This is a brilliant visual presentation.

Note how icons are used with minimal animation to convey the message.

Creative Commons: Proposed Protection Categories

logo-creative-commons

Right now, Facebook members are campaigning for Facebook/Creative Commons integration.

I fully support this.

I think facebooks credibility would go through the roof.

I think creative commons would become the defacto standard of content protection.

I think everyone on the web would exercise freedom of expression with more confidence knowing they own their expression.

However, I think creative commons should change its conditions to make it more accessible.

I propose the following, based on the International System of Units

who: anonymous/originator/derivator

what: unit/series/collection

when: once/duration/forever

where: private/group/public

why: loss/balance/profit

how: as-is/constructive/destructive

how much: one/two/many

That should satisfy everyone.

I have forwarded this proposal to Creative Commons.

In an earlier post I created a set of button icons for my blog.

This exercise revealed to me a simple way to illustrate the model I have been working on.

Over the next several posts I am going to be introducing conceptual areas using versions of the above seven button icons.

For artists, I want to show there are a consistent set of metaphors.

For analysts, I want to show there are a consistent set of physics.

For designers, I want to show there are a consistent set of trends.

For engineers, I want to show there are a consistent set of structures

For servers, I want to show that there are a consistent set of processes.

For producers, I want to show there are a consistent set of deliverables.

For qualitors, I want to show that there are a consistent set of metrics.

All these button sets will make each button available as a PNG for copy and download.

All these buttons are protected by a creative commons license as noted in the left sidebar of this blog.

At the end of this series I will present all of the buttons sets as a whole set.

Hope you enjoy.
