On Friday 16 October I talked to the Vernon User Group about GLAM collection management, copyright, and openness including Creative Commons licensing

Recently I have given talks about CC to: Vernon User Group (with Victoria), SLANZA conference, CareersNZ, and Tinderbox conference. This week coming up I'll be on a panel discussing IP at Dance Aotearoa NZ.

I've been running "train the trainer" GIF-making workshops with staff at public libraries across NZ. This workshop introduces DigitalNZ, open licensing, touches on CC, before moving to a hands-on practical GIF-making session. CC is covered very quickly (the workshop is only 2 hours), but participants are pointed in the direction of further info. I've got two more workshops coming up next week at the Awa City Clubhouse in Whanganui, and with South Taranaki Libraries.

Michel Bauwens NZ Lecture Tour: P2P Design, Open Source Collaboration, & the Sharing Economy

Founder and Director, P2P Foundation

The leading chronicler of commons-based peer production is coming to New Zealand. From P2P design to open source collaboration to the sharing economy, new forms of cooperation, value creation, and distribution are emerging.

Dates roughly as per Sophie's post.

On Friday 20 Nov, I went into the head office of the Auckland Kindergarten Association to talk to them about Creative Commons in education. It was a meeting/pitch to three of their staff who were really interested in how the principles of cc, open education and sharing resources might be applied to the kindergarten sector.

In February I will be going to Whitireia / WelTec to talk to them about CC and OERs.

Last week, a new volunteer, William McKee, provided a talk to a writers' group in Hamilton - it sounded like he got some great feedback.

More detail from @williammckee on our email list:

"I recently did a talk about Creative Commons at Writers Den Hamilton.
The slides can be found at http://wcmckee.com​/creativecommons​.svg

People seemed generally positive. I had people approaching
me after the talk asking about licencing their blogs under a cc

Writers Den Hamilton has a site - http://writersdenhamilton.org.nz
The licence is CC BY by default. Currently it's only my work on there
but I plan on helping others in the group start to upload their work.

People tend to write short stories for wdh as we have homework tasks
and people bring in the work to share and critique. These short
stories (500 words) would work well on the site and be a stepping
stone for writers that feel uneasy about licencing their novel under a
cc licence.

Last week, a CCANZ volunteer, Richard McLaren, introduced a CC policy at Shirley Boys High School - which was subsequently approved.

With around 1500 students, this is a big win. We're slowly ticking off many of the larger high schools.
