Dictionary of War in Novi Sad: Video recordings ready for downloading
A week after the fifth edition of DICTIONARY OF WAR, held on January 25. and 26. 2008 in Novi Sad, video recordings of all 25 concepts are available for download at: http://dictionaryofwar.org/en-dict/v2v
25 new concepts on the issue of a war presented in alphabet order during two days event in Novi Sad are now available to the bigger audience. Video recordings from the fifth DICTIONARY OF WAR have joined already existing, unique topic-based multimedia archive of 100 concepts, which have been presented during four previous events by artists, filmmakers, scientists and researchers. Loosely based on the slogan: “At least, when we create concepts, we are doing something” DICTIONARY OF WAR is a collaborative platform for creating concepts.
The entire video documentation is realized on the basis of Open Source technology and open content distribution. This is to guarantee true cross platform compatibility and a maximum of sustainability and accessibility rather than promoting proprietary video formats that run only on certain operating systems and are designed in order to exclude those who use competitive products let alone Free and Open Source software. Video files of the DICTIONARY OF WAR are shared by thousands of users worldwide who download the material for educational or research purposes and remix it in various new contexts.
Detailed instructions for download of the files with screenshots for various operating systems you can find on: http://dictionaryofwar.org/en-dict/videohowto
Distribution network V2V (http://v2v.cc), which has been setting up over the past four years turns out as a stable and reliable environment for syndicating huge amounts of data which makes important difference to use of corporate, proprietary technology and a centralized distribution mode.
