I’ve been at work on the new issue of the Project for A New Mythology.
Volume 4: Remix is coming together. It’s going to be an entirely online issue, with the stories being put out there under Creative Commons licenses that will allow readers to take the stories and remix them. We’ll specifically be using the Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike license (read its legal deed here and legal code here).
I solicited stories from past contributors, and a few new acquaintances. I had hoped to get, at the very least, four volunteers — six at the most — to join me in this experiment (see the Australian site remixmylit.com to get an idea of what we’re doing). I got eight, with my contribution, that’s nine stories.
The goal is to have everything ready for a late September, early October release. Then, with the pages up, we will invite our readers, fellow writers, internet passers-by to remix the stories under the same creative commons license agreement, and to share those remixes with us by either submitting their remixes directly back to The Project for A New Mythology, or swapping links with us to where ever they post their remix.
I’m very excited about this.
