Re: [documentliberation-discuss] Improving the Document Liberation Project website

Hi all,

Here's an idea for a simplified version of the DLP front page, as discussed with David. It takes the core info but makes it snappier and straight to the point, directing readers at other pages if they want to explore further. All feedback welcome -- if nobody has any objections I could put it online next week.

The situation

Many computer users today have digital content created years ago and stored in old, outdated and proprietary file formats. Frequently, these old files cannot be opened by any application on the user's current operating system. The users are, put simply, locked out of their own content. And this affects entire organizations too - so what happens when a government is unable to read or access digital data from past years? The consequences are huge.

The solution [thumbnail on right of video]

The Document Liberation Project was created to empower individuals, organizations, and governments to recover their data from proprietary formats and provide a mechanism to transition that data into open and standardises file formats, returning effective control over the content from computer companies to the actual authors. To achieve this, The Document Liberation Project develops software libraries that applications can use to read data in proprietary formats.

Who's using it?

Many well-known free and open source software applications use Document Liberation Project libraries, including...
