I'll be 40 this year (2006), living with my family near Bordeaux, France, and working as an airline pilot on Air France Airbus 340. When I discovered NVC, 4 years ago, it became obvious to me to bring the copyleft tools to NVC network. I then sent a few emails about it (copy of two of them below). During summer 2003, I started a part of http://nvc-europe.org with a copyleft software ( http://spip.net ), and now Fabien Rohrhurst (nvc-europe.org webmaster, data-processing engineer), wants to set the whole french-speaking part under SPIP (a free software under GPL license).
How copyleft could contribute to my need of consistency with NVC ?
this is the copy of a mail sent to the CNVC staff on Aug 2002
Hello to you all!
This evening (15 aug 2002), I shared something precious for me, during a NVC "immersion" training, co-animated by Vilma Costetti, Charlotte Duprez Mourman, Pascale Molho and Marie Louise Sibazuri, near Lyon, France.
I shared it after Pascale's presentation of the CNVC, and she suggested to me to write it down to Gary Baran. (After reflecting it to others, I felt open hearted to give it to Marshall.) I also give it to the CNVC Webmaster, and to the Idea-Man, because it has to do with computers and great ideas.
- When I see a "copyright" on NVC documents, I feel puzzled, because I need consistency.
- When I see a "copyright" on a document, it reminds me of the protection of a merchandise.
- A nice dead merchandise.
I would prefer a "copyleft": it would remind me, I am recieving a living gift. It would remind me it is the result of a daily creation, that began with Marshall's grand-mother, and maybe even before ;-) More than that: I would feel eager to participate to this wonderful co-creation.
My request: would you agree to protect NVC creations with a "copyleft"? Whatever is your answer, I would be grateful, if it makes sens for you, to share your evolution about it.
PS: In the case you don't know about copyleft, this my perception of it:
- - it permited the creation of GNU/Linux.
- - it protects creations, not only softwares, from the general tendency to merchandise the world.
- You will find plenty of informations about it on the net.
