OpenWetWare: Ανοιχτή Επιστήμη για όλους με άδειες Creative Commons!

CC Greece, July 19, 2012 04:44 PM   License: Αναφορά Δημιουργού 3.0 Ελλάδα

spacer Σας παρουσιάζουμε το OpenWetWare. To BioBricks Foundation σε μια προσπάθεια να ενισχύσει τον διαμοιρασμό της πληροφορίας, της τεχνογνωσίας και της σοφίας ανάμεσα σε επιστήμονες, ερευνητές και ομάδες που σχετίζονται με την βιολογία δημιούργησε το OpenWetWare.

Πρόκειται για ένα ιστότοπο όπου εργαστήρια, ιδιώτες και ερευνητικές ομάδες θα έχουν την δυνατότητα να παρέχουν πληροφορίες για το ποιοι είναι και το ερευνητικό έργο που διατελούν προσφέροντας παράλληλα απευθείας συνδέσμους προς τις δικές τους σελίδες. Ουσιαστικά, θα λειτουργεί ως ένα μεγάλο παγκόσμιο ευρετήριο για ομάδες, επιστήμονες και οργανισμούς που ασχολούνται με την Βιολογία. Παράλληλα, το OpenWetWare θα προσφέρει την δυνατότητα σε όλους αυτούς να συνεργάζονται και να επικοινωνούν το έργο τους μεταξύ τους εύκολα και γρήγορα.

Μια άλλη εξαιρετική δυνατότητα που παρέχει ο ιστότοπος είναι ότι φιλοξενεί στις σελίδα του ευρετήριο με μαθήματα και σχολές που ασχολούνται με την Βιολογία από Πανεπιστήμια σε όλο τον κόσμο. Όποιος ενδιαφέρεται μπορεί να μπει και να ψάξει ανάμεσα στα διάφορα Εκπαιδευτικά Ιδρύματα που τον ενδιαφέρουν και πολλές φορές ακόμα και να κατεβάσει όλο το πρόγραμμα σπουδών με σχόλια και σημειώσεις.

Απώτερος στόχος είναι να γίνει το OpenWetWare μια χρήσιμη διαδικτυακή πήλη με χρήσιμες πληροφορίες σε παγκόσμιο επίπεδο για το καλό της έρευνας στην βιολογία. Το OpenWetWare σας καλεί να το επισκεφτείτε και να συμμετέχετε στην εκδοτική διαδικασία του με όποιο τρόπο μπορείτε καθώς επίσης να ενημερώσετε για το δικό σας εργαστήριο, Πανεπιστήμιο ή ερευνητικό έργο ώστε να φιλοξενηθείτε στις σελίδες του με ένα απλό κλικ. Καθώς το openWetWare λειτουργεί ως wiki το μόνο που χρειάζεστε είναι μια απλή εγγραφή και ξεκινάτε κατευθείαν την διαδικασία του editing. Επίσης πρέπει να σημειωθεί ότι το περιεχόμενο του OpenWetWare διατίθεται κατ’ επιλογήν με τις άδειες Creative Commons – Αναφορά Δημιουργού – Παρόμοια Διανομή ή GNU Free Documentation License Γίνεται αντιληπτό ότι μια τέτοια διαδικτυακή πύλη που στόχο έχει τον διαμοιρασμό και την διακίνηση της πληροφορίας και της γνώσης δεν θα μπορούσε να χρησιμοποιεί κάτι άλλο πέρα από την Ανοιχτή Αδειοδότηση.

CC Netherlands, July 19, 2012 08:57 AM   License: Naamsvermelding 3.0 Nederland

In maart van dit jaar werd een open competitie gelanceerd voor creatieve filmpjes die gebruik en potentie van open leermiddelen duidelijk maken. Afgelopen week werden de winnaars bekendgemaakt door Creative Commons, het Amerikaanse ministerie van Onderwijs en de Open Society Foundations. In totaal kwamen iets meer dan 60 inzendingen binnen die aan de voorwaarden voldeden. De winnaars komen uit Kaapstad, Zuid-Afrika.

