AN ALTERNATIVE MEDIUM ON ALTERNATIVE MEDIA
The “Alternative Media Global Project (AMPG)” is a multilingual, global collaborative Internet site devoted to recording research on and connections with alternative, radical, citizens, Community, independent, militant, autonomous, media throughout the world. This project was launched in october 2007 as an initiative of Benjamin Ferron, RE Davis and Clemencia Rodriguez. The project profits from the support of the OURMedia network.
During the last decades, projects and researches on alternative communication have multiplied. The Alternative Media Global Project seeks to centralize these resources and to make them available to the community of researchers, activist, and actors who work on, with or for alternative media.
The Alternative Media Global Project is built on a Wiki platform. This allows users to carry out modifications without constraint and allows web pages to be created to serve the needs of the users. This allows the users to maximize customability while minimizing technical or geographic accessibility. The AMGP uses Dokuwiki as its base which is an open source program.
