Hey all, I wanted to alert you to a panel I'm on next week in San 
Francisco. Needless to say it is going to be major PR in the art world 
for Inkscape and Open Clip Art Library. If anyone is in the area, it 
would be a great event to attend. I'm also excited because the number 2 
person at creativecommons (under lessig) is on the panel.

Please forward the following PR below:


On Thursday, November 18, 2004, SFMOMA (www.sfmoma.org) presents:

The Open-Source Paradigm

A Panel Discussion & Reception
Moderated by Linda Jacobson, featuring new media professor Greg Niemeyer 
(http://art.berkeley.edu/niemeyer/) from UC Berkeley, artist-developer 
Jon Phillips (www.rejon.org), and Creative Commons 
(www.creativecommons.org) assistant director Neeru Paharia.

7:00 p.m. in the Phyllis Wattis Theater

Visual artists and sound artists who create with digital tools have 
started to embrace the community-based, open-source software approach 
that's revolutionized the computer industry. As a reaction to the 
restrictions of intellectual property rights, the Open Source Initiative 
provides free computer software via the Web and allows anyone to 
contribute software as long as the underlying source codes are visible 
and shared. Explorations of the creative applications of open-source 
promise to expand its use beyond software development. This panel 
discusses the conceptual basis for the open-source movement in the arts, 
its history, and legal issues and presents artistic projects 
incorporating open-source technology. A reception in The Schwab Room 
follows the program.

$12 general; $8 SFMOMA members, students with ID, and seniors. Tickets 
are available at SFMOMA (with no surcharge) or online.
This event is presented in collaboration with SMAC (San Francisco Media 
Arts Council).

event on videogames' impact on artists featuring pioneers Will Wright 
and Nolan Bushnell
