Knowledge, Learning, Community

Creative Commons has been focusing more on open education recently, which is overall a good thing. I recently participated in discussions regarding their work plan for the next year. Maybe 90 percent of the 'platform goals' are centered around advocacy. I'm not a fan; as I said at the meeting, "it's easy, and consists of telling other people what they should do" (as I tell my left-wing friends, I believe in working for change, not fighting for change). Two of the four actual activities are based on advocacy, while we may also see another round of Lightning Talks (which were very popular) and 'additional learning circles', which I think should be the top priority (and I'll participate and share whatever knowledge I have if these get organized).
