Two major innovators in digital cultural documentation meet for a conversation on goals, methods, frameworks, and business models. Michael Frisch, Professor Emeritus of the University of Buffalo and former president of both the Oral History Association and the American Studies Association, has recently created a consulting firm, Randforce Associates, to develop software for indexing and annotating audio and video documentation. P. Sainath received the 2007 Ramon Magsaysay Award (the “Asian Nobel”) for his “passionate commitment as a journalist to restore the rural poor to India’s national consciousness.” He is Founder-Editor of the crowdfunded, volunteer-sustained People’s Archive of Rural India.
