Open Subtitles Design Summit

On September 29 & 30, the Open Subtitles Design Summit brought together roughly forty participants working in a range of disciplines and contexts related to open subtitling. The event was organized by Dean Jansen who is part of the Special Projects team at the Participatory Culture Foundation and also works on the Universal Subtitles project. The goals of the summit was connecting major stakeholders from projects, identifying ways to solve stakeholders’ subtitling needs, and move towards standardizing solutions.  A wiki was started in order to keep a record of the agenda and the generated ideas.

Even though I was unable to make it to the first day I learned a lot on day two.  I attended numerous group sessions which I will be summarizing in subsequent blogs. The sessions included:

Look-up discussion; a protocol or a way to search for video subtitles on the web.

Interacting with the W3C; how to weigh in on W3C standards.

Popcorn-js; what the library is missing.

Building Community; how to make a community around Universal Subtitles.
