Be The Media: Independent Media Handbook Featuring CC Chapter

Cameron Parkins, January 11th, 2010

BeTheMedia2008webBe The Media is a book for anyone looking to create, distribute, and engage with digital media. Compiled by David Mathison, the book features articles on how individuals are taking control of their own media production and distribution (Part One: The Personal Media Renaissance) and how communities are developing around these producers to showcase their work (Part Two: The Community Media Renaissance).

The book features a chapter on Creative Commons and the Open Source movement, with essays from former CC General Counsel Mia Garlick and Free Software Foundation President Richard Stallman. This chapter, along with nine others, is released under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-Share Alike license.

You can download the chapter on CC for free (registration required) and purchase the entire book at Be The Media‘s website – a recommended read for those invested in new methods of online creation and distribution.

    I’m currently updating my bookmarks and resources around CC and definitely hope people find it useful. Will you be making it available via Amazon and Apple as an ebook? I’m currently finishing up my book and having fun but hating the writing.
