Today, Nov 29 at 7pm UTC (9pm Cairo, 2pm EST) Rebus are hosting a discussion following a Twitter storm initiated by Robin DeRosa on questioning which CC licenses work when..
Twitter is most definitely not the best place to discuss nuances of licenses, and so the Twitter convo included links…so I thought I would include some of my favorites right here and some of the tweets
Robin’s tweet (and also my pet license to discuss and Tannis Morgan’s) targets CC-BY-NC as a viable open alternative to CC-BY (I will not link to the dominant view that favors CC-BY because it is already dominant…why should I?)
Thinking of changing my @creativecommons default license from CCBY to CCBYNC. I get that CCBY is the more open technically, but I'm thinking here about my vision for open (in particular as it relates to public higher ed), and I keep coming back to the NC. Discuss?

Me me. I mean I do purport to have a preferred answer, and have yet to be convinced of another… But happy to keep talking about it. I found my two posts and they're contextualizedhttps://t.co/Fj8FLTqhEfhttps://t.co/DdMJe0bTDg

The thread originating from Robin has links to others by David Wiley, Steel Wagstaff and others.
I have views on CC-BY-NC, on usefulness and importance of ND and on how it is all contextual. I also like the notion of doing something other than sticking to a particular license’s terms.
And of course that openness is way more than a license…but something else altogether.
Today’s talk includes Robin DeRosa, Amanda Larson, Cable Green and me.
See you there inshallah.
I will post the link to the recording here when it is done.
