anyway, apologies over here are the videos which as of 0120 GMT are not available but
Verification and derivations have been completed. Now waiting for a curator to approve the recordings.

Copyright vs Community: with Fravia
Copyright vs Community: in the age of computer networks by Richard M Stallman
Copyright vs Community: with Cory Doctorow

While searching around, I also found Tom's notes on the same lectures. The certainly complete, corydoctorow and richardstallman in plain text.
This also serves as a very good time to remind myself to change the cubicgarden.com/copyright site.

Update about Cory Doctorow's lecture video. I sent a email to Cory a while ago when I first posted the videos up, and just had a look at the video and saw the batting average is at 34.11% with 411 downloads since 4 days ago. So I had a look around the blogosphere and saw who was talking about it. Results from blogdigger by link, Technorati by links to the BoingBoing post. Some highlights of what I've found. Corante's Donna Wentworth picked up on it for Copyfight, which I read all the time but somehow missed. Weird how people are just copying the text directly, keep seeing thanks Ian! which freaks me out a little… shame its not linking directly to this post…

iTunes to ipaq

WiFiTunes in action

I'm still not very happy with using iTunes but with the DAAP support and Winamp coming to a slow end I'm forced to use it. I thought it was pretty cool that the xbox media centre supported DAAP, but hot on the heals of that comes WiFiTunes which is still in alpha but is GPL'ed. Yes it doesnt support AAC but I would never encode my stuff as AAC, but I can understand why this would put some people off who have whole playlists of AAC's. Its a real shame I cant use it at work because the Wifi is locked down. Oh link came from pocketpcthoughts. I did some experimenting in the office today with Toms Mac laptop, and it works quite well. Theres little controls, so once its playing its playing and so you cant jump around the music file yet! But it will play all the playlists no problem (even recently played and top rated) and the delay in connecting is small, like 5secs maximum over 802.11b. One thing we did discover, is the wifitunes doesnt seem to register as a user, so if you shutdown itunes you dont get the usual prompt asking if you want to boot other users off. Still very usable for a alpha.

It certainly beats using a streaming server setup to listen to music or podcasts in the bathroom without copying the file to SD first. Talking of which, My house is fully FM tuned using the iTrip style FM Transmiters which I believe are still not available in the UK. My main problem is the signal doesnt reach past the kitchen which is a bit of a pain. Anyway, I hooked it all up so I can now listen to something on the FM signal and choose another thing in the living room. Real multiple room audio, so Sarah can listen to the hits of the 80's in the bedroom or/and kitchen while I enjoy the sounds of Armin Van Buuren. 88.5 if you ever go past my house and are interested in what we may be liistening to…
