CCi International Conference - Creating Value: Between Commerce and Commons

Some of you might be interested in the following conference, which takes place here in Brisbane in June. It might not be immediately obvious from the themes, but much of the conference will be about user-led content creation / p2p production / produsage (as well as questions around the increasing commercial embrace of commons models).

More information, including a tentative list of keynote speakers, is on the CCi Website (likely speakers include people like Henry Jenkins, Mark Deuze, and Susan Greenfield). Abstract submissions close on 21 April, so there's still some time to put in a paper!

Creating Value: Between Commerce and Commons

25-27 June 2008
Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia

Deadline extended - Closing date for Abstract and Full papers is now 21 April 2008

Conference themes

We are planning six broad strands of themed content at the conference. These are not separate mini-conferences; programming will be designed to cross-fertilise approaches and interrupt disciplinary comforts. Papers are solicited for all strands. Further details about each theme are available click here.

Cultural Science
Convened by John Hartley (research director of CCi and leader of its citizen-consumer program)

Creative Capital and Workforce Futures
Convened by Erica McWilliam (leader of CCi creative workforce program)

Legal Issues for Social Networks and Creating Public Value
Convened by Brian Fitzgerald (leader of CCi legal frameworks program)

Citizen Journalism: Diversifying Information? Democratising Conversation?
Convened by Terry Flew (leader of ARC-funded citizen journalism Linkage project)

Broadband innovations and the creative economy
Convened by Julian Thomas (leader of CCi international [global and regional] program)

Creative Industry development agendas: design as value-add

Hope to see you there!

I wanted to add that this http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=15876230 not as something new to the whole but I'm wanting to give notice of the peer to peer or person to person lending/loan/finance model going around.

This is somewhat related which I found linked at the p2pfoundation.net site - LINK
