I am really confused. I don't really understand why registry is providing funds and has partnership with CC? anyway, CC and commons in general are gaining visibility among organizations and that's really good! next step it will be to make people aware about CC!
I would like to remark that I don't see clearly how individuals can involve or participate at CC. I can understand that CC license require legal experts but I am feeling that is a sort of exclusion and doors sound closed for other to volunteer?


.Asia is a registry, but a non-profit mandated with supporting greater Asia and Internet users. It's similar to how .org funds the Internet Society.

Also, it' very easy for individuals who are not legal experts to get involved. There are lots of projects and events as well as internship opportunities. If you're in Japan, you should go to one of the salons.

Fantastic get-together last night at HKU. Looking forward to today's events...
