Dates for “ON2: Test Signals”, which will bring together software
developers and radio practitioners to demonstrate, discuss and develop
new ways of applying software to radio, have been announced. ON2 will
take place from Friday 22 October - Sun 24 October in the Haus der
Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, Germany.
“Far from killing radio, the internet is actually behind a remarkable
resurgence,” says festival producer Adam Thomas from Sourcefabric, the
not-for-profit organisation responsible for the leading open source
radio software Campcaster. “We’re seeing an increasing number of
community and non-commercial stations use software and the internet in
hugely innovative ways to boost listener figures across all platforms.”
Two such stations, reboot.fm, Berlin’s free cultural radio station and
user-generated radio pioneers Open Broadcast from Switzerland, are
official partners of the festival.
Also appearing at the festival will be radio futurologist James
Cridland, Mozilla Drumbeat’s Henrik Moltke, and representatives from
Creative Commons, 64 Studio, Unikom, Global Radio, RadioDNS,
newthinking, Mekong ICT and Radio Aporee. Alongside many other radio and
software organisations, they will provide three days of expert keynotes,
open presentations, hands-on workshops, one-on-one mentoring and social
ON2 are currently considering applications to hold a workshop or
presentation in the fields of software and radio. To apply, please write
to email@example.com with a summary of your idea and project.
Public events will be free to attend, but sign up is required. The
festival will be of particular interest to radio station managers, open
source developers, web entrepreneurs, hardware hackers and journalists.
The festival is an official satellite event of transmediale, festival
for art and digital culture and is the first in a series of open-source
workshop events supported by the Free Culture Incubator. The festival is
also partnered by Mute, a magazine dedicated to exploring culture and
politics after the net. This is the second version of the festival
following one held in June 2010 in Basel, Switzerland.
