Creative Commons (What have you done?)

Larry Lessig is calling for a final push to raise funds for the Creative Commons.

If you didn't have a chance to see his Free Culture keynote a few years back (he delivered it around a hundred times at various places), it's worth watching. I saw it the first year I went to OSCON . . . powerful message. There's a lot more of Larry to be found in his books and other presentations, but I like the point of his Free Culture keynote, always gets me riled up to do something.

A few weeks back Heidi and I ended up spending an evening talking about being more generous in our philanthropic contributions, and setting a yearly goal to donate more to causes we found compelling. Larry's call came right in time, and the Creative Commons is compelling.

What have you done?

do something

Update: it's getting down to the wire . . . if you still haven't donated be sure to read this on Flickr before you do. I missed it, could have made a bigger difference.
