<nettime-ann> Lawrence Lessig, Dj Spooky: Creative Commons 5th Anniversary

Hello you all - as many of the people on this list might know, I'm an artist whose work posits digital media as an extension of many issues that face contemporary art and aesthetics, and in that context, I'd like to extend an invitation to those from the list who live in San Francisco to come check out the Creative Commons 5th Anniversary. Every aspect of the event will be open source.

And yes folks - it's contemporary art.

in peace,
Paul aka DJ Spooky

Date: December 15th
Time: 10pm-2am
Venue: Terra Gallery
511 Harrison st
San Francisco CA 94105

"CC is turning 5 and to celebrate weâre throwing a community-wide party. If youâll be in the San Francisco Bay Area on December 15, join us for a night of celebrating the commons at a party generously sponsored by Mozilla and The evening will feature announcements by Joi Ito and Lawrence Lessig, a live acoustic performance by Gilberto Gil, video remixing by Phi Phenomenon, and open source, remixable music and video provided by Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky. Space is limited so please RSVP to as soon as possible to let us know if you will be joining us (seriously, please do this!). Details are listed on our birthday flyer.

If youâre not in the Bay Area, donât worry. There will also be parties in Berlin and New York City. For more details about these events, or if you want to register a party in your own part of the world, check out our wiki page for more information. Air Mozilla will be streaming Gilberto Gilâs performance for those who wonât be able to attend any of the parties. And of course, please feel free to celebrate CC in Second Life as well.

No matter where you are in the world, we invite you to celebrate CCâs five years of helping to keep culture free and celebrate the future of participatory culture."
