Dear GV, From the iSummit

It has been a year since we met in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and the community of iCommons has grown not only in number, but in its complexity and its importance as a network of people working together to build a community of freedom – to create, to use, to share and to discuss the future of the movement.

The venue is Dubrovnik, a beautiful city in Croatia, and the activity started at 10:00 a.m. The events can be followed on Second Life and anyone can ask questions that will be answered live by the speakers. It has four parallel streams, 1. Peer production: Legal and architectural norms: How can people share the global commons?, 2. Peer production: Social, technological and economical norms, 3. Open Education and 4. Practical Workshops.

Personalities such as Larry Lessig, Jimmy Wales, Jonathan Zittrain and Yohai Benkler will be the speakers at the Keynote Sessions.

Great projects such as Jamendo, Magnatune, Loftwork and Starwreck Studios have already discussed with the iSummiters about their models, which all of them use Creative Common Licenses. People from all over the world will be together until Sunday to share their views and experiences, and then apply it back home to create alternatives to copyright law.

  • I wasn’t the previous year in Brazil. I’m integrating with all the passion and illusion. I’m taking new ideas for future works in my University. The iSummit07 is almost finished, but we’ll be in contact.
