FM openlearn webcams Conf. The Flashmeeting Project includes an application based on the Adobe Flash 'plug in' and Flash Media Server. Running in a standard web browser window, it allows a dispersed group of people to meet from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. Typically a meeting is pre-booked by a registered user and a url, containing a unique password for the meeting, is returned by the server. The 'booker' passes this on to the people they wish to participate, who simply click on the link to enter into the meeting at the arranged time. During the meeting one person speaks (i.e. broadcasts) at a time. Other people can simultaneously contribute using text chat, the whiteboard, or emoticons etc. while waiting for their turn to speak. Meeting users belong to one of three account types; Guest, Sign In and Booker. Click the large 'broadcast' button to begin broadcasting both your image and sound to everyone else in the meeting - when you've finished click the button again to stop.

PunBB What is PunBB? PunBB is a fast and lightweight PHP-powered discussion board. It is released under the GNU General Public License. Why PunBB? The idea of PunBB was first born when I needed a discussion board for a website I was working on. was fast. had a simple layout and design. was easy to administrate and moderate. didn't output huge, non-valid, (X)HTML pages. had source code you could read and understand. To my dismay, such a forum was nowhere to be found. Developing software to "please the masses" isn't difficult. Some features that I have so far chosen not to implement are: private messaging, file attachments, polls, linking to off-site avatars, advanced text formatting controls, subforums etc etc. Rickard PunBB history (brief) See the PunBB history page for a detailed version. PunBB was founded by Rickard Andersson, who conceived it as an alternative to over-featured or too graphic discussion boards. A further remarkable step forward was the release of PunBB 1.2 in January of 2005. | brainstorm and mind map online Visual Understanding Environment - Gallery The "Gallery" section is new to our website.

Minga de Brest: co-création d’un kit de co-création de biens communs | Lilian Ricaud Comment faciliter l’auto-organisation de groupes de travail pour créer des biens communs ? J’ai été invité à intervenir au Forum des Usages Coopératifs de Brest « Territoires et dynamiques contributives, la coopération en action » où j’ai animé un atelier ayant pour but de co-créer un kit de formats de rencontres comme outil pour co-créer des biens communs. Voici un retour sur cet atelier; l’article est long mais riche d’informations pour ceux qui s’intéressent à l’animation de groupes. Comment s’auto-organiser en tant que groupe ? On voit de plus en plus de collectifs citoyens qui essayent de s’organiser pour inventer un mode meilleur et passer de l’opposition à la construction d’alternatives: Villes en Biens Communs, Colibris, Villes en transition, Transition Citoyenne, … Ces collectifs citoyens en grande partie auto-organisés rassemblent des personnes d’horizons et de cultures très différentes autour d’une envie commune. Comment passer de cette envie commune à une action commune ?
