I recently finished another iteration of development on the Critical Commons website, with Andy Nicholson of Infinite Recursion. Critical Commons is an online resource for film educators that pushes the boundaries of fair use (copyright) legislation by making clips from films available with academic commentaries, in both text and audio format. The site, devised by the USC School of Cinematic Arts Institute for Multimedia Literacy, enables lecturers to organise collections of clips and commentaries as lectures for classroom delivery. The website is built on the Plumi software, which was created by EngageMedia – a free open source software project to create a video sharing web application based on the Plone content management system.

Done by Law Podcasts

In 2008 I was the web developer for the Done by Law website which was launched recently. Done by Law is the radical law show on much-loved 3CR community radio here in Melbourne, produced by a great team of people working in various areas of the law for the Federation of Community Legal Centres in Victoria.

The site is a simple audio blog built using WordPress, designed by Tom Civil of the wonderful local publishers, artists and activists Breakdown Press, and project managed by Marian Prickett from the Done by Law show. I had a lot of fun making this website, hacking WordPress is a fiddly yet satisfying thing to do. It’s also satsifying helping a community radio show find it’s place on the web.
