Mike Linksvayer (Creative Commons) Interview Content

Another quick update on some more content I am gathering for the mighty tome…

Mike Linksvayer joined Creative Commons as CTO. Previously the co-founder Bitzi, he has over ten years’ experience as an enterprise software, web, and multimedia developer and consultant and holds a B.A. in economics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I worked with Mike when getting together the Severed Fifth announcement, and he has been tremendously helpful in helping me to work in producing Creative Commons content. He is a great asset to the Creative Commons.

I am in the process of interviewing Mike for some content for the book, and I am excited about the insights he will bring to the Art Of Community.

Of course, in addition to a printed version of the book by O’Reilly, the Art Of Community will also be available under a Creative Commons License, so the content is particularly apt.

    The Creative Commons project is another one of those hooks that draws me like a moth to flame. I feel pretty fortunate to have Greg Grossmeier, one of the Creative Commons guys, not just in, but leading our MI-Loco.

    I’m excited to hear (and apply to my arsenal or arguments) economic insight of the use of Creative Commons. IS there going to be any of that kind of discussion? That’s the main argument people (artists) have when I try to explain and promote this license, they freak out about money, and cannot get past “free”. So inundated by pure capitalism, this attitude that nothing is worth doing without some sort of instant reimbursement, and unlimited greed and fear, it’s difficult for me to get into the benefits of this type of copyright.

    Another reason to look forward.
