Today I’ve been given permission to announce that I’m working on the Creative Commons project as an RDF Advisor. I can’t say what I’m doing except that it involves RDF and I’m advising them on it. Details on what the project is about are in the article above. They’re very kindly flying me to O’Reilly’s Emerging Technology Conference (what the P2P hackers bitterly call “Emerging Fads”) where the project will be making its debut splash. BTW, it looks to be a very exciting conference. I put together a long list of people I’m looking forward to seeing.
Some choice quotes:
Stanford law professor Lawrence Lessig’s Creative Commons intends to produce “flexible, customizable intellectual-property licenses that artists, writers, programmers and others can obtain free of charge to legally define what constitutes acceptable uses of their work.”
