Halifax, here I come!

I'm excited to head to Nova Scotia for the first time, Halifax to be exact! It's a treat to work with the people who made this happen. And to head up north, even in March, which I'm guessing won't really be spring yet at all, at all.

I'm looking forward to the gig, which has two parts: a Dj set AND a panel discussion. But this time, it's more than panel,  I hear that a manifesto will be read. I'm a fan of manifestos, so I'm looking forward to that!

I'll be talking a bit more about the direction my scholarship is going: combining my interest in sharing, reuse, and connection with the need for marginalized people to protect themselves from exploitation. While I'm not convinced that US style copyright law (or private property rights as currently defined)  is the way to do that I'm really interested in exploring how spaces and practices get defined, and how people claim ownership of different kinds, in cultural expression.
