A short summery of the CAPTCHA Close-Up Conference
The CAPTCHA close-up conference took place in the framework of the European collaborative project CAPTCHA Creative Approaches to Living Cultural Archives on 5-6 June 2015 in Halle, Germany with over 50 participants.
How will we remember the history and the sound of today’s community radios in the future, and what in particular will we remember about them? How are free radio stations recording and documenting their programmes?
The content being created by free radio stations across Europe is often only partially or intermittently documented and archived, and only a small percentage of these broadcasts is available online as podcast.
We collected best practices of archiving methods, asked radio activists to present their online tools or other software systems which has been developed to save audio content.