Dit is de top drie:

1. Blinktower, creatief bureau uit Kaapstad, Zuid-Afrika

2. Laura Rachfalski, kunstenaar/fotografe uit Philadelphia, VS

3. Nadia Paolo Mireles Torres, Funktionell, Mexico

Free as in Software Freedom Law Shows

Mike Linksvayer, July 19, 2012 06:25 AM   License: CC0 1.0 Universal

In the latest Free as in Freedom podcast Karen Sandler and Bradley Kuhn play a recording of and discuss my FOSDEM law&policy presentation from back in February. The podcast covered all but one FOSDEM law&policy talk, see the archives.

I’m very happy with how this episode turned out. I managed to at least briefly include more points in a half hour than I recall having done, and Sandler and Kuhn manage to discuss far more of them than I would’ve hoped. Listen (ogg, mp3) and refer to slides (pdf, odp).

Further notes on two issues mentioned in the discussion follow.

Equality and Freedom

I’m glad that Sandler mentioned free software’s great equality story. But, I should say what I mean by that. I don’t primarily mean equal access, though that’s important. I mean contributing to reducing inequality of income, wealth, power. I’ve done precious little to articulate this, and I don’t know anyone else who has either, but there’s a reason it is the very first of my suggested considerations for future policy. Similarly, I think free software’s grand freedom story is not the proximate freedoms to run, study, modify, share software, but their role in protecting and promoting a free society. Again, much more needs to be said, provocatively (and that, critiqued, etc). Software freedom and nearby ought be claiming space in the commanding heights of political dialogue.

Hardware design licensing

I’m glad that Kuhn stated that he sees no reason for not using GPLv3 for hardware designs, and scoffs (privately, I suppose) at people making up new licenses for the same. As far as I know there are two papers that try to make the case for new hardware design licenses, and as far as I can tell they both fail. But, as far as I know no FLOSS establishment institution has proclaimed the correctness of using GPLv3 or a compatible license for hardware designs, nor explained why, nor reached out to open hardware folk when discussing new such licenses. How can this change? Perhaps such people should be alerted to copyleft-next. Perhaps I should be happy that hardware has been long ignored; one can imagine a universe with an equally twisted late 1990s vintage GNU FHL to accompany the GNU FDL.

Joke background

CC0, passports, and (a related one from Asheesh Laroia is told on the show) credit cards.

In 2009 Sandler and Kuhn interviewed me for the previous podcast, the Software Freedom Law Show. I did not blog about it then, but much of the discussion is probably still pertinent, if you wish to listen.

Developing Shared Resources in the CC Affiliate Network

Creative Commons, July 18, 2012 10:22 PM   License: Attribution 3.0 Unported

It has been a little over a month since I joined Creative Commons as Community Support Intern, and now that I’m in the thick of things, I wanted to share with you what I’m working on this summer.

Allow me to introduce myself. I am currently a Master’s student at Tufts University’s Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. Prior to undertaking graduate studies, I worked at the World Bank in Washington, D.C. I am very interested in the international open movement, and am hoping to apply what I learn this summer in the field of public policy.

At CC, I am working to support the international affiliate community. Currently, I am developing toolkits that will help CC country teams educate the public in more than seventy countries about the benefits and appropriate use of CC licenses.

The toolkits I’m working on at the moment cover CC license use in three important areas: government and public sector information, journalism and blogging, and new business models.

Government agencies collect and analyze huge amounts of information, developing databases and producing reports, all of which are funded by taxpayers. The use of CC licenses allows the information captured to freely flow among government agencies, as well as out to the nonprofit and private sectors, where it could be reused, built upon, and remixed in new and unexpected ways, maximizing the benefits for society at large.

