The CC Salon is a monthly event focused on building a community of artists and developers around Creative Commons licenses, standards, and technology. The first event is set for San Francisco with intention for the idea to replicate in other locations internationally. Have look at All Salons around the world ...
The format for each event is to encourage loose networking amongst participants with 2-3 brief presentations from individuals and groups developing interesting projects that relate to the Creative Commons.
Here is more from the blog posting:
Don't miss the next CC Salon at shinesf from 6-9 PM on Wednesday, November 8 in San Francisco. This salon features famed
blogger and SF Bay Guardian writer, Annalee Newitz. Also, Homebrew Mobile Club's, Matthew Hamrick and other HB Mobile Club members will be on hand to discuss his project's "Complete Open Phone," a project to produce open source cellphones with CC licensed plans and content accessible on them. Finally, Wendell Davis is going to present the new on-line music editor and mash-up community, Splice. And, just added to the dynamic line-up is Steve from Alive in Baghdad, an amazing videoblog of interviews and stories by Iraqis directly from the streets of Iraq, bypassing corporate media. Throughout the salon the Kleptones are going to spice up the evening with music and interludes.
So come on out on Wednesday, bring a big stack of business cards, some cash for drinks, and lets talk about the Commons. This is the last salon of the year, as our regular 2nd-Wednesday December salon is combined with a special birthday party for Creative Commons on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15. Stay tuned for more info.
