Creative Commons Salon discussion, SF 6/14
If you're planning to be near the Bay Area on Weds, June 14, please save the date for this Creative Commons discussion salon in which I'm participating, alongside some very important and interesting participants in the CC community. I'll be talking about my own work, which involves heavy sampling, and participating in a wider discussion about copyright issues. Details below (via CC) and more to come:
It's time for another CC Salon in San Francisco. Please join us on Wednesday, June 14, from 6-9pm (don't worry if you're late; there will be stuff happening all night) at Shine, (1337 Mission Street between 9th and 10th Streets). Note: Since Shine is a bar, this month's Salon is only open to people who are 21 and older.
CC Salon is a free, casual monthly get-together focused on conversation, networking, and presentations from people or groups who are developing projects that relate to Creative Commons licensing, content, and tools. Please invite your friends, colleagues, and anyone you know who might be interested in drinks and discussion.
We've got a terrific line-up of speakers:
- RickPrelinger (Prelinger Archives), who will screen the film Panorama Ephemera and discuss using the Internet Archive as its primary means of distribution.
- Victor Stone, who will talk about the development of the music remix community ccMixter.
- Marisa Olson, artist and Curator at Large for Rhizome.org, who will present some of her recent work and discuss sampling, remixing, and licensing art.
- Amit Asaravala, Manager of Editorial Content & Strategy for Techsoup.org, who will talk about content distribution in the nonprofit world.
Additionally, Quarterbar will be spinning a mix of CC-licensed music.
You can track this event on upcoming.org. We look forward to seeing you there!
