The dynamic line-up for May 10 includes <a href="http://egofood.blogspot.com/">Chris DiBona</a>, the <a href="http://code.google.com/">Open Source Programs Manager for Google</a>, discussing Google, Creative Commons, and the <a href="http://code.google.com/soc">Google Summer of Code</a>, of which Creative Commons is a <a href="http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Summer_of_Code_2006">mentoring organization</a> (applications due May 8).
<a href="http://goldberg.berkeley.edu/">Ken Goldberg</a> (Artist and <a href="http://berkeley.edu/">UC Berkeley</a> Professor) and <a href="http://www.tiffanyshlain.com/">Tiffany Shlain</a> (founder of the <a href="http://www.webbyawards.com/">Webby Awards</a>) are presenting their film, <a href="http://tribethefilm.com/">The Tribe</a>, an award-winning film screened at the 2006 <a href="http://festival.sundance.org/2006/">Sundance</a> and <a href="http://www.tribecafilmfestival.org/">Tribeca Film Festivals</a> about the unorthodox, unauthorized history of the Jewish people and the Barbie doll...in about 15 minutes." Ken also is showing a short video of his project "Ballet Mori: a ballet conducted by the Earth" that commemorates the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake.
