> Hi Marc
> Please forward to your list if you think it's appropriate.
> < Collaborative Cultures> // < COMMONSense >
> Access Space in Sheffield is seeking contributions for a magazine to
> be published this autumn. The issue will reflect
> a theme which connects the activities of Access Space to the wider
> The theme of the issue is < COMMONSense >. Not so long ago, the
> only people who talked about "the commons" were historians; today, the
> language of the commons is central to debates around intellectual
> property, environmental protection, and resistance to globalisation.
> These international debates find their echoes here in South Yorkshire
> - in the activities of Access Space, recycling waste technology and
> promoting Open Source software, or in Grow Sheffield's efforts to
> build local food networks and seed city centre wasteland. Can talk of
> "the commons" help us find common ground between these kinds of
> projects? Does using the same words mean we've found a common language
> - or can it disguise different meanings and intentions?
> We're looking for pieces of COMMONSense – prose (stories, thoughts, book
> reviews, bibliographies...), poetry, songs, pieces of code, photographs,
> cartoons, drawings, graphics or anything else you can think of.
> These might approach the theme in relation to green
> issues, land ownership, social relations, the internet, the music
> industry, copyright, software, or anything else that makes sense to
> The format of the magazine means that each contribution will take up a
> single A5 page. With that in mind, we're looking for the following:
> * written texts of up to 200 words
> * or poems of up to 20 lines
> * or black and white drawings, cartoons, photos or other graphics
> Images should be at least 300 dpi and in JPEG, PNG or TIFF format.
> Texts should be in TXT, ODT or DOC format.
> We ask that your contributions be made available to us under a
> Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial license
> (see http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/2.0/uk/ )
> The magazine will be freely accessable from the web.
> Although we cannot pay for contributions, there will be a limited
> print edition and each contributor will receive a free copy.
> The deadline for submissions is 26 September 2008
> Please send your contribution by email to collaborativecultures at googlemail.com
> Attachments should be no more than 6 Mb.
