We hope you can join us at the next ccSalon SF when we will explore the digital intersection of art, history, and culture, and how CC can play a defining role in enriching all three. Our presenters for the evening:

* Francesco Spagnolo, Director of Research and Collections at the Magnes Museum in Berkeley. Francesco will explore the sharing and marketing of cultural heritage through the lenses of the Magnes’ “Digital Narratives,” a project that seeks an alignment between a narrative approach to history, a collaborative practice in the interpretation of cultural history, and the uses of technology and online social media.
* Dave Toole, CEO and Founder, Outhink Media, will present on how storytelling bridges the cultural and business arenas, outlining the challenges posed by the new social media and the crucial role played by research in information technology.
* Nancy Van House, Professor, UC Berkeley School of Information, will respond to the other presenters by reflecting on the way in which academia is looking at social media and personal/historical digital archiving, exploring the human interactions that populate the online world.

When: Wednesday, June 24, 7-9pm
Location: PariSoMa, 1436 Howard St. (map and directions). Plenty of street parking available. (Please note, the space is located up two steep flights of stairs, and unfortunately does not currently have elevator access.)

Light refreshments will be provided, and since we rely on the generosity of our community to keep us afloat, we’ll be accepting donations for CC at the door.

Check out the event posting on Upcoming and Facebook. We hope to see you there!

On Tuesday, April 7th, 20×200, a project started by Jen Bekman that produces affordable, exhibition quality art prints and sells them exclusively online, will release a special benefit edition by designer Matt Jones with proceeds to benefit Creative Commons. This is an incredible way to support CC, so be sure to sign up for the twice-weekly 20×200 newsletter to to be among the first to collect Matt’s print for as little as $20. Popular editions often sell out via the mailing list before they’re even available on the 20×200 homepage, so add yourself to the list for your best shot at getting one of Matt’s prints and supporting CC in this unique way.

We are honored that Matt Jones has chosen CC as the beneficiary for his special 20×200 edition, and as always, we are extremely grateful for the generous support of our community! Find out about all the ways you can support CC and participatory culture.

Also, if you’re in San Francisco, you can check out the 20×200 Collector’s Confab, a cocktail party co-hosted by 20×200 and Chronicle Books on Monday, April 6, from 6-8pm, at Chronicle Books in San Francisco (Map and Directions).
