Glitch Vacations
Glitch Vacations is an audiovisual performance by Flor de Fuego and Naoto Hieda - a journey through open webpages and platforms created by the artists and the community members. The generative video and sound consist of minimal elements - geometric shapes and sinusoidal waves - yet the modulation and collision of each element result in complex forms, namely a glitch. In the livestream, the artists perform as navigating through web pages, which are interlinked with each other; optionally, audience members can open a provided URL to participate in an interactive experience on their browser.

Wikibase: An Open Source and Free Tool to Power the Commons
Wikibase is a free, open source software developed and maintained by Wikimedia Deutschland. Originally developed to run the free knowledge base Wikidata, Wikibase is now being developed as a software product in its own right. Why? Because it is a free, flexible and collaborative software solution that allows users to set up and maintain their own linked database. Wikibase is increasingly being used by GLAM, government and research institutions to store and manage data. This talk will contain an introduction to Wikibase, showcases, how to get started, and our plans for the future.

How Can Open Sharing and Privacy Coexist?
Every act of online sharing potentially implicates privacy concerns. Some believe this is an inevitability—that forgoing personal privacy is necessary when sharing content online. But CC still imagines a world where sharing and privacy can coexist and believes that this coexistence is paramount to sustaining free and democratic societies. How do we get there? Is a new legal tool a viable approach? This session will explore this and other questions facing the open movement when it comes to fundamental rights to privacy.

Legal and Ethical Challenges to Sharing and Using GLAM Collections
Developments in artificial intelligence (AI) present exciting opportunities for GLAMs. While these opportunities are likely to propel GLAMs forward through their digital transformation, they also raise questions in the area of copyright, ethics, privacy and data protection that need to be clarified.
To analyze these issues, an interdisciplinary panel of legal and digital humanities experts, designers and computer scientists will discuss to what extent AI can be used in the GLAM sector to generate benefits in the public interest and how sustainable, ethical and prosocial uses can be developed.

Creative Commons for Privacy Commons: How CC can Inspire Creation of Legal Tools for Managing Privacy Issues on-line.
"The session aims to present a feasibility study resulting from the collaboration between the Italian Chapter of Creative Commons and the Italian Data Protection Authority (Garante per la protezione dei dati personali). The aim is to create a system of licenses regulating the privacy issues online, inspired by the Creative Commons licenses system.
The study is also relevant for the copyright sector and for the use of CC licenses, considering the increasing linking between copyright, right of image, privacy right and personal data management.

Is the ‘Rich-Club’ Effect Impoverishing Our Open Communities?
‘Rich-club’ behavior describes the phenomenon where contributors with a high number of collaborations are likely to cooperate with other well-connected individuals. This phenomenon has been prevalent in academia for decades, and recent research shows a similar trend emerging in the open knowledge community. We would like to engage in the co-discovery and unpacking of barriers and continue to support and grow an inclusive international community of open knowledge advocates, developers, and stakeholders interested in understanding and mitigating the effects of the ‘rich-club’ phenomenon.

We want to engage participants and ourselves in learning and strategizing for ensuring that the harms perpetrated in the platform ecosystem are addressed with special regard to vulnerable communities and geographies that are not usually the focus of the news cycle. We will explore biased narratives by media platforms expounding solidarity, collaboration, while in reality they are breeding grounds for hate and abuse. With special regard to the role of the Open Movement in this process and the technologies we create will surface ideas that help nourish fair internet for all.

Making Community Publishing Mainstream: A New Economic Model for Knowledge Production
We need a new economic model for knowledge production. One that is in alignment with products and data and no longer silos content due to misaligned incentives. To do so, we need open tools that put communities in control of their own publishing models. A growing number of groups are experimenting with creating their own review, curation, production, publication, and impact analysis processes. These models, which we call Community Publishing, can shift power from monolithic gatekeepers to communities of practice, creating a more equitable, effective, and sustainable knowledge-sharing ecosystem

Does Creative Commons Licensed Content Pay, Especially Indigenous Language Content?
Majority of the world’s languages are spoken and not written. However, only 7% of the world’s knowledge is captured in publication. (WhoseKnowledge? 2019) Languages with limited resources face the risk of low content creation and low readership. Most such languages do not experience a content demand surge nor a faster growth of content producers. We will be demonstrating how and which socio-economic, policy-level and technical factors affect indigenous-language content, especially the Ho and Santali languages of India from research supported by Grant for the Web and Creative Commons CAF fund.

Reimagining Wikidata from the Margins: Towards a Sustainable Future
Wikidata, Wikimedia's open knowledge database, is celebrating 9 years in 2021. Although the project intends to structure the sum of all human knowledge, we’re still missing Global South and other marginalized communities from the North - both in data and in contributors. Before WikidataCon 2021, the “Reimagining Wikidata from the margins” project is taking place as a series of discussions with underrepresented communities to collectively imagine how to decenter Wikidata to be more inclusive and fair in representing their own knowledge.

The Paradox of Open
In March 2021 we published the Paradox of Open, an essay in which we reflect on almost 20 years of involvement in the open movement. One of our key insights is that in today’s environment, openness serves as both a challenge to concentrations of power and its enabler. We want to bring our insights to the CC summit and explore possibilities for reimagining the role of openness in a digital environment that undergone fundamental changes since the emergence of Creative Commons and other champions of open in the early 2000s.

My Intention Is... To Share
More and more content creators like musicians, photo-/videographers, bloggers and journalists are dependent on digital platforms to host and share their content. Most of the power to decide who can upload, under which conditions is exercised through a lengthy Terms of Service page. Online legal documentation created by legal teams to protect the digital platform, not per se to support makers.

We need your input to improve a new tool we are building, TakeNode(.org). Would you like to empower creators? Or just want to see and test what we have built so far? And why? Join us!

On Sep 22 we shared TakeNode with a group of designers, activists, coders, students and social hackers. They really like the simplicity and the effort to transform something really boring (copyright law, terms of use, license agreements) into a 30-60 second effort to protect creative works before uploaded to the internet. Some questions we can maybe reuse during this session:
  • Will you offer this tool in other languages except EN/NL so it becomes more accessible to creatives around the world?
  • Can you take the open source code & structure from this tool and replace the generic licenses/intentions with CC licenses? How will this benefit the CC world?
  • Are there content sharing platforms (e.g. the ones who have to comply with new copyright laws) showing interest in copy/pasting the mechanism as part of their upload procedure?
  • Can this tool be used for public domain works / GLAM? Can we replace the "content creator" with "archivist" or any other professional  responsible for a collection of digital works?
  • You are using a clever way to offer content creators a 'verified by' status but how can you scale this to other parts of Europe, America... the world? 
  • Is Google interested to use this for content uploaded to YouTube?
  • Who will own this initiative and how can you safeguard I can do a reverse lookup in 10 years' time and still find the metadata of the work, rightsholder, timestamp etc. ?
Of course, you are invited to play with the tool: https://www.takenode.org before you join this session.
Some basic examples of how content + TakeNode end up on Twitter, Flickr and YouTube can be found here: https://twitter.com/TakeNodeOrg

Project #OPENEDUCATION - Teaching and Learning in Perfect Harmony

“Remixing,” as one of the “5R’s,” is one of the key advantages of Open Educational Resources (OER). But can most of the OER being produced today actually be remixed?

In this session, open advocates Learning Equality will lead an investigation into portability: the quality that determines whether digital content is able to reach as many audiences around the world as possible.

We’ll invite participants to evaluate their own or others’ resources with regards to a portability checklist, create indicators collaboratively, and explore ramifications for evaluators, creators, and technologists.
