On Monday, May 18th 7:00pm-9:00pm, David Bollier will speak about
the themes of his new book, Viral Spiral: How the Commoners Built
a Digital Republic of Their Own (New Press). The book is the
first comprehensive history of the "free culture" movement and
"sharing economy" that is empowering ordinary people, disrupting
markets and changing politics and culture. Bollier will talk
about the rise of free and open source software, Creative Commons
licenses, the new forms of non-market creativity (Wikipedia,
blogs, remix music, videos) as well as fascinating innovations in
open science, open education and "open business models."
David Bollier is a leading American activist, author, blogger and
proponent of "free culture" on the Internet and the commons. He
is an editor of Onthecommons.org and Senior Fellow at the USC
Annenberg School for Communication. Bollier is also co-founder of
Public Knowledge, a Washington, D.C., organization that advocates
for the public's stake in the Internet and copyright law, and the
author of Silent Theft, Brand Name Bullies, and four other
books. He lives in Amherst, Massachusetts.
