iSummit 07 Set for June 15-17
From the conference website:
Once a year, about 300 people from over 50 countries come together to celebrate and strategise around a free Internet for all.
Leaders of the Creative Commons, free software, open education and access to knowledge communities talk about their vision for the future and discuss strategies for building a free global culture that is rich - both in terms of economic viability and geographic diversity.
The iCommons Summit is supported by cutting edge Internet companies around the world whose success is based on a free Internet - companies who recognise the potential of commons-based peer production for growing their networks and their businesses, and doing it in a way that benefits all of humanity.
This year, we’re asking companies and foundations to support the Summit and put their name alongside a global movement of individuals that are affecting technology policy and practice in their countries and driving forward an environment in which innovation is set to flourish.
Who: 300 of the world’s leading intellectuals, authors, lawyers, artists and technologists on the cutting edge of Internet policy.
What: A three-day Summit to discuss the importance of a free Internet for free culture, new rules to keep the internet free, how to build free culture communities and the lessons we can learn from pirates.
Where: Dubrovnik, Croatia on the banks of the Adriatic Sea
When: 15-17 June, 2007
Editor's Note: As of the last time I checked the fundraising page, the conference organizers were still seeking funding for this conference. [JH]
