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.
