Festival for Free/Libre and Open Source Audiovisual Software and Art.

This year the Piksel 05 catalog published for the first time The Libre Culture Manifesto by David M. Berry and Giles Moss. Isabelle Arvers joins efforts with Gisle Frøysland to build up the program NO FUN, as part of the collaboration with Pixelache in Helsinki and Mal au Pixel in Paris, about games made by artists as opposition to consumerism and spam on information society. The festival is divided into parts for the first time: Kickstart, No fun exhibition, Installations, Game OVER performances, SOFTWARE, technologies, and Collectives. The catalog made by Marieke is something to read again.

Discussion and debates on how things should be done in real-time video plugin development keep high. As Herman Robak wrote in his article in LINUX magazine 5/2005:

“An important development project under Piksel’s auspices is the video framework LiViDO. It aims to become a standard plugin architecture for video. The developers of LiViDO had daily meetings during Piksel05. The discussion about how things should be done was heated. When they finished, there was great relief that they had managed to agree.”

Piksel @ Make Art

By the end of this month, the rapidly expanding GOTO10 collective are organising Make Art – ‘a festival dedicated to the integration of “free and open source” software in electronic art’ in Poitiers, France.

I have been invited to do a presentation of Piksel05 and join a panel about the future strategies of open source in the context of digital art.
It’s very nice to see this kind of events popping up all over the place these days and I’m looking forward to meet new FLOSSminded ppl and probably some Piksel regulars too 🙂

MapOMatix 0.004 [ codename psychogeowiki ]

The MapOMatix project which aims to be ‘A Collaborative Platform For Tactical Cartography’ has been released in version 0.004. MapOMatix was presented at Piksel05 by Yves Degoyon and Chaser, and the technology seems to be picked up by an increasing number of hactivist and artivist projects already. For instance, check out the Piksel map made by Alejo Duque from the S.O.U.P. team covering the different Piksel05 locations in Bergen.

Here’s the full announcement.

David Turner (FSF) on trusted computing

David Turner (FSF) delivered a very interesting and engaged speach about the dangers of trusted computing thursday evening. It’s now available online for downloading as an mpeg video (150Mb).
Among the things he brought up in addition to the DRM threat, was the upcoming GPL3 and some interesting theories about the background for Apples switch to Intel. He also had some critical views on Creative Commons licensing.
