Share the love with One Laptop per Child, the Creative Commons, Textbook Revolution, and the entire world.
Update 1: As I have just learned, one should always beware rogue content editors on romantic holidays who have a special affinity for exclamation marks…
Update 2: We’ve been slashdotted! Thanks for all the interest… among other things, it led to contributions from Ben Crowell, who has single-handedly covered most of basic university physics with his carefully laid-out libre publications.
- Submit the free books you know of
- Share CC-licensed songs, movies, and more
- Bookmark-books with del.icio.us tags: “ftbp”
for books and “livecontent” for quality CC works that should make the LiveContent DVD
- Publishers, authors, and editors – consider putting your works
under a Creative Commons license so we can spread them around the world
- OLPC Jam in Boston
- Throw your own barcamp or jam (leave a comment here)
- On IRC: #olpc-content on irc.freenode.net
We are collecting all the free books, movies, music, and other content that we can in the next five days. Then, on Tuesday (2/19) the Creative Commons will be burning a LiveDVD as part of LiveContent 2.0 with the selection of CC licensed materials being gathered — this DVD will be distributed to events like South by Southwest and elsewhere. The bundle of books and educational resources we collect will be used by One Laptop per Child to send all over the world for children, families, and schools. And textbookrevolution.org will compiling and reviewing the best college-level resources they can find for the re-launch of their new, community driven site.
On Saturday, there will be a hackathon/jam at Olin college. We hope others will setup their own jams and barcamps, and we will be adding them to the list above as they do.
