There are too few nonprofit organizations like CC fighting for the digital commons – support our vital leadership with an end of year contribution. Donate today!
Voting for the NetSqaured Innovation Awards, previously blogged here, runs today through April 14. Update: Voting has been extended through April 16 at 5PM PDT.
You must register and vote for five to ten social enterprises. Twenty winners will receive expenses for two staff members to attend N2Y2 and participate in the NetSquared Technology Innovation Fund.
Here are four projects with free culture connections to strongly consider voting for:
- Open Community Radio: KRUU-LP 100.1 FM. Taking community radio to the next level with 99% locally produced content, running on 100% open source, promoting CC licensed content, and with a fantastic free culture interview show. More about KRUU in this previous post.
- Telecommunications and Microfinances for The Poor and The Poorest. A project of Free Culture Peru.
- OpenStreetMap. Street maps and other geodata under CC Attribution-ShareAlike.
- Open Source, Open Standards Video. Why this is important.
Addendum: In other voting news, Wikitravel (see our featured commoner interview with Wikitravel’s founders) is nominated for a Webby award in the travel category. Several other CC-friendly sites are also nominated, including Flickr in many categories. Anyone with some time to look at a lot of sites can vote. If you do, cast one for Wikitravel!Posted 09 April 2007
