I like the idea of letting people sharing their pictures/videos.
I will do short (more details below about some thoughts I have)…
1- We could open a poppy flickr account? a vimeo or youtube channel?
2 -On the poppy forum, we can set a new category where members can post a message including a link to their videos and pictures (USE CASE, PICTURE/VIDEOS, the name has to be found! )
3- We monitor at the forum and grab the best picture and videos. We promote them on our main website?
What do you think of this proposition?
** /// more details in my mind (you are not forced to read it)**
on top of this “infrastructure” you can create an EVENTIFIER portal. EVENTIFIER allows you to create a single page where are resumed all the pictures, the videos, the events, the tweets on a single page. The page is created automatically (you have to give HASTAGS, etc). Here is an exemple: http://www.eventifier.info/event/nuitinfo/popular
Note that this portal can be done (and should be done) LATER… in several weeks when we will have more content to share
1- Open sharing pictures mean that people publish videos and pictures with the poppy TAG into the metadata ?
2- They have a generic account (on flickr for instance), they publish picture on the central POPPY picture repository (flickr) ?
3- This makes me think of an old discussion we had with Matthieu about promoting on poppy website other poppy projects (made by beta tester, they have an account on poppy wiki platform and publish by themselves their data, it gives them a privilege compared to the rest of the community).
The question -3- is thus:
- do you want a large/open shared picture/video place?
- do you want to authorized only the beta tester to publish and thus make them in prior more visible.
- do you want a mixture?
Be aware, that I am not against the shared picture place, I love it but I am wondering about the beta tester… ?
In the past, we looked at the cycling74.com website (MAXFORLIVE) and we thought that this kind of website was the one we wanted: a place where poppy is presented and people with good projects can published photos, codes, etc.
