EngageMedia at the Open Video Conference

by Andrew April 29, 2010
EngageMedia was in attendance at the Open Video Conference in New York city on June 19-21.

EngageMedia coordinated two sessions. The first one looked at the nature of independent video sharing spaces in a YouTube world. This session brought together representatives from WITNESS, Citizen Shift, Pad.ma, VisionOnTV among others. The second session was a showcase of Drupal and Plone systems for sharing video.

The conference had a range of highlights including a great talk by Amy Goodman of Democracy Now that really dug into how important open video is in supporting social movements and social change, and a great live video interview with Peter Sunde of the Pirate Bay.
