The idoc tool design project is underway, with the first preliminary meeting with a programmer/developer happening last week. Some people have already expressed interest in collaborating on the open source, GNU licensed development of the design. Anyone else in the NFL is welcome to contact me with expressions of interest. The programmer and I are planning a workshop before the end of the year. This will be great opportunity for idoc makers particularly to work alongside a programmer and share their thoughts on a design, from the perspective of their own making experience and working with other tools.
The project summary: This project will explore the design of an interactive documentary tool. The aim is to take a collective design approach that involves the input and support of non/fictionLab members. The tool will be developed out of the non/fictionLab in the short-term from a seeding perspective, with the aim to work towards long-term support.
