10:00am to 1:00pm
Participants will work together to design a tool capable of harnessing existing services such as search engines, social media APIs and data visualization libraries to create a visual picture of how items of Creative Commons content are being viewed, shared and republished over time.
While established content providers seek to protect their content and prevent unauthorised republication, increasing numbers of people -- including our initiative, Visualizing Palestine -- now seek the opposite, using Creative Commons and other copyleft licenses to positively encourage the unrestricted sharing and reproduction of their work.
However, this leaves us with the challenge of how to track and measure where our content is being shared and republished. While individual platforms, such as Facebook and YouTube offer statistics on the viewing and sharing of content at its original point of publication, there is no single tool suited to analyzing the wider sharing and republication of work across the web.
