From Open Source To The Arts
Presented by the Linux Public
In the spirit of the open source movement, LPBN has brought together
representatives from three innovative independent media organizations and
a computer technology training project. Questions of providing public
access via alternative and conventional media distribution systems will be
explored. Presentations bind the technical, activist, and creative
aspects spontaneously arising from the open source environment of Linux.
Included will be a presentation by Raymond Steding of LPBN.ORG on the
process of releasing original works under creative commons licensing and
then how to make efficient use of each of these organization's
media distribution systems.
Presentation by LPBN:
"To weave the spirit of open source throughout the social fabric."
