Looks like my old pod is going to be taken down for good, so I've added most of my old follows and whatnot to this account. In the meantime, here's a proper #newhere post for the new account.

I'm Christian, I'm currently struggling for a #phd in mathematics - category theory and algebraic topology specifically. I'm interested in #freeculture and #freesoftware, and my hobbies are listening to #music (#metal and #neoclassical are my favorites, but I like a lot of stuff), watching the #nhl (Go Capitals!) and playing #pokemon (I have ultra moon version). Politically I'm pretty far left. I don't post super often, but I'm on diaspora reading and commenting pretty much every day. I've set my account to follow back anyone who adds me.

I also use XMPP if anyone is interested in being #penpals over IM.

Also jemand hatte sich ja beklagt, dass diese Beiträge soooo lang würden und es voll anstrengend ist da drüber zu scrollen, wenn es einen nicht interessiert, man es aber schon aufgeklappt hat.

Durch eine glückliche Fügung hat der Zufall diese Woche entschieden, dass #Plume das Veröffentlichungs-Werkzeug der Wahl sein soll und das Ding ist dafür gedacht längere Artikel zu schreiben und darum ist dieser Artikel vollständig dort hin ausgelager (einfach auf die Überschrift klicken). Und dort habe ich wiederum Teile des Artikels nach #... show more


 

CC Search is out of beta with 300M images and easier attribution

Today CC Search comes out of beta, with over 300 million images indexed from multiple collections, a major redesign, and faster, more relevant search. It’s the result of a huge amount of work from the engineering team at Creative Commons and our community of volunteer developers.

Hi all, i'm looking for CC0 (public domain) sound effects, more specifically i'm looking for a calm sound effect that i can use for my mini-application "calm timer"

So far i've been using freesound and there are some good CC0 sounds there, but does anyone know of another source for public domain sound effects?

Grateful for help!

This beautiful little book is moving house for the 6th time. At FOSDEM, or CopyleftConf rather, I finally met https://singpolyma.net in person!

I claimed it had bite marks, but I'll have to disappoint -- it seems I was mistaken.

@funkwhale
I just found out that a rapper I've been listening to for years has released his last three albums as #CreativeCommons nc-by-sa. (The licence information is in the notes for each song.)
Someone who runs a #Funkwhale instance might want to add his #music to their instance.

Recently at opengameart I have noticed a user named Cethiel who is paid via #patreon to create #CC0 #game #art (he posts standard resolution art at OGA and his patreons get access to HD versions as well). Check out his patreon and twitter.

He made a very nice 2D weapon collection, which I have turned into #3D models with #Blender. He collaborated with me a bit and provided me with the HD files for the reference. I have now released the models ( #CC0, #publicdomain as well ):

Today I have recreated two animations for Wikimedia Commons. Here they are side by side:

Image/Photo

They show Galilean (left) and Lorentz (right) transformations used in physics, by showing an observer moving along a world line and a number of random events in space-time. Lorentz transform is used in theory of relativity and its consequences are some things -- such as simultaneity of events happening in different places, distances and durations -- being relative to the frame of reference.

Similar animations are already present at Wikimedia Commons, but are not #publicdomain. I recreate such files and release them under #CC0 so that they are not restricted by #copyright. I have written a #python script (also #CC0) to generate the animations (it can be found here).

I have started recreating some basic non- #publicdomain media files at Wikimedia Commons as #CC0. All files at Wikimedia Commons are free as in freedom, but a lot still suffer from #copyright restrictions -- putting any kind of restrictions on things like diagrams is at best a huge overkill, a bad precedent and a wrong, anti- #freeculture habit.

Here is my #pi unroll animation, made with #Blender and Aileron font by dot colon (an exceptionally rare example of #CC0 font):

I used #Blender and Aileron font by dot colon, which is CC0 uncopyrighted. My goal was to replace [a similar file](https://dia.so/3dr which is free, but licensed GFDL, i.e. still restricted by #copyright. That is a huge overkill for such a basic file.

At #slavery, night shift. I have downloaded #TuxPaint on my tablet and created a concept of a catchable ( #Pokémon -like ) monster. Releasing under #CC0. This is a second monster of what I am hoping will eventually become a complete #publicdomain set of catchable monsters.

We're still in a desperate need of #publicdomain educational materials documenting the very basics of important topics like space or #history. Partly to address this, I've created a #CC0 #3D model of the #Giza pyramid complex, including the known interiors, for anyone who wants to study this great wonder of our civilization. It's a reasonably accurate 3D map of the complex.




I've also created a basic 3D flyover animation of Giza:

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Giza_pyramid_complex_3D_flyover.webm

You can download the model here:

https://www.blendswap.com/blends/view/93725
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Giza3D.stl

All made with #foss only of course: #Blender, #ffmpeg, #Gimp and so on. Already uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. I hope you will reuse it, and my hope is you will keep the derivative works in the public domain as well. It would be great if someone could e.g. create an interactive tour with the #Godot engine.

Let's not forget that #copyright is a #propaganda term. It doesn't give anyone any rights, it takes away all rights from everyone in the Universe except for one person (who is also mostly a corpse).

I have asked some months ago, but I think it is time to try again: I am looking for a native American/English partner to translate my novels & texts in English.Ofc, we would share the income from English patronage.
I am fluent enough to check the work but not to do it myself.
My work is based upon Crusade history, murder mysteries & short stories.

#TIL that #SpaceX publishes #photos under #CC0. This is extremely important as there are VERY few world-wide #publicdomain images from #space, even though these are very important for #education and research. Images by #NASA, as a government organization, are public domain by the #USA law, but this generally only applies to the USA, plus NASA explicitly states something like "conditions of use" of the images, even though it probably couldn't enforce them legally. SpaceX simply and clearly makes the images reusable world-wide and shows the encouragement of doing so by using CC0.

As much as I usually dislike #Elon #Musk and corporations in general, this is a very good move.

Now excuse me, I have to reupload these photos to Wikimedia Commons :)

An incredible #painting by William-Adolphe Bouguereau, who is becoming my favorite painter of #realism. It is from #1896, #publicdomain (no #copyright even on the scan -- faithful representation of 2D #art doesn't create copyright).




Provided by #Wikipedia's sister project Wikimedia Commons -- maybe the biggest collection of #freeculture works. Consider contributing :)


 

Degenerates -- Art Without Copyright!

I have found this amazing #lightweight #website of an #art group/project called The #Degenerates. They share all their art in the #publicdomain under #CC0!

https://degenerates.neocities.org/

One of the member projects is the 10kb art gallery -- art that fits in 10 kilobytes, and is public domain as well.

I am very happy to have found this because the spirit goes exactly along the lines of what I imagine the web should be -- simplicity and efficiency of both the technology and sharing. Check it out :)
