Economy of creativity

Very interesting lecture (now with English captions) from CopyCamp conference about different theories of creativity economics. Classical theories are not sufficient here, but there are two interesting approaches: economy of singularities by Lucien Karpik and economy of prestige by James F. English. Also about basic income as a solution to a need of remunerating artists.

Edwin Bendyk is well known journalists interested in new media.

„Transparency activist and journalist Barrett Brown has been indicted for doing something many of us do every day: posting a link on the Internet.”

He linked to classifed material but wasn’t involved in leaking it. Still has to face 105 y in prison.
