The Creative Commons Salon is modelled after such successful endeavours as Remix Reading and Dorkbot which have helped to bring artists and developers together in the post-digital era, face-to-face.

While online meeting and creation are "par for the course" these days, nothing replaces face-to-face interaction and the rate of exchange that takes places from a good monthly event.

Also, the Salon model, which harkens back to 17th Century France is an apt model for this type of gathering which is half social and half intellectual.

Eric Steuer and Jon Phillips developed the initial concept and model for CC Salon. Replicate.
