 Is someone on the list able to take these ideas forward?  A lot of what is
 discussed below as ideas are way beyond me – and I'm pretty comfortable with
 computers (but very behind on the latest technologies I guess!).



 If it is simple for others to do (submi
t to someone to post to the world),
 I think a visual active format really sells ideas to people well, but, I
 just don't know how many ordinary people have these capabilities – if it is
 an easy option for some people, great, go for it!

 hi JC, all

 I agree that the videos should be used to fund-raise for IPCON and the
 IPCON website is central to that

 I would suggest that video's be hosted on various servers, using social
 network effects.. i.e post video's with watermarks and branding and donate
 now links on YouTube, FaceBook, MySpace, Gaia.com, WiserEarth etc etc etc

 indeed WiserEarth is probably the biggest permaculture social networking
 site

 by cross-posting to various social network sites you create a larger social
 marketing profile for the IPCON.. you create a larger catchment surface area
 for fundraising

 I'd also like to be able to include the IP
CON videos on the
 www.permaculture.tv website.

 I am trying to create a single portal that promotes videos from all over
 the permaculture movement.

 I'd also suggest you think about using the permaculture.tv Mogulus
 platforms live video interviewing system for raising the profile for
 fundraising i.e. we could do a some interviews with the IPCON organisers in
 the lead-up to the event

 without the cooperation of the permaculture community, cooperative websites
 like permaculture.tv will fail and we will be left with isolated,
 marginalised websites that rely on links from gatekeeper websites like
 Wikipedia and smaller blog sites and the whims of the corporate media.

 I am merely proposing, that with cooperation from the permaculture
 community, organically and naturally, permaculture.tv will become more and
 more the resource for permaculture videos.. it certainly has been
 well-received by general users, though no-doubt its going to be more
 challenging negotiating with individual content holders

 thats the concept and you can start to see the potential on the website now

 Hi JC

 Thank you for the explanation. I agree with the need to archive any
 recordings on the IPC9 web site. We do not have any computer with either an
 embedded or attached web cam yet.

 Walter

 Hi, Walter,

 For your information, we already have the capability to post high-quality
 video to the IPC9 website.  Anyone with a video camera can record whatever
 they like ... interviews, speakers, site presentations, etc. ... and I can
 post the video
 to the site.  We presently don't have the capability to post live video,
 but my sense
 is that having the videos be live isn't very important.  It's more
 important to have
 them recorded.

 Note that anyone with high-speed Internet access can have a video
 conference using
 Apple computers with embedded video cams, using iChat (or with attached web
 cams).
 These conferences can also be recorded very easily.

 I think its important that IPC9 video be hosted on the IPC9 website,
 and for that video to be recorded and archived at the site.  Having
 the video on the IPC9 website will help draw the public to the site,
 and that's where donations should be collected.

 best,
 JC

 hi Penny (President of Permaculture North) and IPC Secretariat,

 see below for some ideas on leveraging the media cooperative project
 Permaculture.TV and the platform Mogulus for IPCON

 I'd like to feature the IPCON on www.Permaculture.TV<http://www.permaculture.tv/>.
 See below on some examples on how that might work

 We can get fol
ks from IPCON and other places around the world linked-up via
 web-cams and have live TV.. perhaps video link-ups with permaculture groups
 in Sydney and other places around the world, combined with fundraisers ?
 forums ? questions and answers etc ? combine this with an online audience
 and you have real community building ?

 how to have multiple people colloborate for live broadcasts

 http://www.mogulus.com/userguide/index.php/Set_up_your_team#Collaborate_for_live_broadcasts

 I've just spent a month or so helping with the Nordic Organising Committe
 in Sweden set-up and run the European Social Forum and I'd suggest it would
 help engage folks in the long lead-up to IPCON and raise funds,
 participants, quality of material etc if we could think about leverage the
 www.Permaculture.TV <http://www.permaculture.tv/> product and the Mogulus
 live TV platform.

 http://openfsm.net/projects/australian-social-forum/blog/2008/09/25/european-social-forum/

 Womans Conference 2008  http://www.mogulus.com/blog/?p=628
 Broadcast Live
 http://www.mogulus.com/userguide/index.php/Broadcast_live#Broadcast_live_from_your_Web_cam
 Record Live
 http://www.mogulus.com/userguide/index.php/Record_your_live_shows

