The future of radio at ON2: Test Signals festival
The second edition of ON festival will take place in Berlin from 22nd till 24th October. The event will bring together software developers and radio practitioners to demonstrate, discuss and develop new ways of applying software to radio. It is co-organised by Sourcefabric, the not-for-profit organisation responsible for the leading open source radio software Campcaster, and reboot.fm, Berlin’s free cultural radio station.
The festival is an official satellite event of transmediale, festival for art and digital culture, and is the first in a series of open-source workshop events supported by the Free Culture Incubator. The festival is also partnered by user-generated radio Open Broadcast, GTZ Berlin, and Mute, a magazine dedicated to exploring culture and politics after the net.

Sourcefabric services in Tbilisi, Georgia
Douglas Arellanes, Sourcefabric's director of clients and services, is conducting series of services for media and journalists in Caucasus. The first is in Tbilisi for a series of consultations with Georgian news agencies to help them make more effective sites, making better use of multimedia components, looking at new forms of news gathering and using social media as a way to reach new audiences.
The second event is in Batumi, and is part of a two-month course for working journalists organized by the Georgia Institute of Public Affairs. It's designed to get journalists up to speed on using digital tools in their everyday work. Week of trainings will cover a pretty wide field, including business models, digital privacy and security, tips for managers running new-media projects, and an explanation of open source philosophy and its importance for news media.
The third event will also be held in Batumi, and is a media clinic, a series of individualized consultations with people starting their new-media projects. To use terminology from the venture capital world, it's pre-angel consultation and coaching.

We welcome all input, be it from a developer, power user, community, fan.
Campsite is HTML5 ready!
The big challenge for CMS web publishing today is the migration of sites to HTML5. Where other CMS systems struggle to clean up their code and alter their skins and templates, Campsite is HTML5 ready out of the box. The key to Campsite’s flexibility is our enterprise-level templating engine. Becuase of the strict separation of layout and data, the HTML displayed on your site is entirely under your control. Learn more about templating with Campsite at the URL below. A brief HOWTO will follow shortly on our website.
