OPEN ARCHIVES AND PUBLISHING

TAM-TAM - TARGETING LOCATIVE AND FREE MEDIA ISSUES –
[w010a] workshop facilitated by Aleksandar Erkalovic

TamTam is an easy-to-use publishing platform for collaborative and dynamic projects that don't have a fixed structure from very beginning, but grow it as they develop. Based on a small number of easy-to-remember rules TamTam lets almost everyone manage and organize their web site.
It was developed with the idea of a dynamic web, but having in mind beginners and designers (who don't have programmers on disposal). TamTam sites are ment to be open to all who feel like contributing to other peoples work. That is one of the main differences between TamTam and common publishing systems.
