Second Edition Community Interviews: Mike Linksvayer from the Creative Commons

Joining Linus Torvalds (Linux), Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park), and MÃ¥rten Mickos (MySQL/Eucalyptus), I pleased to announce the next interview I will be featuring in the second edition of The Art of Community.

This one will be with Mike Linksvayer, who serves as Vice President of Creative Commons. Mike originally joined Creative Commons as their Chief Technical Officer in 2003 and then became Vice President in 2007. Previously he co-founded Bitzi, an early open content/open data service.

The Creative Commons has gone us to really redefine how we can share, remix, and collaborate around media, and the organization has not only defined a clear set of licenses (of which The Art of Community uses one of them), but also worked to encourage media creation, and the ubiquitous growth of Free Culture. Mike has delivered a fascinating interview that touches on how the Creative Commons was formed, how it has grown it’s global community, and the obstacles it has surpassed in challenging how the industry approaches what we can do with music, video and other media.
