Last year for SXSW, I did this to my hair, and then posted thoughts about it.
This year I did this:
Sticking with the iconography, I went with the Creative Commons logo (and for BoingBoing readers, it's bleached, not shaved). I'm not getting paid for it, I'm just a big fan of their work moving beyond the restrictive, anachronistic, and self-defeating standard way of handling copyright. When people ask me about this thing on the back of my head, I'll be handing them a slip of paper that says:
"Creative Commons is a nonprofit organization that offers flexible copyright licenses for creative works.
License your work under your terms. Their set of standard licenses will let you share music, photos, movies, and text with anyone while protecting your work by limits you put in place. Available internationally. CreativeCommons.org"
What with all the creative types in town for SXSW, I hope to spread the word far and wide.
*Special thanks to mybloody for bleaching my hair and taking pictures
