Hi all,

Daryl Hepting of the University of Regina has asked me to forward this 
call for submissions for a 'Free Knowledge' book.

Shall we submit something? If so, on what kind of topic?


-------- Original Message --------


I am putting together a book based on "Free Knowledge" event
held at the University of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada in
November, 2005.  Although the book will certainly have a
Saskatchewan flavour, I am also seeking contributions from
outside of Saskatchewan.

I would also be very grateful if you would consider forwarding this
call to those who you think might be interested in participating.

I also have a blog about this project at:


All the best,
Daryl Hepting
