From 2-23 March, mash up a film, tweak an artwork, remix a poem - whatever takes your fancy - then upload it to Pool

The winner gets an internship with ABC Radio National to co-produce an episode of The Night Air while runners up get Creative Commons packs including USBs chock full of remixable material.

Select works will be showcased at the Ideas Festival and pulled apart by our panel of experts at the 'We Are what We Share' seminar (Saturday 28th, 5-6:30pm, State Library of Queensland.

TechRadar - CC Use - arguments for and against
She also posted a link and a note to a good article on Techradar on CC by
Marco Fiorett, here

Jessica notes, "not only does it include some very cool examples of CC use, it also has a good rundown of some of the pros and cons of CC in different markets.

There is also " an excellent discussion of the problems/dilemmas of implementing CC in areas without a strong copyright tradition (Asia, South America etc) - complete with
commentary by some of the more prominent faces in the OA international community "

Which begs Watches Replica the question: why show the world’s press something that isn’t even available for purchase? Replica Rolex watches Are Lange and Cartier essentially doing the same thing as UK Replica watches, but instead of not offering any watches for sale are offering only a few to nameless Designer handbags clients in far away lands?There are so many wonderful things being done in mechanical watches well below £300,000,but an outsider wouldn’t know it based on the Replica Rolex Watches.
