Fun Mashup at IssueLab
Posted by Allison Fine on October 15, 2009
Here is the nub of the contest from the website: “Contestants will be asked to remix facts from one or more of the 300+ Creative Commons licensed reports on IssueLab with openly licensed video footage or openly licensed images and music.”
But the contest is more than a geeky wonderland of data connections, it’s also an opportunity for the participants to practice using Creative Commons licenses and a chance for the rest of us to see its power. The idea here is to build on existing data and the work that others have started without taking the work. The point of Creative Commons licenses is to respect the work of others, credit them in appropriate ways, and use it to create new and interesting products.
I’m looking forward to seeing what develops here and will keep you posted on the results!
