Announcing the Free and Open Works wiki (replacing the FOSsil Bank)

Hi folks,

You may remember that for a few years I posted semi-regular updates to these lists about the FOSsil Bank, a catalogue of low copyright works (public domain, free and open, other Creative Commons licences, etc.). 

The FOSsil Bank has been retired, and as of last week I'm encouraging everyone to check out Free and Open Works instead: http://faow.referata.com/wiki/Welcome_to_Free_and_Open_Works!

The new wiki runs off Semantic MediaWiki, so it's a bit cleverer in terms of metadata, the forms to submit a work are much easier and faster to use, and it's running off entirely free and open software. 

Please do check it out, share it with your networks, and contribute to it; there's also a formal press release if you're interested in some more information - or you can write to me privately or on these lists if you have any questions or comments. 

Thanks,
Chris

Conf11 List Spam

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's received a  large volume of spam
from the Conf11 list today.  I've tried to mute it to no avail.  Can one
of the admins step in and shut it down?

Thanks,
Josh

Big Buck Bunny Board Book

Hey all!

So, I've been doing quite a bit of thinking recently about the relationship
between free culture and my nieces, nephews, and future children.  I've been
looking around the community for freely-licensed content for children, and
there is a lot less of it than I would like.  What would be really nice is a
body of work with similar characters, etc, that kids could really connect
with.

To this end, I am working on a project to create a "board book" under a free
license.  In the spirit of free culture, I am basing the book on existing 
free work, namely, the excellent Big Buck Bunny video from the Blender 
Foundation.

I'm going around to various corners of the community trying to determine if
there would be interest in this project, or related projects, and what 
others have been thinking in this area of free cultural works for children, 
etc.  (I've already been pointed by others to http://peppercarrot.com/, 
which is a good find).
I have a write-up at
<https://singpolyma.net/2015/06/free-culture-for-the-next-generation/> and a
prelaunch page at
<https://www.crowdsupply.com/singpolyma/big-buck-bunny-board-book> -- I'd
welcome any comments or feedback from members of this list.

Thanks!

Ideas for Open Source Projects

Hey guys!

I'm sure at some point all of you have thought "Hey, there should be some free software that does {{thing}}!" So, I've whipped up a little HN/reddit clone as a platform for meta-discussion about the voids in free software. I'd like this to be a place to discuss new ideas, get feedback and find collaborators.

If you'd like, you can try it out here: http://gun.io/mostwanted/

There isn't really anything there yet as I literally just put it up, but if you've got any ideas for projects you'd like to share, please be brave and post them!

I know the FSF maintains a list of 'high priority' targets, but I think that's just a small subset of what is yet to be done. There's still a lot of low-hanging fruit out there!  I'll also be interested in funding any of the project ideas which seem particularly popular.

Anyway, please give it a shot! If it flops, c'est la vie, but I think it might be interesting experiment. No idea is too grand or too small! Worst case scenario, it's a place online to discuss ideas that aren't based on stupid memes and news about boring Silicon Valley startups.

Please, give it a shot and let me know what you think! Feedback is greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
Rich Jones

Snowdrift.coop fund-drive live now: help launch a platform dedicated to free culture and related!

Greetings all,

Now live at https://snowdrift.tilt.com — our fund-drive to cover legal costs (and ideally further development costs) to finally get Snowdrift.coop launched!

Please check it out, spread the word to sympathetic folks, donate, let us know *any* feedback!

Snowdrift.coop is a platform where *all* projects must meet things like the Definition of Free Cultural Works, and the core concept is a matching pledge to encourage us all to work together and move funding from proprietary culture to free culture!

The main site is partly working for testing at snowdrift.coop, and we're continuing to develop as quickly as we can while the fund-drive is going.

Cheers,
Aaron Wolf
Snowdrift.coop

FOSsil Bank Update - November 2014

Permalink

Hi folks,

Here's another FOSsil Bank update.

Big News – Free & Open Works

The big news is that I'm slowly working on creating Free & Open Works, the heir to the FOSsil Bank. Free & Open Works (FAOW) uses Semantic MediaWiki, which allows entries to be submitted by filling in a form, instead of expecting people to use a complicated links-and-tagging system like Wikidot requires. It also has nice touches like being entirely free and open source, allowing redirects, and having a host which is ad-free.

FAOW is limping along, and won't be ready to go before January, at least. But please do check it out here: http://faow.referata.com/. I'm keen to know what you think of it, especially if you're familiar with MediaWiki and Semantic MediaWiki and might be able to give me a hand.

Because of the upcoming transition to FAOW, new FOSsil Bank entries just have barebones details.

FOSsil Bank Update (September 2014)

Hi folks,

Another month, another FOSsil Bank update.

Living Libre updates

I'm exploring Semantic MediaWiki (thanks for the tip, Cov!) as the foundation for the next incarnation of the FOSsil Bank. I'm also looking for a new name for the FOSsil Bank – I want its name to explain, at least in part, what the site does. The working title is “Free, Libre and Open Catalogue”, but of course the Bank also has works under non-free licences. Maybe “Catalogue of Shareable Works”? Please share any ideas that you have.

Wikipedia Barn Raising July 19, focusing on Open Education (Online + Oakland, California)

Hi. I wonder if this still works.

...

Please join us for a "Wikipedia Barn Raising" event focusing on Open
Educational Resources (OER). The Barn Raising will happen on Saturday
July 19th, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pacific Time (1800-2300 UTC), at the
Oakland Impact Hub, at 2323 Broadway (near the 19th St. BART station)
and online. Lunch and refreshments will be provided at Oakland Impact
Hub.

Since 2012, we've been working to strengthen Wikipedia's coverage of
OER and related topics. We've worked to build an international
community around this goal at conferences, through our online "Writing
Wikipedia Articles" (WIKISOO) course, and through the formation of
WikiProject Open.

At the Barn Raising, we will focus on improving high-priority
Wikipedia articles, and consider ways to strengthen WikiProject Open
as a resource for staying connected, learning, and working together.
We'll also welcome online participants from around the world, with
collaboration tools and scheduled video check-ins.

Registration: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1RgXfFfjo0Zjd1nu1NAX-cDQPmWa8-GWvt59n87JwDvQ/viewform

Event page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Open_Barn_Raising_2014

We hope to see you there, online or in person!
