The time has come for us to put together the fight archive project.
We are gonna select a group of fights to archive on a hard drive that will be available to anyone with a similar-sized harddrive. This will be specifically for research and education on boxing.
First I need volunteers for the technical spec committee -- we need to select a brand of hard drive and its size -- I am thinking 500 gig drive -- we also need to determine the best way of encoding the footage from tape and dvd masters.
Second, we need to select the fights that will be identified as the ones for inclusion in the archive. For that, i'd like volunteers for the selection committee.
The idea would be to share -- at the end of the day, everyone involved will have a 500 gig hard drive loaded with a selection of fights and footage (and some rare interviews also).
