As a bit of end of the week fun, I thought I’d highlight the amazing remix culture that’s building up around the ABC’s user generated site, Pool.
Thanks to the strong creative ethos, Pool is rapidly becoming the largest source of CC-licensed, reusable and remixable material in Australia.
From the Pool blog:
Next layer, anyone?”
I whole-heartedly concur.
The survey forms part of the larger study into the definition non-commercial that CC announced a while ago. With the growing use of the ‘non-commercial’ term in online licences (and not just CC licences – it’s even on the PM’s website), it’s becoming more and more important to try to pin down a common understanding of exactly what it means.
So CC is asking its community to help out by taking a few minutes to responding to this questionnaire on the topic. All responses are anonymous, and no personal data is collected. The questionnaire will stay up til 7 December. If you have any questions, you can email them to email@example.com.
If you’ve always wanted to have your say on one of the hottest issues facing the free culture and web 2.0 communities, now’s your chance.
Just a quick note to tell everyone to mark 16 December in their calendar – CCau is having a party!
CC’s 6th birthday is a couple of days later, so we thought we’d take the opportunity to celebrate, bond and see the year out in style.
It’s going to be a CC film night, held at Lock and Load in West End, Brisbane. We’re still working on the program, but it will definitely feature local and international films, including documentaries on CC, animations, user-generated films and a few randoms we’ll throw in.
The whole thing is free – though we’ll be encouraging people to donate to CC’s fundraising campaign (which finishes 31 December, so everyone get donating).
More details to come. Look forward to seeing everyone! Continue reading
CCau’s sister project, Remix My Lit, just seems to be going from high profile media event to high profile media event.
After featuring at the Melbourne Writer’s Festival, the Brisbane Writer’s Festival and the This Is Not Art (TINA) festival in Newcastle, this week RML was the subject of a great episode of ABC Radio National’s The Book Show.
