SJ Sophie Jerram Public Seen by 316

Thanks for starting the CCANZ discussion on Loomio. In the past I've seen it can be useful to introduce ourselves to the group so we have some context for our discussions.

Hi all, thanks for inviting me to this discussion @mattmcgregor.

I'm interested in the broad debate about commons, as a curator, independent researcher, writer and investor based in Wellington.

I have run public discussions that include debate around commons and IP within the partnership of www.nowfuture.org.nz

I'm a director of Loomio as well and am really pleased to see its usage here.

As co-curator on www.lettingspace.org.nz we're currently due to open in a major arts-based project called the 'Transitional Economic Zone of Aotearoa' based in Christchurch, due to open in a fortnight

Hi everyone,

I run Mohawk Media producing animated infographics (http://mohawkmedia.co.nz), and am currently writing a book called the Creative Business Toolkit, as a remix of my workshops and the MsBehaviour Files at the Big Idea. My interest is the use of CC in creative business, knowledge sharing and innovation.

Hi everyone. Thanks to Matt for starting this up and thanks Sophie for kicking off the introductions. I am the Copyright Officer at the University of Otago by day, so interested in CC as a vehicle for Open Access to teaching resources and to research; by night I am a CC-licensing musician, creator of quirky, pseudo-intellectual kiwi alt-rock { http://mermaidguitar.bandcamp.com/ }

I suppose I should also introduce myself! For most of the week, I manage the day-to-day work at CCANZ, here at the Royal Society in Wellington. I also work for Koordinates, a local technology company that hosts open data.

Kia ora koutou,
I work for a not-for-profit organisation helping schools get stuff done. In particular most of my work is in built environments (architecture) mental furniture (teaching, learning and leadership) and technology. Prior to taking up my current job I was Deputy Principal at an open source/creative commons high school in Auckland (Albany Senior High School). I like sharing all the things.
