Frikkin Laser Beams
I’m in Hong Kong at the moment, teaching up here for a week, and, as every time I’m here I find the mixture of old traditions, new technologies and unbridled capitalism both fascinating and repelling at the same time. That said, I’m always a sucker for a good light show, and Hong Kong’s Symphony of Light is always well worth catching; and while the winter fog and mists obscure parts of the city, they’re an excellent medium to bounce spotlights and lasers off! I’ve captured a few long exposure shots from last night’s Symphony which, if you’re interested, you can see mixed in with some other night cityscape shots here.
Creative Commons Hong Kong launches today!
Congratulations to the Creative Commons Hong Kong team who are officially launching the HK ports of the Creative Commons licenses today at a special event which will include appearances by CC founder Lawrence Lessig and Chief Executive Officer Joichi Ito. As a number of people know I use CC licensing a lot with my Communication Studies students, but we also have an offshore cohort in Hong Kong, so now I’m just delighted they can use their own local CC licenses rather than the unported or Australian versions! :) Oh and apparently this is the 50th launch of a local CC license port! 🙂
