Forum for Students: Culture of Sharing

March 31, 2008 by Lisa Jansen

If you’re into making YouTube videos or sharing music with friends, then this event is for you! On Saturday, April 12, 2008, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries are sponsoring Culture of Sharing, a forum for students covering a variety of issues related to the culture of sharing made possible by the technologies of the Internet.

The free event will feature a keynote speech by Nelson Pavlosky, co-founder of Students for Free Culture, and closing session with Gavin Baker who manages the Open Students blog and is the Assistant Editor for Peter Suber's Open Access News.

Breakout sessions include:

  • Remixes and mash-ups: YouTube, sampling and legal repurposing
  • Peer-to-peer file sharing: what CAN you do?
  • Sharing your work: including open access publishing options
  • Open source: sharing programming solutions
  • Digital rights management: DRM in CDs, DVDs, iTunes and more
