This is the general planning space for a December 2007 event synchronized with other CC Parties around the world, all throwing a party to celebrate Creative Commons' 5th birthday.



Anyone interested in or who already knows the young Creative Commons anywhere in the world.


A birthday party for Creative Commons for all of the friends, users, developers, and soon-to-be friends of Creative Commons. There will be drinks, music, videos and so much fun. Also, the event will be coordinated with other CC Birthday Parties in hopes of having a continuous birthday celebration and synchronization to light up the blogosphere, explore CC-licensed content, and to meet up with friends.


Saturday, December 15, 2007, 8 PM - 2 AM (San Francisco time -- other locations within 24 hours of this time will be considered "synchronized")
