Two items today from Creative Commons, one outlining their "mission, vision, and priorities for action. The resulting publication, The Future of Creative Commons (2.7 MB PDF), lays out priorities for each area...", and the second a (hard-to-read) annual report called Dispatches from the Commons. Overall it's all about what you would expect - build on foundations, extend use, build sustainability - which is overall good news. I'm a bit concerned about the strategic partnerships (thus, for example, we see Creative Commons tout P2PU, yet say nothing about WikiEducator, which seems backwards). I'm also a bit preturbed by the third part of the mission statement from the Futures document. While "universal access to research, education, and full participation in culture" is great, reference to "a new era of development, growth, and productivity" begins to sound more than a little Imperial.
