Dear all,

The 12th of October of 2011 T4T will be promoted in the international Frankfurt Book Fair, in connection with the launch of a major book about CERN.

We will have a booth with some computers showing the project, our new graphics application (it is on the testing phase right now!!) for showing the results, fliers, etc. However, we think that one of the most valuable items could be your collaboration, as you are the "power" in this project :)

The idea is the following: record yourself with a video camera and answer the following question, why do you participate in this project?

You can answer the question in your own language, making the video internationally available. We particularly want to make sure there are lots of German-language contributions, as most of the people visiting the book fair, especially on the public open days, are German.

We would love it if you also send us your answer in text, so we can add the subtitles to the video very easily. With all your videos, we will create a video collage with all of you explaining and promoting why the project is important for you.

The video should be short, 30 seconds or less, as we want a lot of people involved. Try to be creative!!! and the most important thing: try to have fun recording it!!!

The final video will be released with a Creative Commons license (CC BY-NC-SA), so everyone will be able to copy, tweak, distribute, translate it to their language, and add it to their blogs, theaters, schools, etc.

The deadline for submitting the videos is the 23rd of September. The videos can be in any format, but please use codecs like XVID or AVI and try to avoid if possible wmv. You can send us the videos via: dropbox links, free online storage services, e-mail if it is less than 5MB, etc.

Cheers and vielen Dank,

The team!!

Can you use ogg/vorbis (.ogv) videos? I can convert to AVI if you want but .ogv is easiest for me.

Daniel -- Rather than go the video route, I'd rather send a poem, which
has been completed (auf Deutsch), but is awaiting final critique by
some German-American friends.

If the poem approach should meet your approval, could I send it
to you, via email? The reason, is that most submitted text seems to be
left-justified, and my poem(s) have most lines centered along each page's
mid-line.

The poem is short -- one page, and narrow.

Yea, or nay?

Dear James,

Just send it ;) We then will see if it fits! I think that the community will also like it :)

Cheers,

Daniel

Yes, please send videos etc. to:

Andre-Pierre OLIVIER

If bigger than 5MB, just send a pointer to where the video was uploaded, OK?

(If you've already sent material to Daniel, after the date of 16th September, please resend it to Andre-Pierre !)

Thanks from the team

Daniel -- Have been trying to send my German-English poem, about
Test4Theory@Home, to you/Andre, without success. Would rather not
have to re-type, here, and haven't figured out how to include as a
link.

For me, email would be the best route, unless you can give a tip.

Thanks, in advance,

jm

Daniel -- Kindly disreguard my last message; poem successfully sent to
