John Davidow of WBUR, and colleagues, gave a presentation entitled OpenCourt: Transparency in the Court, on 29 November 2011, at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. Click here for video and audio of the presentation.
Here is the abstract of the presentation:
With the support of a Knight News Challenge grant OpenCourt streams and archives live daily coverage of court sessions. The project seeks to make courts more accessible to the public through technology while respecting legitimate concerns about privacy. John Davidow (Executive Producer), Joe Spurr (Director), and Val Wang (Producer) join the Berkman Center community to talk about this fascinating project.
