>Wealth by copyleft
>Creativity in the digital age
>3rd Oekonux Conference
>Project Oekonux [] does research on the
>economical, political and social forms of Free Software. Similar to
>the development of Free Software, different people with different
>reasons and different approaches get together in this project to build
>something new. One question, a lot of people are interested in, is,
>whether and if so, how, the principles of the development of Free
>Software can serve as a basis for a new society.
>The 3rd Oekonux conference []
>"Wealth by copyleft -- Creativity in the digital age" takes up the
>diversity of the project. Among other things it aims at learning
>something about how the example of Free Software is perceived and
>realized in other fields. Together with our co-organizers Bureau for
>Philosophy in Vienna we are proud to welcome more than 30 invited
>contributors which will share their experience, studies and insights
>with us on topics like
>o    Free Software communities, hackers, and self-organization from
>     various sociological, cultural historical, and philosophical
>     perspectives
>o    Organization and domination in Free Projects
>o    Experiences from Free Software projects
>o    Free Software and political movements
>o    Various perspectives on Free Hardware, Indymedia, and Wikis
>o    Free Software and Internet in the non-industrialized world
>o    The role of compensation and exchange for Free Activities
>o    "Intellectual property" and Free Publication in science
>o    Fundamental changes in the contemporary world of work and
>     production and their possible meaning
>Moreover the program of the conference contains the public
>presentation of the Austrian version of the CreativeCommons license as
>well as an art project. Please see the program page
>[] for detailed information.
>After the inspiration of the 1st []
>and 2nd [] Oekonux Conference we
>hope and expect that in an open atmosphere critical voices as much as
>the enthusiasm of the hackers once more will merge into a creative
>process. We hope and expect, that again the wide range of
>presentations contributed by German speaking and international
>participants will lead to new insights and broader understanding for
>all. We hope and expect, that as before we will have a lot of fun
>:-) .
