Looking forward to this event next week. I wonder if it will be online? 😎
On the morning of 12 March, the Web@30 event at CERN will kick off celebrations around the world. Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Robert Cailliau and other Web pioneers and experts will share their views on the challenges and opportunities brought by the Web.
You’ll learn a little about what Creative Commons is, how to find the right type of CC license for your content, and some reasons why you should do this. It’s all pretty easy, and helps make the web a friendlier place.
Writers: I’m really interested in knowing the extent of Creative Commons remixing of text. Have you ever “remixed” or repurposed Creative Commons content? What did you do, and what was the goal? Any interesting responses, from the original creator or your readers?
Other questions: When do you insist on reserving all your copyright rights? When is it right to share your words, as well as your ideas?
Go read my piece, and if you have answers to the questions above, respond in the Comments below.
Starting November 21, 2016, you can have a website with a *.blog address (instead of .com, or whatever). This story offers some ideas for why you might just want to get in line for this opportunity.
WordCamp Milwaukee is coming
While writing this story, I decided to send this topic as a possible presentation at WordCamp Milwaukee. If the talk is accepted, come bring your questions to the UW-Milwaukee School of Continuing Education on the weekend of September 17-18!
If you’ve got your own idea for a talk about anything WordPress, send it in by early morning Thursday, August 25. See this post for some ideas, this post to urge you — yes, you, and then fill out the form here.
