Creative Commons talk - NY - Oct 13
On Friday, 10/13, I'll be giving a low key artist talk at a Creative Commons salon. Paul Slocum will also be presenting. He's in town from Dallas, where he also runs the And/Or Gallery, but I should really say he's in town from The World, which he tours as one half of the very awesome Treewave duo. He's setting up his solo show at Vertex List (from whence the above image comes--it opens 10/14, as mentioned below), and will be making a star appearance at the premiere of the 8 Bit documentary, this Saturday, at MOMA.
He's awesome, and so is Creative Commons! They are a nonprofit aiding and inspiring creativity through the events, tools, and licenses related to copyright alternatives and remix cutlure. I'm sure they describe themselves better, so check them out. Their salons are lots of fun. I spoke at one in San Francisco, this summer, and had a great time. This one is at Nublu, in the East Village, It will be really low key and there will be drinking before, during, and after--so no panel discussion leg cramps at this one. It starts at 8pm, leaving you plenty of time for Friday the 13th festivities, afterwards. Stay tuned for more info on this one. It would be fun to see you. More here.
Update: Please note the updated time. This starts at 8pm, rather than 6pm, leaving you time to get there after work, since I know all my friends work late on Fridays.
2nd Update: Evan Harper, of Eyebeam is going to join the lineup! Cool!
Also, a shout-out to Fred Benenson, who put the event together and is, among other noble things, a maker of awesome halloween costumes.
