Rich Media and the Commons

I have been an active contributor to the Internet Archive since early 2004 (memory is uncertain). It is a fantastic resource. Yesterday I updated the Archive files of the CD I recorded in 2005 Ambient Time Arm, so that the recently added media player widget on the site now plays the tracks at the right speed.
All the films, audio and text that I have put out on the Internet Archive are accessible via the Downloads button in the left side column of this blog.
Speaking of circulating media, yesterday I was sent a link to the video on YouTube by The Green Children for Hear Me Now, their tribute to the brilliant work of Professor Muhammad Yunus of the Grameen Bank.
As well the soon to be released documentary Copyright Criminals: This is a Sampling Sport has pre-release segments on the Internet Archive.
All of the material on the Internet Archive is Creative Commons registered. With the growth of both the Commons and the Archive and recent statements made by US Presidential hopefuls, the future for the Commons looks bright.
