I was at the Pararchive conference on Friday. It’s all about digital storytelling, for a range of different purposes including sociological research, archiving, oral history, and just… storytelling. They’ve built a rather nice platform called Yarn, for hosting multi-media content.
It was useful to button-hole some knowledgable people about issues like copyright, content moderation, privacy, and so on. Particular props to Rebecca from the Digital Repository of Ireland for some good tips on copyright infringement and ‘notice and action’.
Anyway, here’s a prezi version of my own presentation, which explains what MacGuffin’s all about. You’ll just have to imagine my excitable voice and wild gesticulations, which make the whole experience special. Don’t say I never give you anything.
