CC Salon, San Francisco
August 9, 6-9pm
Shine (1337 Mission Street, between 9th and 10th Streets)
CC Salon SF is now being presented in conjunction with CopyNight SF!
This month's line-up:
* The Public Library of Science (PLoS) is a not-for-profit organization comprised of scientists and physicians committed to making medical and scientific literature a public resource. Hemai Parthasarathy (Managing Editor of PLoS Biology) and Barbara Cohen (Executive Editor of PLoS Journals) will discuss PLoS's mission, its publications, and some ideas about the future of scientific publishing.
* Digg is a popular user-powered news site with more than 400,000 registered users. Owen Byrne (Co-founder and Senior Software Engineer) will talk about the site's history, its unique features, and its use of CC licensing.
* Magnatune is the online record label that distributes its catalog under a Creative Commons license, splits album sales directly with artists, and takes a vocal stance against DRM. Magnatune founder John Buckman will discuss how the company makes money by using CC licensing, as well as how the CC and open source movements are helping to change the music industry for the better.
Also: Magnatune's Shannon Coulter will be DJing a set of music from the label's catalogue -- come hear what all the excitement is about!
