Ira from Mellon & Community Source

Ira Fuchs from Mellon is talking about Community Source, and the larger dynamic within the community — successes, attitudes, opportunities, and risks.

zotero is interesting, both as an example of an open-source project that like Firefox has had viral adoption, with a strong community marketing and communications effort. I also wonder if there’s a convincing Sakaibrary integration possibility, perhaps a direct gateway into the Citations Manager tool that let you save or push bookmarks into the citations manager.

Vertox – a plug-in for a plug-in is interesting. Video tagging is a neat application, though in many respect I’ve always thought the combination of OCR and voice recognition to auto index text & words mentioned in a clip, and index them would be potentially more transformative than manual tagging & citing.
