David Bollier will speak about the themes of his new book, Viral Spiral: How the Commoners Built a Digital Republic of Their Own (New Press). The book is the first comprehensive history of the ‘free culture’ movement and ‘sharing economy’ that is empowering ordinary people, disrupting markets and changing politics and culture.
Bollier will talk about the rise of free and open source software, Creative Commons licenses, the new forms of non-market creativity (Wikipedia, blogs, remix music, videos) as well as fascinating innovations in open science, open education and ‘open business models’.
