MediaGoblin, Blender, and Network Freedom in Graphics

Christopher Webber

Friday 25 October Theater 30

GNU MediaGoblin is a free software media hosting platform, comparative to a Flickr or YouTube/Vimeo that anyone can run. It also includes a 3D model type that uses Blender on the backend to render previews and thumbnails. What other ways might the MediaGoblin and Blender communities interact?

Discussion includes using MediaGoblin as a portfolio tool, and analyzing how MediaGoblin might be used as a production critique/feedback tool. Talk also goes into analysis of MediaGoblin and Blender both hitting intersection of free software and free culture communities, and possible implications for user freedom.
