      David Bollier's talk is tonight.


      On Monday, May 18th 7:00pm-9:00pm, David Bollier will speak about the
      themes of his new book, Viral Spiral: How the Commoners Built a Digital
      Republic of Their Own (New Press). The book is the first comprehensive
      history of the "free culture" movement and "sharing economy" that is
      empowering ordinary people, disrupting markets and changing politics and
      culture. Bollier will talk about the rise of free and open source
      software, Creative Commons licenses, the new forms of non-market
      creativity (Wikipedia, blogs, remix music, videos) as well as fascinating
      innovations in open science, open education and "open business models."

      David Bollier is a leading American activist, author, blogger and
      proponent of "free culture" on the Internet and the commons. He is an
      editor of Onthecommons.org and Senior Fellow at the USC Annenberg School
      for Communication. Bollier is also co-founder of Public Knowledge, a
      Washington, D.C., organization that advocates for the public's stake in
      the Internet and copyright law, and the author of Silent Theft, Brand Name
      Bullies, and four other books. He lives in Amherst, Massachusetts.

      More about the book can be found at the website www.viralspiral.cc. More
