I’m on the quick to Vietnam and Hong Kong to talk about Aiki Framework, Sharism, StatusNet and Creative Commons. If you are around, please do come to the presentations. I love Vietnam and Hong Kong, so its a no brainer for me to make it out to both places.
The Aiki Framework @ FOSSASIA in Ho Chi Minh City
I’m excited to be giving a keynote about Aiki Framework and demo’ing my new presentation style. No one has really seen it yet and I hope there is some video. Let’s just say I’m using Free Software (Inkscape) but with the closed Joi Prezi-style, ala, Sozi.
Here is the presentation abstract:
The Aiki Framework: Agile. Secure. Fast.
Saturday, November 13 @ 10 AM @ Raffles International College, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
In the past, applying free software development style to web applications blocked continuous development. Many open source projects joined the #flist (#FAIL list). Since web sites are centralized pieces of software running continuously, there is a need for secure access to the live code. This forces a division of managing a running website, merging software changes from developers, and keeping development on the software progressing healthily. To complicate matters, a site may have active base of librarians and artists uploading and editing new materials.
Aiki Framework is an AGPL licensed LAMP-based new web framework that stores all the controllers and output templates in a database. It also allows for various levels of access to an instance so that configurable levels of trust are applied empowering development to continue from the web (or traditional ways). The block that plagues countless free software projects is removed, so development continues providing harmony and joining together functions of development on an open source web project.
UPDATE: I forgot to say that I’m also doing a workshop in the afternoon with artists and design students using Inkscape and my new presentation style. It should be a nice fun change of pace. The topic is “Cool Things in Free Software Design.” Sounds like my mom came up with that title Its at 2:30 PM.
A Global Status Update about Creative Commons @ Web 3.0 at Hong Kong
That’s right! I’m still a Creative Commons fellow. I jumped in to the program via Chiaki Hayashi who is the Creative Commons Asia liaison and Henry Oh who is working on Neoteny Labs-powered startup. Expect the new presentation style, my remix of JaneDaily and TVOL’s CC slides, with some new intro about why share and Sharism.
A Global Status Update about Creative Commons
By Jon Phillips, Creative Commons Fellow
Monday, November 17, 2010, 2-3 PM @ Function Rooms, Core E, Cyberport 3, 100 Cyberport Road, Hong Kong
Creative Commons has grown! With a global representation of jurisdictions, businesses such as Google, Microsoft and SoundCloud dependent upon Creative Commons legal tools, artists in Hong Kong licensing music under CC licenses, China-based Modern Media’s Get It Louder festival, the Whitehouse and Al Jazeera all using Creative Commons licenses, what is left to do? This talk provides a status update of Creative Commons projects, current legal issues like can you license a status update, problems being solved with patents, and how it all relates to the folks in attendance at the conference.
Sharism Presents in Hong Kong
And finally, on Monday night, November 15 at 9 PM there will be the first Sharism Presents in Hong Kong on the Kowloon side. We have limited spots at this first event, so please email (email@example.com) or DM me if you are interested in attending this event. It will feature Isaac mao from Sharism, Henry Oh from CreationMix, myself from myself, Chiaki Hayashi from Creative Commons and Loftwork Japan, Edmon Chung from .ASIA, Mr. Pindar Wong from Creative Commons Hong Kong, and our new colleagues from the upcoming Creative Commons Macau. Watch this blog for more information about this great upcoming event.
Sharism Presents are events where sharing is encouraged. Its not show and tell, but more of show and share. Sharism Presents are gifts of knowledge. Events are for all those interested in sharing and are informal. People are encouraged to introduce themselves at the beginning with what they are sharing at the meeting, and then the entire event is ad-hoc in development. If you are interested in hosting a Sharism Presents, please email the sharism team.
