Hal spoke about the basics goals of CC Tech. CC licenses provide interoperability in the form of legal code CC Tech through RDFa allows for distributed embedding of metadata in web pages to make the licenses interoperable on the meta data level. RDFa has been accepted as a W3C recommendation. CC and others are developing inherently distributed technologies that are inherently extensible. Clear interoperability is the goal.
Hal also touted the as-yet-unreleased book Viral Spiral: how the commoners built a digital republic of their own as a story of what we have accomplished, and what more is possible.
First speaker Nathan R. Yergler (Creative Commons CTO)
CC Network has three basic functions; a CC Network web page where members can claim works and create an online profile, Open Idea and a work registry.
To date over 650 people have joined the CC Network. Each network profile contains a Screen Name: Example Sarterus and a Confirmed Name: Example Brian Rowe a list of claimed works and a short bio.
For OpenID CC has implemented a few privacy and security best practices:
- No 3rd party Analytics
- Minimal log retention
- SSH verification
The work registry allowsa users to claim works in two ways:
- “claim” a work (works are defined by a single URL)
- wild card claiming: IE claim everything at a domain (ie I claim all works that start with Sarterus.com)
