This month finally some time to think and work on the blog again (too much casework last month), at the University of Warwick, where I am in the Scarman House with a fast internet connection. I am working on a presentation for the FP7 Divefor project of the developments at the NFI, such as defraser. It appears that also others are developing plugins with the software, so this is nice for an open source product. The software is used for analysing and repairing video files in a forensic proper way and is interactive. Currently we are developing the H264 further, however that plugin might not be open source anymore, since the return on investment is low otherwise. Which is an issue with open source, unless there is a smarter business model behind it.
It appears that last month I had most reviews ever in a month. Reviewing papers is always good to do, since it makes you reading papers better then otherwise, and good papers always give you new insights. This time I also had several proposals from the NIJ to review.
At the end of this month I will go to Salvador, Brasil, since I was invited to give a short course there at ICT in Forensics. I am looking forward to this meeting, since it might give another view on new developments and bring me new ideas. Currently I am also updating my site at http://forensic.to , since I had some backlog in updating links.
Also the program of our ENFSI Forensic IT Working group meeting in Riga in September is progressing, I already saw some interesting abstracts.
