As many of you will know I worked at Creative Commons for 5 years from 2012 to 2017. Given my strong affiliation with CC I received a special invitation to attend the 20th anniversary in-person event in San Francisco and have decided to attend. I look forward to seeing colleagues I worked directly with during that time, getting to know CC’s current staff and work, and hopefully having the opportunity to provide some input into its future.
If anyone else is attending in person let me know. Welcome connecting.
Should be fun!
Thanks Alan, and maybe just to be clear it’s not like I’m being funded or anything. I have to pay my own way including a ticket to attend, but still happy to be going.
I’m in discussions with several people about the format for the CC anniversary event which appears to be mostly around being a means to do fundraising. Hoping to see some side events emerge that tap into the collective historical CC brain trust for ideas on the future.
Happy to consider report outs about the event but not sure about a Twitter Space but let me respond more completely once I have a better sense of what the event entails.
And as well seeing the commissioned posters for the event (which will be useful for anyone planning open education related events and projects)
We got to see a preview as well of the one minute high energy celebration video that will be shared (hopefully Nate sends it here) once they sort out what might be 10 minutes of attributions!
It was also neat to see the Bookdash project shared by one of the participants. And @Weblearning demonstrated his deftness at using his analog archives by pulling out a copy of an old Wired Magazine article Nate referred to.
These are just some scattered things I remember, for others that were there (or still are), please add any other notes of interest.
It was so great seeing everyone! I echo @cogdog’s appreciation, @NateAngell. So many wonderful resources shared, and I loved the spirit of comaraderie. Onward to Open as default! (And I am now inspired to revisit my Luscious Jackson collection. Luscious Jackson - Naked Eye - YouTube)
