CNET Asia Community Blog Entry – The Radio Saga of Hong Kong’s very own Citizens’ Radio

cnet-logo.jpg

[14 January] My new entry over at CNET Asia Community Blog is up. This week’s entry, “The Radio Saga of Hong Kong’s very own Citizens’ Radio”. Click here for the read.

[Updated: 23 January] Following to my post on the Citizens’ Radio, I received the following mail from Stephen Dunifer,

Hi!

Thank you for providing the background on the struggles of Citizens Radio. Their saga is remarkably similar to what myself and other Free Speech activists went through in the United States some years ago. For details, please use my name, “Stephen Dunifer”, and Free Radio Berkeley as search terms. Also, check out these two websites – www.freeradio.org and www.radiotupa.org. I have continued to promote the cause of Free Speech on the airwaves since Free Radio Berkeley was shut down by a court injunction in 1998 by aiding and encouraging communities to put their own radio stations on the air. Currently, I am in Shenzhen visiting a friend and checking out the local electronics scene which is quite amazing – looking to source parts from here and possibly have mass assembly done for a 10 watt FM transmitter PCB. We design and manufacture our own line of transmitters and other related gear. Kind of low tech compared to CDMA cell phones and the like but they get the job done. I will be headed to India on Sunday for a week. Community radio is just getting off the ground there. Then it is back to Hong Kong for a couple of days and then returning to San Francisco on Feb. 5th.

It would be great to meet some of the folks in Citizens Radio and swap stories. Perhaps you would be able to convey this to them.

Best regards,

Stephen Dunifer

[Updated: 15 April] Woot, the Citizens’ Radio will be back on air this Sunday.

BarCamp Hong Kong on 15 December 2007

barcamphongkong.jpg

[8 November] BarCamp is an ad-hoc unconference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment.

Basically there will be ~50 presentations by everyone visiting the camp with an interest in IT. Come prepared and open to learn!

The idea is to have 30 minutes per session. Sessions start at 10 a.m., break for lunch from noon to 1pm, continue from 1pm to 5pm. That gives a total of 48 sessions.

It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.

BarCamp 是個自發、平實的研討會﹐讓大家有一個開放的空間﹐彼此分享和學習。

這個活動由參與者帶動﹐進行各式各樣的討論、示範, 讓大家打成一片。任何人有點子想獻給大家﹐或想找東西學習﹐那就對了!歡迎您來參加!

Yahoo! Hong Kong will be hosting BarCamp Hong Kong on December 15, 2007. There will be 4 conference rooms and believe a lounge area as well.

27/F Sunning Plaza
10 Hysan Avenue
Causeway Bay

雅虎香港將會於12月15日當天提供場地﹐屆時會有 4 個會議室﹐相信亦包括休閒區。

香港銅鑼灣希慎道
新寧大廈27樓

If you want to be involved in the organisation, then please join the Facebook group. Otherwise, just sign up on the participants list at http://barcamp.org/BarCampHongKong. The event is open to everyone.

若果你想幫忙組織是次活動﹐請加入我們在 Facbook 的工作小組。

CNET Asia Community Blog Entry – Application of the month – iDesktop.TV

cnet-logo.jpg

My new entry over at CNET Asia Community Blog is up. This week’s entry, “Application of the month – iDesktop.TV”. Click here for the link.

Here’s the excerpt -

If you’re a frequent YouTube user or to a certain extent, an addict, I just might have the application for you. iDesktop.TV, previously known as the YouTube Desktop, first launched its beta in August this year and was renamed and relaunched just last week.

The user interface let you watch multi videos on one screen by utilizing multiple players and there are four different aspect ratios for playing the videos. Videos are pulled off YouTube and the searching functions work just as well if not better. In addition, iDesktop.TV also allows users to import playlists or favorites from their YouTube user accounts.

Apart from all that, the single most useful function is that you can download any video and save it as avi, mp4 (ipod), mov, 3gp, 3gp2 (mobile), mov, wmv, flv, exe (built in standalone player) or even zip formats……
