Use Open Standards

After a long series of editing, the videos from August penguin are avilable to be watched and downloaded. Thanks to all the people that participated in this voluntary project. The files are available in a flash viewer, or to be downloaded in MP4 and OGG formats.

Moreover, during the editing I have developed two tools for the Cinelerra video editor, those are also available for download.

Enjoy Watching

Hi all,

I am happy to announce that I am flying to represent my country in the ITU Telecom conference in Bangkok. I am going to be there between the 30th of August and 6th of September. I am going there as a part of the youth forum, which is a nice way because all expenses are taken care of.

The goal of the ITU is to take care of telecommunication standards and you can read about them in Wikipedia. However I am going to a conference  whose main objective is closing the digital gap in third world countries.
