Part 3 – “SHOW”. November 11th, 2011 (11/11/11)
It’s CC Festival at The Pigeonhole HackerSpaceSG, 6pm – 10pm. It’s a meetup, really.

  1. Here’s the Google map – g.co/maps/tv7f9. Address is 70A Bussorah Street, Singapore 199483. Walk up to the premises between 6pm – 10pm.
  2. HackerSpaceSG says there’s beer and wine; payment is via a tip jar/ donation bowl. If you bring along finger-foods to share, we might give you a hug (unless you’re adverse to hugging, thereby we’ll find some other way to thank you!)
  3. We’ll screen CC-licensed works from Singapore and worldwide. But mostly we’ll just chillax and get to know people better.
  4. You are welcome to find your own corner, or corner your would-be audience, to talk about your work, barcamp-style.
  5. We welcome all CC SG adopters to treat this like a CC Pasar Malam, promote your wares, and encourage others to use/ reuse.

NOTE: The earlier stated venue was The PigeonHole, so please update your calendars etc. to HackerSpaceSG, 70A Bussorah Street, Singapore 199483.

UPDATE: CC Singapore Day, 11 Nov, 2011 presenters (as posted at the Facebook event page):

  • DJ Reiki will share some of her CC-licensed works.
  • Justin Koh (got arm-twisted) to share about his CC musical endeavors on soundcloud. Justin contributed audio and videow for CC SG Fest.
  • Tech65.org, Chinmay Pendharkar, will share about their CC podcasts.
  • A screening of a made-in-SG CC-licensed film. I’ll keep mum on what this is about. If you grew up in 80s Singapore and have an inkling of the music scene, I think you’ll like this one. This 20min documentary brought a tear to my eye at the end. [Post-event: Video unveiled]
  • Sponsored goodies from Lunarin. Their lead singer couldn’t make it but very kindly donated their band merchandise in support of CC Singapore Day.
  • Thanks to HackerSpaceSG for being the venue host.
