We’re super excited about the upcoming Open Video Conference 2010, which will take place on October 1-2, 2010 in New York City. It’s a two-day summit to explore the future of video on the web. The event will appeal to anyone with a stake in the future of creative expression and the moving image.
OVC will feature inspiring talks, hands-on workshops, technology working groups, film screenings, and much more. Itâ€™s as much about the underlying technologies as the people and projects who use them. Whether you are a developer, a storyteller, an entrepreneur, an academic, or just a citizen of the web, we guarantee it will spark your imagination for whatâ€™s possible with video on the web.
Last yearâ€™s OVC hosted over 800 attendees in person and 8,000 online. Over 40 open source projects were represented, and 150 workshop leaders came from six continents. This year, OVC is expanding. It’s sure to draw thinkers, doers, dreamers, creators, and tinkerers from all over the planet.
The Participatory Culture Foundation was a major organizer last year and will continue to provide support this year as the OVC team preps another fantastic show!
Keep an eye on the Open Video Conference site to learn more and see who will be there!
