Summer of Code student proposals open May 1

Mike Linksvayer, April 26th, 2006

As previously announced Creative Commons is participating in Google’s Summer of Code as a mentoring organization. Please visit our summer of code ideas page and if you’re a student, start working on a proposal.

An over-the-top ideal proposal would include support for RDFa, remixing, and affordances for educational and worldwide (not just wealthy regions) use. Ability to release under an open source license and incorporation of some Creative Commons affordance are necessary. However, a solid proposal is far more important than buzzword compliance. Please read Google’s Summer of Code Student FAQ and advice from past participants as you create your proposal. Good luck!

Coincidentally Chris DiBona, Google’s Open Source Programs Manager, will be speaking at the next CC Salon San Francsico on May 10, two days after the SoC student proposal submission period ends.
