Archive talk:Free Culture Manifesto
Thank you very much for your work! Good luck and know that there's a taiko player in Los Angeles who's with you all the way. :)
Awesome work, Gavin!
Great work on the manifesto. I think this is definitely something to give to new recruits, e.g., people who come to a local FC meeting and don't really have any clue what FC is about.
watch the utopianism
I like the "injustice and oppression will slowly but surely vanish from the earth." line, but I'm afraid that it sounds like we're promising that Free Culture will solve all of the world's problems, which I do believe is long-term possible, but it's not really something you want to promise, because it's rather difficult to follow up on. Let's try not to sound TOO impractical and utopian here. -- Nelson 20:31, 21 Jan 2005 (EST)
The last line of the manifesto says, "The future is in our hands; we must build a technological and cultural movement to defend the digital commons." This seems to suggest that FC.o only deals with digital works. Unless this is true, I would recommend changing "digital" to "creative". The great majority of creative work that merits protection is not inherently digital. --Pedro 04:36, 28 Feb 2005 (EST)
Perhaps something about avoiding locked-in communities?
For example, using Jabber, rather than Yahoo or MS or AOL IM. Another example: Using FOAF rather than Orkut.
