À€I’m at the University of California @ Irvine’s Humanities Research Institute talking with some good folks about humanities education and technology.
I did a short presentation about Creative Commons this morning, and by the time I’d wrapped up, conference participant Joe Futrelle, who is technical lead of Digital Library Technologies at NCSA, had licensed several of his own tunes. Joe says he wishes our licensing process were even quicker.Comments Off on Instant Karma
We’ve have been enjoying the content on VentureBlog and Bag and Baggage for some time, but recently both of these Creative Commons licensed blogs did a great job covering The Wall Street Journal’s D: All Things Digital Conference.
Thanks to some restrictions on the conference, professional journalists were not allowed to cover the event, but audience members could. VentureBlog had some great insights to take away from the conference and Bag and Baggage did a great job taking live notes from the Steve Jobs interview and the dinner with Bill Gates, and also posted photos from the event.
In addition to the recent reporting, each blog has content worthy of merit. VentureBlog is run by venture capital firm investors and their series of posts on Presenting Your Company offers many useful insider tips. We’ve pointed to Denise at Bag and Baggage before on this weblog, but her posts on what Creative Commons licenses mean for weblog authors were instructive for the community.Comments Off on VentureBlog and Bag and Baggage
Finland is the first country to take part in iCommons, our project to port the lawyer-readable versions of our licenses for use across the world. The Helsinki Institute for Information Technology has produced a first draft of the Finnish licenses and will lead the process from a public discussion list hosted on our site. The process will be much like our other community-based developments, such as the sampling license.
Up next: Japan.
