The digital era has placed tools of creation in the hands of all users making everyone creators of cultural work.Free culture aims to ensure users control their own creative process and actively create culture. Non-free culture is under the control of someone else. Free culture liberates creative processes giving individuals more control. Free culture empowers individual creation, democratizes culture, and ensures we all have the freedom to create and participate in culture. Compare with Free Culturehttp://openglam.org/ “Galleries, libraries, archives and museums have a fundamental role in supporting the advance of humanity’s knowledge. They are the custodians of our cultural heritage and in their collections they hold the record of humankind. The internet presents cultural heritage institutions with an unprecedented opportunity to engage global audiences and make their collections more discoverable and connected than ever, allowing users not only to enjoy the riches of the world’s memory institutions, but also to contribute, participate and share. The first step to make a collection open is to apply an open license, but that is where the story begins. Openness to collaboration and to novel forms of user engagement are essential if cultural heritage institutions are to realise the full potential of the internet for access, innovation and digital scholarship.”http://openglam.org/principles/ “In today’s society, individuals often collaborate in producing cultural content, knowledge and other information, as well as physical goods. In some cases, these individuals share the results and products, the means, methods and experience gained from this collaboration as a resource for further development; this phenomenon is referred to as commons-based peer production.”Peter Troxler in Libraries of the Peer Production EraCommons-Based Peer ProductionHatsune Miku – World’s First Crowdsourced CelebrityFuturistic-looking cartoon character "born" in 2007 as a mascot for Crypton Future Media's Hatsune Maku synthetic voice software. Allows users to make music with a synthetic singer based on the voice of a Japanese actress. Hatsune Miku is the first and most famous virtual singer. Crypton adopted a Creative Commons CC BY-NC license. 1 million derivative artworks produced, 100,000+ fan-produced songs, and over 170,000 YouTube videos. Performs live sold-out shows (Hong Kong, LA, …) where she sings fan-produced songs as a 3D image (looks 3D but is actually a 2D projection on a curved glass screen).http://youtu.be/rL5YKZ9ecpg Open StreetMap1 million registered users, who collect data using GPS devices, aerial photography, and other free sources.

And yet, here we are. We can now easily download designs from the internet, alter them at will to suit our own needs and then produce perfect products at the push of a button.

So are language and knowledge, sidewalks and public squares, … Some parts of the commons are gifts of nature, others the product of human endeavor. Some are new, such as the Internet; others as ancient as soil and calligraphy.”Part 1: The Commons as a New ParadigmPart 2: Capitalism, Enclosure and ResistancePart 3: Commoning a Social Innovation of our TimePart 4: Knowledge Commons for Social ChangePart 5: Envisioning a Commons-Based Policy and Production Frameworkmore than ahttp://www.shareable.net https://opensource.com/education/13/5/sharing-higher-ed http://www.shareable.net/blog/is-seoul-the-next-great-sharing-city “Shareable U. It’s part campus sustainability, part new economics, part DIY, and part open education. What brings all these movements together on campus is a desire to create more value for less money via increased collaboration between people, departments, institutions, and communities.” “The goal of the Sharing City is to create jobs and increase incomes, address environmental issues, reduce unnecessary consumption and waste, and recover trust-based relationships between people. With more than 10 million people living within 234 square miles, Seoul is in a good position to demonstrate the benefits of tech-enabled sharing.”Paul Stacey Creative Commonsweb site: http://creativecommons.org  e-mail: pstacey@creativecommons.org blog: http://edtechfrontier.compresentation slides: http://www.slideshare.net/Paul_Stacey Q&A *
