Every month in OTW Signal we’ll take a look at stories that connect to the OTW’s mission and projects, including legal, technology, academic, fannish history, and preservation issues that are important for fandom, fan culture or transformative works.
In the News
Recently the podcast Pod on the Suit interviewed Open Doors staffer Acts of Tekla about the project’s work. The discussion covered both the digital imports of archives to AO3 and physical material preservation, as well as various details of the OTW’s workings, from how the Translation Committee operates to what you need to look for if you’re thinking about orphaning your works on AO3. Open Doors’ ability to preserve as well as its limitations were explained to listeners, as well as some of the inside details of working on the project.
