I’m just ending the last insane 3 week period in and for a long time (round the world, and almost back to Berlin), and I’ll be writing more about this early next week when I get a chance to breathe, but this week Creative Commons launches its second annual fundraising campaign. More soon about why we might merit your support, but for those ready to help without the pitch, here’s the code:

More from Eric @ CC:

There are two CC Salon events happening this week. One in San Francisco — which will double as the launch party for Creative Commons’ annual fundraising campaign — and one in New York.

CC Salon, San Francisco will take place on Wednesday, October 11, from 6-9pm at Shine (1337 Mission Street, between 9th and 10th Streets). It will feature presentations by David Pescovitz (MAKE, Boing Boing, Institute for the Future), Micki Krimmel (Revver), and Ryan Junell (Webzine, Sagan, SLOMO Video), as well as music by Evolution Control Committee. This event marks the beginning of Creative Commons’ annual fundraising campaign, so don’t hesitate to bring your checkbook (or PayPal login info — we’ll have laptops on hand) to show your support for the work we do. This is your chance to donate a few bucks and be the first person on your block to get the brand new CC t-shirt design.

CC Salon, New York will take place on Friday, October 13, from 8-10pm at Nublu (162 Ave. C, between 4th and 5th Streets). It will feature presentations by Marisa Olson (Rhizome.org) and Paul Slocum (Tree Wave).
