Creative Commons is represented this
week as part of the first ever Open Source Pavilion, which features Open Source Applications, at the world’s largest Graphic Conference, Siggraph. The booth this year is set-up by Ton Rosendaal,
the project lead of the CC-BY 2.5 licensed Elephant’s Dream Open Source movie and Blender, a 3D application. There is participation around the projects Blender, GNOME, Gimp, Creative Commons, Jahshaka, Uni-verse, Inkscape, and several others.
Please stop by booth #1527 all week to discuss Creative Commons licensing, how
you can plug into development, and other information about the Commons. Here is a link for free tickets to the exhibition floor. Also, you can check the Blender website for a day-by-day overview of the conference with pictures, video, and other information.
This conference participation comes on the heals of the previous week’s
Desktop Developer Conference in Ottawa, Canada, where Jon Phillips (myself)
presented “May I See Your License?” which looked at licensing creative works, how to participate in the Creative Commons Developer Community, and the various software CC develops to support licensing.
Also, please attend the upcoming Linux World Expo in San Francisco August 14-17 and don’t forget that there is a CC Salon next wednesday from 6-9 PM.
UPDATE: Please track the next CC Salon on our post at upcoming.org. The event next week features Public Library of Science, Magnatune’s John Buckman, and the popular social bookmarking site, Digg. Come on out for a fun evening of conversation, drinks and networking.
