Creative Commons (CC), KALW, and Chicago Public Radio’s Sound Opinions are pleased to present Chicago Tribune music critic and author Greg Kot in conversation with music journalist David Downs. Kot's new book, Ripped: How the Wired Generation Revolutionized Music, explores the changing face of the music industry. Downs and Kot will discuss the book, as well as how digital sharing and participatory culture are shaping how music is created and consumed. Audience questions and discussion will follow the conversation.
Light refreshments will be provided, and since we rely on the generosity of our community to keep us afloat, we’ll be accepting donations for CC at the door.
CC Salons are informal events focused on building a community of artists, developers, and creators of all kinds around Creative Commons licenses, standards, and technology. Whether you're familiar with Creative Commons or are brand new to the concepts behind it, we hope you can join us at the salon!
