It's Party Time! CC Birthdays Around the World

Dear all,


For those of you planning to host a CC Birthday Party this December, the wiki page is now online: http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Birthday_Party

Six cities are currently listed as hosts: Brisbane, Berlin, Guatemala City, NYC, San Francisco, and Seoul. If your city would also like to hold one, please add it to the list by creating a new wiki page and pasting in the metadata at the end of this email.

To celebrate CC's sixth year, most cities are keeping it small -- a film screening, salon-style discussions, or simply playing CC music at a nice location. Other ideas include the CC Video Project, burn stations, or t-shirt designs. If that's too much, the best thing is just grabbing a few drinks with CC friends in your neighborhood and toasting to another year.

Allison and I will be helping coordinate the birthday planning, so please feel free to drop us a line about any ideas or events. We're looking forward to the global celebrations!

In birthday solidarity,

Michelle and Allison

Subject: Apply now: OII Summer Doctoral Programme 2009, Brisbane, Australia

Dear friends and colleagues,

I am delighted to announce that we are accepting applications for the  
OII Summer Doctoral Programme 2009, to be hosted this year by our  
partners at the Creative Industries Faculty at Queensland University  
of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, Australia.

OII SDP 2009: Brisbane (6-17 July, 2009)
http://www.oii.ox.ac.uk/teaching/sdp/

The programme aims to stretch the thinking of all students on a range  
of issues, to provide valuable advice and support for students' thesis  
research, and to establish a peer network of excellent young  
researchers. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the thematic focus this year will  
be on 'Creativity, Innovation and the Internet': our partners on the  
SDP since 2003, the Creative Industries Faculty is at the forefront of  
pioneering international research initiatives in creative industries  
policy, applied creative industries research, digital media design,  
and the creative and performing arts.

As in previous years, the programme will involve daily research  
seminars and panel sessions given by leading academics, with students  
having the opportunity to present their research to their peers in  
informal seminars. Break-out sessions will allow groups to focus more  
narrowly on research questions of mutual interest, and time is made  
available for individual research and informal contact with tutors and  
fellow students.

Student feedback on the Summer Doctoral has always been overwhelmingly  
positive, and the SDP 2009 promises to be yet another excellent year  
in this series. I hope you will consider applying, encourage your  
students to apply, or forward this email to people who may be  
interested! Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.

Best wishes,
Dr Victoria Nash
Director of Graduate Studies, Oxford Internet Institute

--------------------------------------------------
1. SDP2009: Apply / Deadline
--------------------------------------------------

The SDP2009 Application Form is available on the website. The  
application process will close at 17:00 GMT on Monday 16 February  
2009. Successful applicants will be notified by 1 April 2009.

Apply for the SDP2009:
http://www.oii.ox.ac.uk/teaching/sdp/

All applications must be supported by one or more of the students'  
current doctoral supervisors (references will be requested). All  
teaching will be in English, so all applicants should be able to  
demonstrate their competence in this language.

--------------------------------------------------
2. Candidates: What are we looking for?
--------------------------------------------------

Up to 30 places are available and will be awarded on a competitive  
basis. Preference will be given to students at an advanced stage of  
their doctorate who have embarked on writing their thesis.

Like the course tutors, our SDP students come from a wide range of  
disciplinary backgrounds: computer science, sociology, law, etc.  
Whatever the background, the programme aims to facilitate deep  
discussion of both substantive and methodological research issues, and  
to help students frame their research questions and direct their  
research.

As in other years, the SDP2009 will seek to generate dialogue and  
debate between students from different disciplinary backgrounds on  
issues relating to the broad theme of creativity and innovation with a  
view to improving each student's doctoral thesis and identifying  
topics for future collaborative research. With these aims in mind, we  
are particularly keen to attract the most promising students who are  
prepared to engage with different disciplines, backgrounds and  
viewpoints.

3. Background: the OII Summer Doctoral Programme
--------------------------------------------------

Launched in 2003, the OII SDP is now an important fixture of the OII's  
year, a time when we bring together a diverse group of students and  
tutors for two weeks of intense work and discussion. We consciously  
encourage the international character of the SDP in order to encourage  
peer networks that are as diverse as possible, and to benefit students  
who may not have significant academic peer-groups in their own  
universities. The programme is held away from Oxford every other year:  
this is our third stint abroad (in 2005 we took the SDP to Beijing,  
and in 2007 we were hosted by the Berkman Center, Harvard University).

Quick Stats:
160 students
38 nationalities
80 tutors
320 hours of seminars .. since the first SDP2003. And counting.

--------------------------------------------------
4. Fees / Scholarships / Partners
--------------------------------------------------

The cost of the course will be AUD 3300.00, covering accommodation  
from 5-17 July 2009 (inclusive) and all course tuition fees. Travel to  
and from Brisbane is not included in this fee.

We are currently looking for additional funding to provide support for  
student scholarships. Students do not need to make a request for a  
scholarship at the application stage as this will be dealt with once  
the selection process has been completed.

We are grateful for the generosity of the Higher Education Funding  
Council for England (Hefce) and all our academic partners in  
supporting this programme: the Institute for Creative Industries and  
Innovation (iCi) (2009 co-organiser), the ARC Centre of Excellence for  
Creative Industries and Innovation (CCI), the Berkman Center for  
Internet and Society (Harvard University) and the Annenberg School of  
Communication (USC).

Re: Your input needed for “NonCommercial” questionnaire

Done....took me ages, lol :D

Some of the questions were a little on the vague side, and the answers 
sometimes lost the context/thread of the original question.  Maybe this was 
intentional to lever a more interesting set of responses :)

Hope my efforts were of some help, I'll pass this one on.

Mike, I clicked on the link to take the questionnaire. Then I stopped. Having 
been burned too many times in the past, I have a sort of informal policy not 
to fill out forms on the net where I can't see the whole thing at once. I 
don't like getting ten minutes into something only to find that I am 
unwilling to give further info. Is it possible to do one where we can see the 
while thing at once? Or even an email version of the thing?

The form is fine, I filled it out. You don't have to give any
identifying personal information, and IIRC you can always decline to
give information without interrupting the questionnaire.

I think you misunderstand me. I don't do forms in multi-parts like that. I am 
suggesting they fix it. (I doubt I am the only one who will balk at this. 
They are going to miss input from people like me.

So, do you have links to the people who designed the form and can you pass 
this info on as positive feedback for improvement?

The problem is, with things like this, you can't take your info back if 
halfway through you decide you don't like the deal.

The questions that are asked, depend upon the answers that one gives.
 That means that the only non-multi=part format they could provide,
would contain all of the questions,some of which would be inapplicable
because of the earlier responses.
