Introduction

To get the ball rolling for at-large class member projects, would the at-large community be interested in creating a project that introduces ourselves to the CyberOne community? We represent a very interesting demographic, namely, interested individuals with no traditional stake in the outcome of the class (no grade, no publication, no letter of recommendation). And yet we are all participating. An important question is, why? I'd be open to ideas about how we can a) get to know one another; b) form a closer community; and c) present the in-class participants with a project that demonstrates our level of interconnectivity and group self-awareness.

Ideas & Projects

International Copyright Wiki

One idea I've had for some time (but not the time nor resources to carry out) is for an International Copyright Wiki, where legal experts and other interested people can enter information about laws and precedents related to Copyright in all the different countries. This would be a great tool for comparing the different systems, to clarify and avoid confusion of the rules (many Norwegians believe American copyright law applies to them, since they see an FBI warning before every rented movie), and also explain (if possible) the connections between them. I do not know much about law myself, and have often felt the need for such a website. Seeing that American copyright regulations are infecting other countries through trade "agreements", I find it natural that American Copyright Law should form the structural basis for such a Wiki, and I believe CyberOne at Harvard Law School would be an perfect place to start.

The TRUTHS Project

TRUTHS is an important idea, expressed in the language of a particular scientific discipline that needs to be better understood by the public, policy makers and scientists working in different fields. How might we use the new media (including Second Life) to clarify a scientific argument? proposed by 'at-large' member User:Dcommerce
