Hi Zäme

Apologies to those of you who already get this mailing list for the duplication, but I thought the idea of this wiki for content
under Creative Commons or Public Domain licences might interest some of you who don't.

Hello Project Leads,

This is an invitation -- please help us!

"A Wikipedia of Free Culture?"

_Q: How to plan a wiki? A: Hash out ideas on a wiki._

So we set up a wiki[1] and we're holding a barn raising[2] there.
You're invited[3].

Our objective is to plan a "Get Content" wiki, a scalable catalog of
"some rights reserved" and "no rights reserved" works.

A truly international catalog of CC and PD works. A Wikipedia[4] of
Free Culture, democratically maintained and curated.

Can this work? We have a hunch that it can, but we've doubtless missed
many solutions and innumerable problems.

What we have thought of is of course on the wiki[5], where you should
go[6] without further adieu and add your ideas[7].

Note for anyone excited about the idea: we're planning at this stage.
The wiki we're using for the planning may not be the one we use to
implement the "Get Content" wiki (do help us figure that one out) --
so you may wish to curb your enthusiasm for raw cataloging just right

Now dive in![8]
