My brother often corrects my grammar. It’s as easy to get it right as to get it wrong… he would say. Even though I find this mildly irritating, especially as he’s my younger sibling, he’s quite right – and secretly I upgrade my grammar without giving him any satisfaction, only to knowledgeably correct others on the same point.

So this thinkery about Creative Commons attribution might feel mildly annoying, but when it comes to attributing an author or creator for something you get to use for free, I think it’s worth the secret upgrade…

Whilst slacking in the Creative Commons Slack channel, a few people were sharing their remote working setups (or for distributed organisations, their normal working setup). So I thought I’d create a quick sketch of mine. On reflection, I seem to have acquired a few boards: White, Chopping and Dart. The Chopping board has been one of the best work-hacks I’ve discovered (costing all of £8 from IKEA). It allows be to work at an angle to my desk, giving me more leg room, a healthier posture, and works a treat with an apple wireless keyboard hooked on the top of the board.

Certificates, Pot Luck style…

Certificates that recognise something are often done by people at people. Creative Commons is taking a different approach. They’re asking the question, what can each of us bring in order to help recognise each other’s knowledge of the commons?. It’s possible that the word “certificate” won’t represent what it will evolve into. And I for one like the sound of that…

Defender of the Commons…

Hey!
My buddy created that image. I really think you should attribute him as he spent quite a bit of time creating it. Otherwise, how will anyone else know that this image is available for them to use under creative commons as well?

I love these people – these defenders of the commons. Power to their elbows!

This thinkery comes from a thoroughly enjoyable conversation with Alan Levine.
