The Open Publishing Edition of NGO-in-a-box is a toolkit of Free and Open Source software, tutorials and guides for producing, publishing and distributing content. The Edition, produced by Tactical Tech in collaboration with iCommons, is aimed at small to medium sized non-profits, independent media organisations, free culture creators and grassroots journalists with a particular emphasis on those in developing and transition countries.
Good compilation of resources to, as said before, publish content and do it on a free/open basis. The compilation has three main sections:
- Tools, with the main free software applications to manage your content, be it text be it images, on your desktop or online, etc.
- Projects – How To…, with concrete, practical examples on how to carry on the most common tasks
- Resources, with outlinks to Tactical Tech guides for content diffusion
Besides this main navigation architecture, there’s still room for an Introduction to Open Publishing, other resources and live CDs. A very good work… and reference.
