Open Plans was the host with the most as we partnered with the Participatory Culture Foundation to convene the first-ever Open Subtitles Design Summit at the Open Plans penthouse meeting space in New York City.
Held as part of the Universal Subtitles project, the event brought together a broad array of people passionate about making video subtitling technologies more open and accessible. Outcomes included a Quality Manifesto and an inventory of subtitle formats.
It was an honor and a pleasure to collaborate with the fine folks at PCF, who summarized the outcomes in a fine blog post. We really salute their leadership and vision in building a broad-based coalition of stakeholders to move the open subtitles field forward. The event was generously supported the Open Society Institute.
