Eric Steuer, March 9th, 2009


If you’re in Los Angeles, please consider stopping by the GOOD Space (6824 Melrose Ave., LA, CA 90038) this Wednesday, March 11, at 7pm for an event that GOOD is hosting in conjunction with Knight Pulse called GOOD Community Leaders.

Representatives from five social initiatives will offer short presentations about their work and talk about some of their ideas for expanding the reach of their respective projects. I’ll be talking about Creative Commons – specifically about the importance of effectively communicating CC’s work to the general public. Edgar Arceneaux (Watts House Project), Erik Knudson and Kelly Coyne (Urban Homestead), Alissa Walker (Design LA), and Sonja Rasula (Unique LA) will also be presenting.

Admission is free. Red Stripe is providing free beer, and the event is 21+. RSVP is required; more info is available on GOOD’s blog.

Interviews with Creative Commons: Jamie, Eric & Fred

Fred Benenson, January 13th, 2009

A couple interviews with CC board and staff have surfaced in the last week or two. BBC Radio 4 interviewed Creative Commons Board Chair James Boyle about the public domain and how Creative Commons helps enrich the environment of the mind. Before Jamie’s interview, the Beeb chats with Chris Anderson talks about his new book FREE and the business models he’s been researching.

In December, our Creative Director, Eric Steuer talked with Dog and Pony of The BNET Business Network. The Knight Foundation’s Knight Pulse also interviewed Eric about how grantees can use our licenses in their projects.

I also answered some questions from regarding how journalists can use CC licenses in their work. Finally, I chatted with Federal News Radio on Friday about Obama’s choice to use CC on, the recording of which you can download there.
