Do we need a Creative Commons Salon in Portland?

Creative Commons, as you probably already know, is an organization dedicated to digital rights management, the dismantling of data fiefdoms, and generally being awesome. (This last bit is not a stated goal of the organization, I don't think, but pretty much sums up my opinion of them.)

They have salons, a word which here means "opportunities for smart people to hang out and discuss cool stuff." Currently there's no salon in Portland. What do people think about having one? Comment here (ha! assumes there's anyone reading) or shoot me an email...

Yes please. And if creative commons ideas fringe on copyright, an attorney would be useful (hint, hint).

So many things to make available to the public, so little time and money :)

Sounds interesting. Do you plan on starting one?

@ kevin - yup. Watch this space for preliminary details, I'm going to talk to folks who would be ideal helpmates/speakers and go from there.

Great, shoot me an email at jon@creativecommons.org if you decide to and we'll send off some CC schwag to get you started!
