[DUTCH] Open Nederland vraagt om feedback op haar reactie op het voorstel aanpassingen auteurswet

Als lid van Open Nederland, heb ik (een beetje, de eer gaat vooral naar Lisette Kalshoven en Maarten Zeinstra) bijgedragen aan de reactie van de vereniging op de internetconsultatie van de Nederlandse overheid over het implementeren van een Europese richtlijn die het auteursrecht in de Europese Unie aanpast. Open Nederland is nu op zoek naar feedback (deadline 30 augustus):

Creative Commons Nederland heeft met deze reactie vooral aandacht besteed aan de randvoorwaarden die nodig zijn om van onze licenties gebruik te kunnen blijven maken. Hieronder vallen o.a. aspecten als verplichte billijke vergoedingen en het voorstel voor bescherming van perspublicaties.

New website version 0.2

Screenshot of version 0.2 of this website.

This week I made good progress with this website (if I may say so myself).

First I settled on the Counter WordPress theme, as the fundament for the design and structure of this website.

Then I started hacking to make the thema a bit more to my liking. I altered the CSS to change the color scheme and fix some inconsistencies in how the different templates in the theme loaded (thanks to Maarten Zeinstra for some tips!).

I also added some PHP functions (like the_excerpt()) to change how post content loaded in category pages, because I wanted them to show an overview of posts first, and not the entire posts, like on the homepage of this website.

I’ll continue to add content over the coming weeks, to see how this may change the requirements for the design and structure of this website.

Open Images (2008-2015)

As a project manager and concept developer at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, I researched, designed, and developed the Open Images project as part of the mass digitisation project Images for the Future. This resulted in the realisation (development by AndrĂ© van Toly) – coordinated by myself and Maarten Zeinstra (working at Kennisland at the time) – of the open media platform Open Images.

The Open Images online platform enables the reuse of digitised audiovisual heritage through a clever combination of open source software, open web technology, Creative Commons licenses, open video formats, and a powerful API based on the OAI-PMH open standard. This has for example resulted in massive uptake of the material in Wikipedia, reaching millions of readers every month.

You can read more about the project here.

Trivia: In 2010 Open Images received a honorable mention from the Dutch Secretary of State Marja van Blijsterveldt-Vliegenthart (Ministry of Education, Culture, and Science) as a best-practice for open video applications.

Open Data Reader (2016)

Frontpage of the Open Data Reader 2016

As a digital heritage & open content expert at the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, I jointly developed, researched, and wrote (together with Lisette Kalshoven, Tijmen Schep & Maarten Zeinstra) the Open Data Reader (in Dutch) by Kennisland and the Netherlands Institute for Sound and (as part of their Open Cultuur Data initiative).

This reader provides legal, practical/technological, and policy guidelines for heritage and public service professionals in making their data (heritage collections, public sector information, etc.) available as open data.
