newsletter 11-17-2008

Hi all

It’s a pleasure to get in touch you with our first newsletter; something we owed you since the beginning of this project, more than one year ago.

I’d like to start telling you that, since July 2008, Safe Creative is part of Communia, an organization founded by the European Commission, in order to create a network of organizations to become a point of reference for theoretical analysis and strategic policy discussion of issues concerning the public domain in the digital environment.

Now a few numbers: We have more than 9.000 users and 40.000 registered works! Thanks a lot for your trust!

¿Do you want to know about the things we are doing or going to do?

Future improvements

We are gathering and analyzing all the proposals you have sent us to improve the usability of our web. Thanks to everybody for your collaboration and we encourage you to go on sending suggestions.

Also we are developing an open API to be able to create integrations with all kinds of projects in the future.

To end with the novelties just let you know that since a few months ago, we are integrating the ccREL standard based in RDFa approved by W3C in our tag’s and registry page’s html. This way we are getting reado for the semantic web or 3.0 web.
