Saturday April 12 / 11.00 – 18.00h

Uncommon Business Models – 11.00h
In this session we will take on the subject of open business models. Two experts from related media industries that are arguably ahead of the curve will kick off the workshop. Jan Velterop, CEO of Knewco and one of the leading experts on Open Access, will give us an insight in the deployment of open business models in scientific publishing. Over the past couple of years Open Access has been able to provide a valid and sustainable alternative in this 7 billion dollar industry. Jonas Woods, Head of Music at the pioneering music company Last.fm, will pick up from there. In his presentation he will highlight how his company has successfully generated income streams in an industry that has shown to be particularly vulnerable in the open environment of the Internet. These examples will pave the way for an interesting discussion with panelists Peter Kaufman (Intelligent Television), Roei Amit (INA), Rick Prelinger (Prelinger Archives) and Eerde Hovinga (NIBG-tbc).

In the afternoon we focus on Intangible Heritage Resources in the (Non-) Western World. With Joost Smiers (Prof. em. Political Science of the Arts), Shubha Chaudhuri (ARCE), Anthony McCann (University of Ulster) Wim van Zanten (ICTM).

The last panel consists of Professional Cultural Producers. With Florian Schneider (Kein.tv), Kenneth Goldsmith (Ubuweb), Bauke Freiburg (Fabchannel / Culture Player), Chai Locher (NFTVM – tbc), Rick Prelinger (Prelinger Archives).
