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.

Marshall McLuhan and Norman Mailer: Artists, Patterns and Morality

Vodpod videos no longer available.

more about “ Norman Mailer and Marshall McLuhan D…“, posted with vodpod


A debate in 1968 that is still relevant today.

Probably the best thirty minutes you could spend this week is hearing these two giants exchange their thoughts.

I agree with McLuhan’s foresight regarding the ascent of the role of the artist to integrate new good patterns on behalf of the global village. I also agree with Mailer’s foresight regarding the ascent of the role of the artist to denigrate new bad patterns on behalf of the global village. This is the crux of their differences and amusingly, they argue past one another.
