As part of our new experimental digital archiving project leftove.rs we have been running regular meet-ups to explore different ways to building databases and models for archival distribution, and reusing material (more details here: maydayrooms/leftovers.org). We are now having an open meeting for those who are interested with getting involved further and contributing to the direction of this project.
We want to know how you search for, scan, collect, store, circulate, read and delete digital documents. How these methods might help us think about developing an aggregated archive of dissent. The evening will be a chance to hear about the project, pool ideas, protocols, formats, distributions, databases, software and think about what a digital archive of radical political ephemera might look like. We hope that we can also decide what future skills shares around this area might be.
Please email email@example.com if you wish to attend so we can get an idea of numbers.
