For those in Dunedin, Creative Commons Aotearoa NZ will be hosting a discussion session just prior to the opening of the NetHui South Conference (see this post). Anything CC-related can be raised, discussed or debated, though the focus will likely be on open access and Open Educational Resources.
The session is open to anyone, regardless of whether you’re attending NetHui. Matt McGregor, CC ANZ’s Public Lead, will be down from Wellington to facilitate.

What is NetHui South?
From the NetHui South Website:
This is an Internet conference with a distinctly South Island flavour. In common with its parent (national) NetHui conference, the defining feature of NetHui South is its community-led and participatory nature.
The overarching theme of NetHui South is ‘Shaping Our Future Together,’ a subject that addresses the varied and complex challenges arising from the Internet. In connecting local Internet issues to the international context, NetHui South provides a platform for involving and engaging local communities.
