Joi Ito, Pindar Wong in discussion with me about Creative Commons in Hong Kong

January 23, 2008 1 comment

On Monday 21st January 2008, I got a few hours notice that Joi Ito who wears many hats amongst which he is the Chairman of Creative Commons, board member of Mozilla Foundation, board member of SanrioDigital whose staff I work closely with regularly was visiting Outblaze’s offices.

Whilst Joi caught up with SanrioDigital staff members, Pindar Wong an Internet pioneer in Hong Kong who co-founded the first licensed ISP in Hong Kong dropped by to share a few words with Joi. The discussion amongst us veered towards the issues facing bringing Creative Commons to Hong Kong and I’ve blogged about on the Outblaze blog.

Towards the end of our discussion, I send a shout out to lawyers specializing in intellectual property to review the draft of the localized Creative Commons license for Hong Kong so if you are my reader who fits that profile I hope that you will do the right thing

It’s a bit wierd though watching yourself on YouTube though. How do you think I fair ?

NetNewsWire 3.1 is now free

I’m a big fan of NetNewsWire and love its synchronization ability with NewsGator Online. Imagine my suprise when I open up NNW today and come across NewsGator’s CTO Greg Reinacker’s post that all of NewsGator desktop clients are now free and will include synchronization

Thanks to the team at NewsGator for making this decision.

Off to check out FeedDemon on a Windows box
