Welcome to the RADiCAL.PiRATiCAL polymorphous conference proceedings, an ever-mutating work-in-progress dedicated to archiving all submitted ephemera from RADiCAL.PiRATiCAL (see also the schedule for an idea of what may come), which may include text transcripts, presentation slides, project photos, audio recordings, bits of code, how-to tutorials, and whatever else. Reflections on, responses to, and critiques of the event from all those who attended are also very, very welcome to be posted here. Below, please find a list of currently available materials:

  • The Knowledge Singularity – A talk by Bodó Balázs about the current tumultuous state of shadow libraries (includes subsequent discussion). Available in the following formats: MP3 | TXT
  • Pirating Periodicals – “'i has over 9000 ebooks, but 0 magz? fix it plz' or How to Populate a Magazine Archive”. Workshop slides available in the following formats: ODP 1) | PPT | TXT
  • Reflections – Notes and thoughts on the event from one participant. Available in the following formats: CBZ 2) | PDF | PNG
  • Event flyersEvent Flyer 1 Event Flyer 2
1) Note that ODP files may either not open in Microsoft PowerPoint at all, or may open but may display images incorrectly (displaying darker than they should be). This is due to the fact that PowerPoint does not correctly read the luminance settings of the images. Programs which can properly handle ODP files include LibreOffice and OpenOffice. For use-cases when attempting to view ODP presentations on a system which does not allow installing/running the above, PPT and TXT versions of the presentation are provided.
2) A CBZ is a renamed ZIP file that contains images. It can be opened with a sequential image viewer such as Comical or Comic Seer, or extracted with an archive program such as 7-Zip.
