During the April 1st G20 at London Bridge and the Bank I sent some MMS
pics with text to the reporting phone number provided at around 11am but
they did not appear. For that reason I think it is far better to be able
to publish straight to the site whenever possible, rather than rely on an
intermediary. Just a thought.
> I've been chatting to a few people about planning coverage of the
> london climate camp starting next week (wed 26th) and wanted to send
> an update.
> Imc london folks are setting up an Indymedia dispatch / reporting
> telephone line, starting on the first day of the camp, which includes
> the taking of the site.
> The numbers are being sorted and will be published on london + uk site
> and publicised on email lists, twitter etc etc
> Importantly they will also be printed onto little flyers for physical
> distro at camp. Obviously this is encouraging publishing to the local
> london imc site, but it's intended that coverage will link to all diy
> produced media.
> The little flyers + published stuff will also have info on submitting
> MMS (pics/video), text via sms, on using specific tags if publishing
> in other places, as well as publishing via the mobile version of indy
> london which is currently live but beta testing.
> The focus on mobile is due to the fact that there will be little
> public access provision at the camp. As you'll have seen however, imc
> northern have sorted a load of kit and will be providing some net
> connected laptops running on renewables for this purpose.
> As with previous years there's also a 'documenting the camp' group.
> It's worth noting too that the cc media team will be facilitating some
> photo publishing. Vision-on TV will be facilitating video along with
> climate tv. And the radio crew will be rocking too :)
> There's gonna be at least one imc / be the media workshop at the camp
> fyi - mainstream media site policy allows more access that previoius
> camps - see: http://climatecamp.org.uk/media+access+policy
> More later...
