Libre graphics software — like GIMP, Inkscape, Scribus, the Open Clipart Library, and the Open Font Library — are important to Artefatica as a open publishing project. We want to make open books with open tools. More broadly, I find it exciting to think of a set of tools for self-expression and self-publishing that are available for anyone, anywhere.

Then I talked about our first project and facilitated a 30-minute discussion on authorship, sharing, open culture, and using Creative Commons.

The conference will showcase awesome cultural works, inspiring talks, and cool tech demos from around the world.

Culture, education, media, business, politics. Open-source approaches and practices have gone beyond technology. How has this happened in our community? In which domains? What are our stories, successes, challenges, failures? How does open affect the way we work, organize, govern, create?
