blinkenlights stereoscope: fotos und kurze videos


mittlerweile liegt das blinkenlights stereoscope projekt schon fast zwei monate zurueck und ich warte ja immer noch gespannt auf das documentation video bzw. das video von der blinkenlights symphony. um die vorfreude weiterhin aufrecht zu erhalten und die wartezeit etwas zu verkuerzen habe ich auf flickr ein paar fotosets zusammengesucht:

“james boyle – the public domain” for free

james boyle ist mit seinem buch “the public domain” einigen anderen autoren gefolgt, die auch ihre werke unter einer creative commons lizenz veroeffentlicht haben. ein kurzer auschnitt:

Instead, I argue that precisely because we are in the information age, we need a movement—akin to the environmental movement—to preserve the public domain. The explosion of industrial technologies that threatened the environment also taught us to recognize its value. The explosion of information technologies has precipitated an intellectual land grab; it must also teach us about both the existence and the value of the public domain. This enlightenment does not happen by itself. The environmentalists helped us to see the world differently, to see that there was such a thing as “the environment” rather than just my pond, your forest, his canal. We need to do the same thing in the information environment.

We have to “invent” the public domain before we can save it.
The one piece of advice I would offer is to make sure that you really talk it through with everyone at the press and get them to understand the way the web works. While university presses might want to experiment only with a few titles, when it comes to those titles they need fully to embrace the idea — creating an excellent website for the book (or allowing the author to do so), allowing multiple formats of the book to be made available (pdf, html etc), being excited rather than horrified if the book gets mentioned on a blog and downloads spike. The last thing you want is a publisher who has grudgingly agreed to a Creative Commons license but who then sabotages every attempt to harness the openness it allows.
