Unaware I was being video-taped, I was amused to find my talk at the DIY Video track at iSummit up on YouTube… this piece includes other presentations which were all quite amazing in fact!
Asking the question, what is the commons? A random selection of iSummit 2008 participants, Sapporo, Japan. Two short samplers from the forth-coming micro-doc, Nailing The Commons.

That I would blog, or prepare a report at this time, when there are several people dedicated to recording the iSummit is likely an exhausting prospect. Thus, this article, a sampling of articles and reports on the sessions I’d been involved with. Three for now… let’s see how many more turn up before the close of the summit.
Composed by Simon Dingle covering the DIY video session, 31 July, this was a kind of roundtable sharing experiences in the use of CC rights management in various film / screen initiatives.
Simon covers the Asia Commons session, 30 July, that resulted in the following:
- developing case models/studies on the commons
- building a distribution network for asia (e.g. for multimedia contents)
- how to share presentations
- sharing strategies on advocacy
I’ve arrived in Sapporo with Sarawak still heavy on my mind. Feeling good though… and optimistic despite the challenges ahead.
I’m here to produce the joint iCommons and APC micro doc, Identifying The Commons. Here’s a brief description:
The notion of what constitutes the commons has broad interpretations. So to does the information commons. This video will enquire into what is considered an information/knowledge commons through a series of short interviews conducted at the 2008 iSummit in Sapporo Japan.
The end result is a video resource for the iCommons and APC, additionally supporting the APC Strategic Priority Scoping paper, Growing the Global Information Commons.
