Been looking for a good book to read lately? Margot, one of our Summer ’06 interns, has put the finishing touches on a page of the CC wiki devoted to listing the various books that have been published under a Creative Commons license. The page is split into categories. The first, more conventional types of books – being “works over 35,000 words that are or have been commercially available in hardcopy and have an ISBN,” both fiction and non-fiction. Then there is also a section highlighting CC-licensed works on Lulu (who we recently featured), including the always fun “55 Ways to Have Fun With Google” by Philipp Lenssen, which is licensed to the public under the CC BY-NC-SA. And finally, a category for “online books” such as “GAM3R 7H30RY” by McKenzie Wark which introduces some of us to the concept of a “networked book.”
