cc cert for nonprofits, social justice
Given CC’s current value proposition, what role should we play beyond licensing of content*? What happens after content becomes open and enters the commons? What more can or should happen, and how do you think CC can help?
We have some ideas -- search/discovery, training to enable more reuse -- but we'd love to hear from those in room.
