Today might be a good day to look at the bright side of 'teh internet' life. Lawrence Lessig
(author of Free Culture
), Jimmy Wales
(founder of Wikipedia), various advocates of the Free Culture network organisation
and others are all meeting at the iCommons Summit in Rio
to discuss Creative Commons
, open networks, non-restrictives licenses, global Digital Commons and the fact that maybe, in 2006, 'Sharing is Daring'
. A similar summit has been taking place earlier this month in Thailand, under the name of Asia Commons
. I for one thinks it's extremely exciting to see all kind of artists, collectives and record labels using the CC licenses for the work they publish. After all, we now all live in a 'Remixed Culture', since everything we ever use was once part of something else, wasn't it? openDemocracy
has been publishing a solid set of articles & a debate
about the topic.
