Our misson is simply to share articles, opinions and artistic works that add insight into the world and promote intelligent discussion and debate. We are inspired by how news outlets, organizations and individuals are using technology to diseminate and gather information, and the creative efforts being fostered as a result.
One such effort is Creative Commons, an organization that has created the legal framework to make sharing works easier while offering protections to the authors and outlets publishing them. In this blog, we will attempt to share some of the works openly shared by a variety of news outlets, organizations like these, and government agencies.
Our goal through this endeavor is not only to inform and engage, but also to use this site as an educational tool for journalism students, a case study on digital journalism, Copyright law and creative communities.