 Being an open colloborative platform, this could be a web-video tool for
 IPCON and the permaculture movement at large. This is a media cooperative
 project and it doesnt need gatekeepers or centralised control.



 see below for some Permaculture.TV action items
 - get a team to cover the International Permaculture Convergance in
 Africa... it would be great to have an 
ongoing link-up - online interviews,
 live forums - and a kind of reality tv (real-life tv) over 2009... then
 set-up a permaculture.tv tent or operation in Africa for the event for
 folks that cant be there

 To: pil-pc-oceania at lists.permacultureinternational.org


 hi Terry

 my approach for the summer is to struggle through with a modest
 proof-of-concept - with no budget and no worries - using basic equipment.
 Scouting out groups and sites with basic, consumer equipemnt (i.e 100
 camera, 500 video, 400 audio) and do samples. Then follow-up with a DVD
 quality production crew with proper video etc in the new year.

 thanks for the kind words regarding www.Permaculture.TV<http://www.permaculture.tv/>- 
'd like to thankyou for the encouragement and support - you practically
 started me thinking there was real interest in this...

 last night the good folks at Permaculture North Sydney where kind enough to
 hear me talk for a few minutes at the end of an excellent members
 show-and-tell, and it gave me further encouragement and insight into next
 steps

 some ideas and action items that come to mind from last night - need to
 further define, order, priotise, delegate, cost & fund

 - set-up a radio/video production system in the Octapod's community media
 space - Wed 19th that starts
 - set-up a stab
le long term server environment - researching hosting
 providers, platforms, tools etc
 - researching production systems and product examples - OpenPlans,
 LivableStreets, World Social Forum (OpenFSM), European Social Forum
 (OpenESF), Indy Media Greece (Indy.gr), MyBarackObama, Engage Media
 - get to Jude & Michel Byron Seedsavers and help them with their web
 strategy and hopefully gather some videos
 - get to Robyn Francis's Nimbin permaculture school and film and gather
 some video's of here work, travels, especially focussing on the Cuban
 experience
 - work with Permaculture North to make permaculture propaganda video's for
 education, organisation and activism: documenting their excellent social and
 organisational permaculture. They have an amazing catalgue of grass-roots
 success stories.
 - make a single Permaculture.TV promotional package before Christmas... use
 that to start a number of story lines for next year
 - set-up other nodes of operation in Sydney, Melbourne, Northern NSW, South
 East Queensland, South Coast NSW and Canberra.. again tapping existing
 Permaculture Groups
 - use My.BarackObama as an example of purpose-driven social network
 websites i.e content items around people, groups, networks, projects, tasks.

 - get a team to cover the International Permaculture Convergance in
 Africa... it would be great to have an ongoing link-up - online interviews,
 live forums - and a kind of reality tv (real-life tv) over 2009... then
 set-up a permaculture.tv tent or operation in Africa for the event f
or
 folks that cant be there
 - make Permaculture TV story lines or shows - that could be onsold to
 community radio, tv and public broadcasters, DVDs and even (god forbid)
 commercial media (at a fee) - obvious ideas; Permaculture in Schools,
 Permaculture Homes, Streets, Suburbs, Community Gardens, Permaculture Groups
 and Networks, Permaculture Teachers etc etc
 - set-up task & project management system - Trac
 - set-up membership management system - CivicCRM
 - set-up web content management systems - Drupal (Scald), WordPress, Plone
 (OpenCore, Plumi)
 - set-up social planning systems - OpenPlans (OpenCore on Plone)
 - set-up social video system - Plumi (Plone)
 - develop training package / course for Permaculture Media that could be
 used by community and permaculture groups to plug-in to this media ecology
 - develop integrated portal for website siblings; http://CoopAustralia.org<http://coopaustralia.org/>,
 http://EcoBurb.TV <http://ecoburb.tv/>, http://WorkCooperatives.com<http://workcooperatives.com/>

 and so on

 I'll be moving these tasks to a web-based task management system and will
 be using that to structure online colloboration

 I apologise for exposing folks to the technical details of this, thinking
 out loud

 anyway, cheers again

 -N
