Hi everyone,

We would like your story ideas about collaboration in the commons!

We will produce 2-3 case studies collecting research and storytelling of
collaboration as it occurs over time, reporting our results in the next
State of the Commons. We want to investigate and report on the most
compelling stories about collaboration in the commons, which means we need
to be able to tell the story of when and why a creator first decides to use
CC, the kinds of connections they make online, how they invite and
encourage collaboration, and what makes them feel like they are valued for
their work and part of a community. We’re looking for stories that are
similar to the 2016 State of the Commons
<http://stateof.creativecommons.org>, but deeper, getting at the heart of
what really drives collaboration online.

This is part of the next phase of our work with online content platforms,
which consists of two categories of activities: Prosocial work and CC
usability projects. More on usability later. With regards to prosocial, read
this post
we published outlining the work:

“We are broadening our focus to look more holistically at sharing and
collaboration online. We will investigate the values and behaviors
associated with successful collaboration, in the hopes that we might apply
them to content platforms where CC licensing is taking place, thereby
enhancing the experience of sharing with CC.”

Fill out this short form <https://goo.gl/forms/2u6Xi2xTP99yY0662> (it takes
3 minutes to complete). We plan to contact, interview, and follow these
creators or projects over the next year. So if you can think of 1-2
compelling leads, please share. We will keep the form open through *15

We are prioritizing, but not limiting ourselves to, the following fields:


   3D printing*

   Arts & Culture

   Media & Journalism

Looking forward to your ideas! Please feel free to forward this email to
your networks. We will also publish a blog post tomorrow.


Jane & Sarah

*Note that we will be sharing 3D printing story leads with a third party
researcher, Stephanie Santoso, formerly with the Obama White House OSTP,
who is working with us to further case studies in this field.
