Andrew Green has announced Durito, a proposal to create an open source solution, utilising Semantic Web technologies, for publishing and searching Web and CD-ROM documents.

Green writes that the project is aimed at text-based research, particularly in the humanities and social sciences. The design proposal for Durito is available from Durito's SourceForge page. Comments and participation are invited.

Durito's first implementation will be a CD-ROM of oral testimonies of the Mexican Revolution. Green writes:

The testimonies were collected in the 1970's and were recently digitized. The CD-ROM (or series of CD-ROMs) will contain texts (transcriptions) in TEI - XML and audio in MP3 or OGG. We have over 200 hours of sound recordings of interviews, though the first version of the publication will contain much less than that. We hope to set this up so as to easly be able to create an Internet version of the collection as well.
