Dear all,

Great to see this is taking off. Just one response inline:

> Who will be our focus group? 
> My intention was to have this be geared specifically towards contemporary visual artists, to be used by Open GLAM professionals to promote free licenses by those artists. Over the course of the week, participants also suggested writers, musicians, all types of creators. Perhaps we can start with one geared towards contemporary artists, in order to have something of quality in a timely manner, and move further? Or make something more encompassing? 
I think it makes sense to focus on contemporary visual artists at first. Since this is not my field I won't be involved at this point. But please let me know once you've matured and start focussing on for instance musicians and creators of moving images.



> I see this document being something similar to the Wikimedia Foundation's Annual Report: http://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Annual_Report  
> Imagine a document that looks good online and on paper, with simple calls to action for artists to share their works. If we're pitching to visual artists, it's important that we have a visually attractive document with short and simple writing styles and visual examples of free work.
> Who will print it? Who will support this financially? Will we need that at all? (The artists I know prefer to hold things in their hand versus have a PDF online...) 
> What names will be on it - as in organizational names. Where will this document live? 
> I'm on airport wifi right now and it won't let me connect to Ether or PiratePads. So perhaps someone can dump this to the Piratepad or It'll just have to wait until I'm back in the States and not jet lagged :) 
> Please add your name and contact information. We'll most likely have to have the occasional Skype/Hangout call, too. 
> I also encourage you to share resources, and start brainstorming. I have to tie this into my volunteer capacity since I do not have the pleasure (yet) to work in the GLAM/Open Culture field in a paid capacity at this time, so it'll take a happy group of volunteers to make this develop quickly!
