This evening and over the weekend, I’ll be attending a conference on “free culture” organized by Kathryn Montgomery and colleagues at American University. I’ll be the least hip person present, since everyone else will be either techno-savvy or into some kind of subversive cultural form (such as political hip-hop), or both. My plan is to listen and learn. There’s a pre-conference blog with a list of participants. Facilities have been arranged so that everyone can be online and blog away during the whole meeting, if so inclined.
