Agoric Aesthetics & Philosophy

Agorizing aesthetics and philosophy means producing them using market pricing mechanisms. The model for this is the market-based software of agoric computing. The advantage of such a system is that it incentivises both production and efficiency. By internalizing market forces,…Read more ›

Examining deficiencies of and limitations on data sharing

Τα ανοιχτής πρόσβασης επιστημονικά περιοδικά κερδίζουν περισσότερη επισκεψιμότητα και αναφορές

Planet CC -

Τα επιστημονικά άρθρα που έχουν ανοιχτή πρόσβαση διαβάζονται και αναφέρονται πιο συχνά από ό, τι τα άρθρα που είναι διαθέσιμα μόνο σε συνδρομητές. Το  Research Information Network ανέλυσε την ηλεκτρονική επισκεψιμότητα σε περισσότερα από 700 άρθρα που δημοσιεύονται στο επιστημονικό περιοδικό Nature Communications κατά τους πρώτους έξι μήνες του 2013. Η Επιτροπή διαπίστωσε ότι, μετά από 180 ημέρες, τα άρθρα Continue Reading

Examining deficiencies of and limitations on data sharing

Creativecommons.org -

Whether patients, or part of traffic, or exercising or simply walking with one of the behavioral trackers du jour, we are constantly giving data about ourselves and our surroundings to data collecters with few returns. From privacy regulations to bureaucratic barriers to collecting and locking up information just in case it might create monetary value in the future, there are a multitude of barriers between those who collect information and those who want to use it.

With support from Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), we are launching two projects exploring different aspects that often get in the way of easy sharing of citizen-sourced information.

Sharing v. Privacy

Original image by Puneet Kishor released under a CC0 Public Domain Dedication

In collaboration with the Institute for Human Genetics and EngageUC at UCSF, and Personal Genome Project at Harvard University, we will explore the practical, ethical and legal implications of emphasizing benefits of sharing over the need for privacy at a workshop planned for Spring 2015 in Washington DC. A few of the questions to be tackled at the workshop: What if, instead of emphasizing the imperative of protecting privacy, we emphasized the potential benefits from sharing? Would most patients agree to let their information be shared? more →

Sensored City

Original image by Puneet Kishor released under a CC0 Public Domain Dedication

Partnering with Manylabs, a San Francisco-based sensor tools and education nonprofit, and Urban Matter, Inc., a Brooklyn-based design studio, and in collaboration with the City of Louisville, Kentucky, and Propeller Health, maker of a mobile platform for respiratory health management, we will design, develop and install a network of sensor-based hardware that will collect environmental information at high temporal and spatial scales and store it in a software platform designed explicitly for storing and retrieving such data.

Further, we will design, create and install a public data art installation that will be powered by the data we collect thereby communicating back to the public what has been collected about them. more →

淺談公眾出資研究與美國FIRST法案

Planet CC -

所謂的公眾出資成果(publicly-funded)指的是,政府運用人民納稅之金錢而進行的研究、分析等產出的成果,例如,給予大學教授研究經費,而教授們的學術研究成果即屬之。 從邏輯上而言,公眾出資研究成果這類的資源應該要提供給大眾,然而實際上,在大眾被授權接近這些素材前通常他們需要支付多次費用。不論從邏輯上,甚至道德觀點而言,大眾都應該要有機會接近經由其納稅的錢所資助而得之研究成果。 越來越多世界各地的政府都在分享大量的公眾出資研究、資料及教育素材。但關鍵問題在 於,這些管理公眾出資素材取得與分配的政策是否能確保人民受有這些政策服務的最大利益?當前大眾並無法輕易接觸該等資源,但若是這些公眾出資資源被要求使 用公眾授權條款時,將會大量的增加對於這類素材廣泛接近並再利用的機會... 2014-07-24T16:00:00Z sunlight

Fotopedia closes, but CC-licensed photos live on

Trung Dangy / CC BY-NC-SA

If you’re a fan of photo-and-knowledge-sharing community Fotopedia, you’ve likely heard that the site is closing this Sunday, August 10. When Creative Commons heard the news, we contacted Fotopedia to ask if there were some way that we could help save all of the Creative Commons–licensed photos on the site. Now, we’re working together with the staff at Fotopedia to create a new archive of all of that content. At the same time, our friends at Archive Team are creating a copy of the entire Fotopedia website.

Here at CC, we’ve been big fans of Fotopedia for a long time. The site elegantly mixes together content from Flickr, Wikipedia, and other sources in a way that’s only possible thanks to CC licenses. And over the years, Fotopedia developed an amazing community of people curating all of that content into highly entertaining, visually rich albums.

It’s fitting that all of that work will live on in the new archive. Fotopedia has always been a great example of the power of the decentralized web. Just like Fotopedia brought new life to great photos from Flickr, the archive will bring new life to great photos from Fotopedia.

If you’d like to know when the archive is open, subscribe to our mailing list.. If you have any questions, email us at info@creativecommons.org.

Creative Commons salutes Fotopedia for its work as a leader in online content-sharing. We wish Jean-Marie Hullot and his team all the best on their future projects.

Proprietary profitability as a key metric for open access and open source

Planet CC -

Glyn Moody in Beyond Open Standards and Open Access: Like open source, open access is definitely winning, even if there is some desperate rearguard action by the publishers, who are trying to protect their astonishing profit margins – typically 30-40%. No doubt open source and open access have progressed, but the competition maintaining astonishing profit […]
