Welcome to Students for Free Culture. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!
This semester will be our first full semester as a club at Cornell, and we’ll be holding our first meeting this Thursday, September 3, at 4:45 PM in Risley Hall, where we held it last year. A few news items to ponder, which we’ll probably discuss at the meeting:
- Google Books to add Creative Commons Books
- Microsoft Lists Linux as a Competitor
- Free Software Foundation Launches Windows 7 Sins Campaign
- Social Network Sites Found to Leak Lots of Information (PDF)
If you’re new and are wondering what we’re about, check out the national website, and some interesting wikipedia articles. For a brief summary, though, we want to see information, artwork and culture spread more easily. We want to encourage the the use of copyleft licenses in artwork and literature, open-access journals with the ultimate goal of increasing the public’s access to knowledge
See the wiki for more meeting details.
