"Participatory Culture in Australia" or sounds fine, even though it's
a bit long. Maybe have "A Guide to" in a smaller font size above it. I
was thinking "Free Culture" instead of "Participatory Culture" seeing
as that's what Creative Commons is, but I'm not sure what the
differences between those two terms are. It'll be defined in the book
Anyway, does anyone else think the end of December isn't much time,
with the amount proposed? I'm not saying we should hurry (or maybe I
am,) but hopefully we have enough manpower to finish this. It'll be a
great start to the chapter.

I still haven't figured out a good name for it (possibly "Handbook for
Partipatory Culture in Australia", but gosh that's long), but it will
basically be a good companion to the miniconf, with brief
intro/overviews to lots of themes that we are familiar with relating
to openness and freedom - see the initial list here:
<http://wikimedia.org.au/wiki/Participatory_Culture_Primer> And there
will be some "essential links" for each topic, as well as information
particular to the Australian context.
Basically it will work like this: we supply all the content, they
supply the layout and printing. I think it is an excellent plan that
plays to the strengths of both groups. We should supply the content by
the end of December or earlier. Of course it will be under a free
license, probably CC-BY-SA.
