Creative Commons: Access and Knowledge Sharing -- Trieste

Today's presentation on access and knowledge sharing, given at "Scientific Information in the Digital Age: Access and Dissemination" at the ICTP, Trieste, Italy.

(More below...)

A little bit of information about me that you may or may not already know ...

I get the heebie jeebies when my talks are taped and livestreamed.

Let me explain a bit ... I fully support the practice and dissemination, I do. Hands down. It's just the minor hiccups, the technical difficulties or other human errors that often occur during a live presentation, and the thought of having them not only broadcast, but *viewed* by others that makes me the wee bit embarrassed. I know, it's terrible. But, 'tis the truth. It's a personal thing. I'll get over it.

With that said, the video is online from the latest overview of Creative Commons and overview of our OA work. Please be kind. :)

More information on 'Scientific Information in the Digital Age'

Ah, the joy of workshops in computer labs. Here's more information about this week's workshop, the participant breakdown, and up-to-date program.

There's even a free book available on a variety of topics relevant to this audience and access to scientific materials through Open Access. It's available under a Creative Commons license, visible below the all rights reserved, traditional copyright logo. Can't win 'em all. :)

No surprise, there's still quite a bit of confusion in the ever muddy pool of understanding as to what "Open Access" denotes. With any luck, my talk after lunch will help clarify.
