Web 2.0 and Creative Commons – two events

Went to two presentations at work yesterday.

The first was a webcast from ALIA Access 2010 on Information literacy and Web 2.0 in libraries with presentations from  Louise Pieper at Gold Coast City Council and their online book club in the form of Book Coasters blog – we had some tech problems with the streaming but I gather it was an overt book club but also a covert Web 2.0, information literacy tool for staff and clients.  The next presentation was from Christopher Stephen at Read How You Want – a publisher who’s taken advantage of the long tail and publish-on-demand to re-publish books in tailored large print, e-pub, braille and audio formats for print handicapped customers and libraries.  Really neat niche operation that profit shares with the big publishers.  I was sorry to miss the third presentation on Online Learning and Web 2.0 from the session from Linda Barron at SLQ but I had to go to my next event for the day! 

Creative Commons Roadshow 2010

The main show for the day was the Creative Commons Roadshow 2010, best described by them as: 

designed for those interested in finding out about CC for the first time, looking for an update on recent developments and the Australian Version 3.0 licences, or wanting to know how CC is being used by people in their local area 

Great presentations which I won’t recap here (the links in the description take you to the information), but I do want to capture some sites that were mentioned that caught my attention (listed here in no particular order, grabbed some of these on the iPhone as they were mentioned): 

There were a whole bunch more some of which I wrote down but I don’t have access to my notes right now, I’ll add them when I get a chance…
15/9/10 – Here are some more links (somewhat at random!):