In contrast, the journalism industry has already been in turmoil for the last decade as widespread adoption of the internet disrupted traditional business models for publishing news. However, new publication models are emerging, some taking advantage of the pre-cleared permissions contained in CC licenses to quickly disseminate information for maximum impact. Additionally, blogs, social media, and collaborative production platforms like Wikipedia have risen to become an important source of analysis, commentary, and even breaking news. Authors using these platforms frequently reuse text, photos, and videos from other sources, which may claim copyright for the materials. They must be educated about copyright as well as the advantages of using materials released under open content licenses in order to maximize creative expression within the existing framework of copyright law.

Finally, my goal in developing a toolkit on business models is to better inform CC license users about the new open business models that are emerging as internet platforms grow and develop. The message will be that choosing open content licenses for your work does not necessarily mean forgoing an opportunity to make money, and is in fact an important part of many online revenue models.

The toolkits will include information on how to use CC licenses in these spheres, frequently asked questions, relevant articles, case studies, videos, etc, and will be available for all users on the CC website, under a CC license, of course.

I would love for anyone who is interested to contribute by letting me know about materials that you know of or use regularly on these topics. Please e-mail me at info@creativecommons.org.

I will highlight materials that are especially high-quality or interesting in a future blog post.

Winners Announced! – Why Open Education Matters Video Competition

Creative Commons, July 18, 2012 07:00 AM   License: Attribution 3.0 Unported

Creative Commons, the U.S. Department of Education, and the Open Society Foundations are pleased to announce the winners of the Why Open Education Matters video competition. The competition was launched in March 2012 to solicit creative videos that clearly communicate the use and potential of free, high-quality Open Educational Resources — or “OER” — and describe the benefits and opportunities these materials create for teachers, students, and schools everywhere. U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced the competition with a video on the Why Open Education Matters website. The competition received over 60 qualified entries. The winning videos are displayed below.

First Prize

Congratulations to Blinktower, an extremely talented creative agency based in Cape Town, South Africa.

Second Prize

Congratulations to Laura Rachfalski and her great team. Laura is an artist, videographer and photographer from Philadelphia.

Third Prize

Congratulations to Nadia Paola Mireles Torres and her collaborators from the design firm Funktionell. It’s also amazing to see that Nadia has made all the video assets available for download and reuse under CC BY!

The prize winners were decided by a panel of distinguished experts including Davis Guggenheim, Nina Paley, Liz Dwyer, Anya Kamenetz, James Franco, Angela Lin, and Mark Surman. Due to technical problems with the public voting on the Why Open Education Matters website which prevented some persons from submitting a vote, the third prize video has been awarded by the judging panel.

In addition to the winning videos, all of the qualifying videos are available for viewing on the competition website, whyopenedmatters.org. All of the videos are licensed CC BY, which means others may distribute, remix, and build upon them, even commercially, as long as they give credit to the creators.

Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to everyone who submitted a video for sharing their creativity, talents, and passion in helping explain and promote Open Educational Resources.

Jonathan WORTH / 倫敦( 更多資訊:www.jonathanworth.com )

英國攝影家 Jonathan Worth 的作品吊掛在倫敦的國家肖像美術館中。他在英國 Coventry University 教授攝影。他拍攝過柯林弗斯、瑞秋杭特、裘德洛、希斯萊傑等演員。他和許多新興攝影家,正為了數位時代中專業影像創作者具可持續性的工作實踐進行實驗。

Worth 就像其他專業人士,總是會花上數小時時間瀏覽網路以保護他的作品不被盜用,但為此而浪費的時間令他不悅。「後來我遇到了科幻小說作家 Cory Doctorow,他靠著把書贈送出去而賺錢。」 Worth 說,「有一次為他拍照時,他提議在合約上進行一項實驗。」

他們在該影像上用了創用 CC 姓名標示授權 (BY license),在線上免費分享高解析度的版本,同時以各種價格與格式獨家地販售簽過名的印刷版本。「最貴的反而賣得最好,」 Worth 表示,「沒有人聽說過我,但是他們卻會付錢買我的作品。」

Doctorow 給 Worth 上了一堂關於數位新世界和人們數位習性的課。「現在我知道我可以借助免費用戶的力量。就像是在瓶子裡留了紙條,讓潮汐將其散佈到各個地方,你可以運用這股力量。」
