In conjunction with Jesse Dylan’s original “A Shared Culture,” we are excited to present a short video explicating our sister project, Science Commons. Since “scientists are the ultimate remixers”, there needs to be an easy way for them to share and distribute upstream data. Just as Dylan did in “A Shared Culture” he puts the Creative Commons system into action by punctuating the interview footage with dozens of photos that have been offered to the public for use under CC licenses.
In September 2006, Wired and Flavorpill hosted a sold-out concert in New York with all proceeds donated to Creative Commons. The show celebrated creative reuse and featured mash-up/remix artist Girl Talk, DJ/producer Diplo, and experimental pop supergroup Peeping Tom. Missing Pieces created this mini-documentary about the event, which also features Lawrence Lessig and Chris Anderson. (Licensed under CC BY-NC).
