This is a self-congratulatory post summarizing the Creative Commons summit, and while there is no mention of "shared culture" beyond the headline, it makes for feel-good reading. It was the "shared culture" clip that caught my eye - what 'open' means - or at least, should mean - is not that we all share one culture, but rather, that people from many different values and cultures can share with each other. The more Creative Commons embraces a single shared-culture view of openness, the harder it will be to actually be open.
