Students for Free Culture, February 19-20, NYU

Students for Free Culture love to share, but sometimes sharing isn't easy. When the online world of bits meets the offline world of atoms, the laws and norms that help us figure out what we're comfortable sharing and what we're not can become fuzzy. Like Shareable, Students for Free Culture believe that sharing can make the world a better place, and they've assembled an exciting event in NYC this weekend to figure out how. Students for Free Culture, February 19-20, NYU The Students for Free Culture Conference 2011 is a gathering of student activists, intellectuals, artists, hackers, and generally interested people to discuss the latest issues in the free cultural world, with a special focus on student involvement and participation. The conference will take place in New York City from February 19-20. It will feature keynotes from the creators of Diaspora, Brazilian professor and activist Pablo Ortellado, and professor and former Obama Administration advisor Susan Crawford. Panel sessions throughout the day feature a fantastic group of makers and thinkers in remix culture, open education, and fashion. On Sunday, the event transforms into an all-day "unconference" where anyone is invited to pose a panel, discussion, gathering, or hack session. Registration for SFC NYC is pay-what-you-want. Hope to see you on Saturday!
