- Wed Sept 30 – Building Creative Collaboration Online
Social networking applications have opened many new opportunities for creative people to collaborate online. Australian online collaborative spaces are notoriously thin on the ground but there are a few leaders in a small pack. What consitutes an online creative community, how do you motivate people to contribute content and what are the benefits that are offered?
Speakers will include:
- Sherre De Lys from the ABC’s Pool – a creative community for online collaboration and content creation and
- Matt Fayle and Pip Jameson from The Loop, a creative portfolio and collaboration site about to be launched targeting creative industries.
Pool was launched by the ABC in 2008 and is a creative community of content creators and a place to share and talk about creative work. It embraces music, photos, videos, documentaries, interviews, animations and other forms and has brokered partnerships between the ABC and universities. Pool claims to be ‘conducting research in action at the intersection of broadcast and participatory media’ and embraces Creative Commons licencing in a big way. The Loop is a platform for promotion where creative people can showcase their skills and achievements, share ideas and connect with other creative people.It is also a highly targeted job advertising portal and is the creation of Pip Jameson and Matt Fayle, both ex-MTV creatives. The Loop is the first Australian recruitment and portfolio site that is built on a social networking platform. It will launch in October 2009.
