UPDATE: New Venue for CC Salon / Birthday NYC

Fred Benenson, December 12th, 2008

I was not expecting our humble NYC CC Salon / Birthday to become so popular that I had to find a new venue, but that’s what has happened.

With over 140 people and 76 maybes RSVP’d, TOPP and I were a little worried about whether the building would still be standing after the event.

So our friends at For Your Imagination have graciously offered us their loft for the event on Tuesday. I’ve amended the address on the Facebook event and blog post, but here it is anyway:


Tuesday, December 16th from 7-10pm
For Your Imagination
22 W. 27th St., 6th Floor
New York, NY

As usual there will be beer and a reception afterwards, so we look forward to seeing you!

Thanks to everyone who came out to September’s CC Salon NYC, and to the wonderful TOPP for hosting us again. We had an even bigger turn out this time (perhaps because Time Out New York wrote us up), but just as much fun. Keep an eye out for December’s event!

Just a quick reminder that the CC Salon NYC is happening tomorrow night!

The Open Planning Project has once again generously allowed us to use their loft space in the West Village for the salon and a reception afterward.

September’s Salon will feature presentations from Rachel Sterne from GroundReport.com, and a special screening / premier of two new shorts from the Meerkat Arts Media Collective, and other special surprises.

Here are the details:

Tuesday, September 30th, from 7-10pm
The Open Planing Project
349 W. 12th St., 1st Floor

We’ll also have free (as in beer) beer for the reception afterward. If you didn’t make it to July’s salon, don’t miss this one, and if you did, you’ll know to come early as space is limited.

Follow the event via Upcoming.org and RSVP via the Facebook event or e-mailing me – fred [at] creativecommons.org

Wikis Take Manhattan!

Fred Benenson, September 22nd, 2008

After the fantastic success of Wikipedia Takes Manhattan, Wikipedia, The Open Planning Project, Free Culture @ Columbia, Free Culture @ NYU and Creative Commons have all teamed up to organize another free culture photo scavenger hunt hunt for this Saturday, September 27th!

This time we’ve really stepped up the awards. The grand prize for the team with the most photos is now a dinner with Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia and CC board member, at the fantastic Pure Food & Wine restaurant in downtown Manhattan.

The photos will go directly into Wikimedia Commons and the Livable Streets Streetswiki and all photos will be released under our Attribution-ShareAlike license to allow for easy remixing and reuse in any future projects.

The day starts at 1pm and ends with a party after sunset. Register now and we’ll see you on Saturday!
