Announcing Our New Podcast: “Open Minds … from Creative Commons”

Today we’re excited to launch a new podcast called Open Minds … from Creative Commons.

It’s CC’s 20th anniversary this year. And to celebrate, we decided to launch this show, a series of conversations with people working on the issues we’re involved with and excited about. Expect Open Minds to feature folks from the worlds of open culture, open education, open science, open technology, and more. Expect interesting people with interesting ideas to share about sharing.

For our debut episode, we spoke with Creative Commons CEO Catherine Stihler. It seemed like a good place to start—hearing from our organization’s new leader about her career and her vision for what’s next for the Creative Commons movement.

Listen on Spotify, SoundCloud, and more (Apple Podcasts coming soon). You can also subscribe via the show’s RSS feed.

We hope you enjoy the show. Please subscribe to it in whatever podcast app you use, so you don’t miss any of our conversations with people working to make the internet and our global culture more open and collaborative.

The post Announcing Our New Podcast: “Open Minds … from Creative Commons” appeared first on Creative Commons.

Why simplicity is critical to delivering sturdy applications


Looking at a map
In the previous articles in this series, I explained why tackling coding problems all at once, as if they were hordes of zombies, is a mistake. I'm using a helpful acronym explaining why it's better to approach problems incrementally. ZOMBIES stands for:

Z – Zero
O – One
M – Many (or more complex)
B – Boundary behaviors
I – Interface definition
E – Exercise exceptional behavior
S – Simple scenarios, simple solutions

VideoFreex presents: Mountain, at the 1970 New York Pop Festival


This is not my video. I have no rights to it. I'm posting it anyway, because of what it represents. This is an entirely amateur video production from 1970, documenting a concert from the band Mountain, made by some folks who recognized that independent, DIY, participatory media was The Future, long before it was practical. "During the decade that the Freex were together, this pioneer video group amassed an archive of 1,500+ raw tapes and edits." 1500+ video tapes amassed over 10 years, all before the advent of the Camcorder. And now, the vast majority of them are locked up behind a 0+ paywall. "Television is one of the most revolutionary tools in the entire spectrum of technoanarchy" "[T]he new generation with its transnational interplanetary video consciousness will not tolerate the miniaturized vaudeville that is television as presently employed . We will liberate the media ." (So here, it's liberated.)

The Chaos by Gerard Nolst Trenité

Gerard Nolst Trenité – The Chaos (1922)

Dearest creature in creation
Studying English pronunciation,
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse and worse.

I will keep you, Susy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy;
Tear in eye, your dress you’ll tear;
Queer, fair seer, hear my prayer.

Pray, console your loving poet,
Make my coat look new, dear, sew it!
Just compare heart, hear and heard,
Dies and diet, lord and word.

Sword and sward, retain and Britain
(Mind the latter how it’s written).
Made has not the sound of bade,
Say-said, pay-paid, laid but plaid.

Now I surely will not plague you
With such words as vague and ague,
But be careful how you speak,
Say: gush, bush, steak, streak, break, bleak ,

Previous, precious, fuchsia, via
Recipe, pipe, studding-sail, choir;
Woven, oven, how and low,
Script, receipt, shoe, poem, toe.

Say, expecting fraud and trickery:
Daughter, laughter and Terpsichore,
Branch, ranch, measles, topsails, aisles,
Missiles, similes, reviles.



It goes on for pages.

Originally written in 1920 and revised in the eighties and again in the nineties. Here’s a little history.

Notes on The Chaos
“The Chaos” is a poem which demonstrates the irregularity of English spelling and pronunciation, written by Gerard Nolst Trenité (1870-1946), also known under the pseudonym Charivarius. It first appeared in an appendix to the author’s 1920 textbook Drop Your Foreign Accent: engelsche uitspraakoefeningen. (From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Chaos)
