If you are in or near Washington, DC next week, specifically on Wednesday the 29th, and a user or supporter of the Creative Commons, consider checking out an event for the new book, The Power of Open. It is one of six events on six continents being coordinated to celebrate the book’s launch.
The DC event is being hosted by my employer, the New America Foundation, and will feature a couple of my colleagues, Tom Glaisyer and Rebecca MacKinnon. I’ll be in attendance for at least part of the evening.
The book looks fascinating, offering cases studies across many disciplines for how Creative Commons licenses are being used successfully. Sounds like an excellent reference to bolster the usual set of high profile instances commonly used by free culture advocates. I hope the event offers some highlights of the work that went into the book and a chance to learn more.
